Cooper’s Promise

Author: Timothy Jay Smith

A gay U.S. Army sharpshooter/Iraqi War deserter walks into a bar in Africa, and so begins the knowing, gritty, redemptive character study of Cooper Chance, a flawed protagonist who’s suggestive of Humphrey Bogart’s best movie roles. As the Paris-based expatriate author moves Chance through human trafficking and a grisly civil war adventure, the most compelling story is the hero’s tentative romance with a doomed young Lebanese man who sells blood diamonds. iUniverse ( —Review: Donalevan Maines
