Author – Jeffrey A. Cooper

This blog and website for crime thriller author Jeffrey A. Cooper showcases original crime fiction novels and short stories.  My books are dark, comic, fast-paced, action thrillers. I'm a fan of sharp, funny dialogue, unique characters, engrossing action, and plots with unpredictable twists and turns. I write the kind of books that I like to read, and I hope you'll join me.


“Out to Get Me”, will be released on October 20, 2023. It’s a tense, adrenaline-fueled crime thriller about the consequences of greed and betrayal, and is filled with unexpected twists and turns. Set in modern day Los Angeles, a frightened, morally-conflicted woman tries to save her kidnapped husband from the dangerous criminal he robbed that morning while being chased by a determined, relentless killer seeking the five million dollars in her car that she needs to save her husband’s life. It will be available in hardcover, paperback, digital and audiobook.

This fall, I’m premiering my new web series, “Crime Novels to Film”, where I take on the book version versus the movie version debate to see which one I think told a famous crime novel better. The first season highlights crime fiction legends like Elmore Leonard, Walter Mosley, Patricia Highsmith, James Ellroy, Dashiell Hammett, Gillian Flynn, Janet Evanovich, and James Patterson, along with feature film adaptations from classic film directors like Quentin Tarantino, Curtis Hanson, David Fincher, Carl Franklin, Anthony Minghella, John Huston and Guillermo Del Toro. I’ve got a lot of great books and movies to cover, so I hope you’ll join me.

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for reading. I like people like you.
