Books by John A. Miller

COYOTE MOON by John A. Miller
Released: Nov. 1, 2003

"Superb, often laugh-out-loud first half. Then no more jokes."
Miller abandons suspense (Tropical Heat, 2002, etc.) for what at first looks like a supernatural satire on baseball, reincarnation, and quantum physics—with some of the funniest sports spoofs since Ring Lardner. Read full book review >
TROPICAL HEAT by John A. Miller
Released: Feb. 1, 2001

"Rich swatches of the old James M. Cain, neatly done though hardly new."
Miller abandons his San Francisco setting and Vietnam vet-turned-lawyer Claude McCutcheon series (Causes of Action, 1999, etc.) for a sexy mystery thriller set in Hopewell, Virginia. Read full book review >
CAUSES OF ACTION by John A. Miller
Released: Jan. 1, 1999

"More assured as a storyteller, though perhaps too comfortable with tired genre conventions, Miller has his best book yet in what appears to be a series about the peculiar pathologies that have turned some vets good and others very, very bad."
Miller's laid-back, pistol-packing legal champion of the San Francisco Bay Area's down-and-out returns in a meandering tale of honor and betrayal among Viet Nam vets. Read full book review >
CUTDOWN by John A. Miller
Released: April 1, 1997

"A tentative, turbulent, yet promising first novel that aspires, somewhat unsuccessfully, to a grand statement on personal destiny and military honor."
Rugged, gory, misanthropic tale of a Vietnam vet turned lawyer who can't keep himself away from sleazy characters and the trouble they bring. Read full book review >
JACKSON STREET by John A. Miller
Released: Feb. 28, 1995

"An impressively serious and professional debut from a man who served in Vietnam himself and obviously knows whereof he writes."
A few of these gritty tales about military men have appeared in literary magazines, but they deserve a wider audience. Read full book review >
