Theodore J. Cohen, PhD, holds three degrees in the physical sciences from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and has been an engineer and scientist for more than 45 years. From December 1961 through early March 1962, he participated in the 16th Chilean Expedition to the Antarctic. The US Board of Geographic Names in October, 1964, named the geographical feature Cohen Islands, located at 63° 18' S. latitude, 57° 53' W. longitude in the Cape Legoupil area, Antarctica, in his honor. Cold Blood, The Antarctic Murders Trilogy, comprises three novels he wrote based on this expedition. Frozen in Time: Murder at the Bottom of the World (Book I) describes what happened following the robbery of the Banco Central de Chile in Talcahuano in May, 1960. Unfinished Business: Pursuit of an Antarctic Killer (Book II) reveals the events that unfolded between March 1962 and March 1965. End Game: Irrational Acts, Tragic Consequences (Book III), brings the series to a close, revealing the secrets to most but not all of the mysteries surrounding these thrillers.
Dr. Cohen has been an investor for more than 50 years, and recently has focused on investigating and reporting on corruption in US financial institutions and agencies of the US government. His latest novel, Eighth Circle: A Special Place in Hell, brings back NYPD Homicide Detective Louis Martelli, the hero he introduced in Death by Wall Street: Rampage of the Bulls, and who later reprised his role in House of Cards: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Lilith: Demon of the Night, and Night Shadows. Dr. Cohen also authored the novel Full Circle: A Dream Denied, a Vision Fulfilled as well as more than 450 papers, columns, essays, and interviews for the popular, scientific, and technical literature.
