About this Book

Beyond the Book

This article relates to The Fractal Murders

Print Review

The Judge Advocate General's Corps are naval lawyers.  The JAGs were established within the Department of the Navy in 1967 at which time these specialized military lawyers became a distinct professional group within the Navy, similar to physicians and chaplains.

Mark Cohen served as a JAG for 20 years. His next book, Bluetick Revenge has just been published.

The Fractal Murders is one of those relatively rare self-publishing success stories.  Mark Cohen worked with three agents who failed to find a publisher for it, so in 2002 he published it himself.  Two years later he'd sold a few thousand books and got plenty of word of mouth coverage - at which point Mysterious Press, a division of Warner Books, bought the rights and republished it.
