Cold Case Closure by Patrick Ian O’Donnell and Charles O. Gaylor is touted as a police procedural novel, and deals with a number of fictional cold murder cases. It is a standalone novel and falls into the general fiction/detective thriller category. Grant Frazier is a retired Cold Case Crime Taskforce member, as well as having previously worked for the LAPD. During his time in law enforcement he has seen far too many people get away with murder due to lack of evidence or credible witnesses. With the death of his wife, and the fact that he is no longer active in law enforcement, Grant goes off to mete out his own brand of justice to the cases he feels most aggrieved about not having been solved.

He starts crying and screams at Agent Cooper and the forensic analysist Albert Rosenfield that he does not like how they “talk smart about Sheriff Truman or anybody! You just shut your mouth!”.

These films are: - Psycho (1960) - Man Bites Dog (1992) - American Psycho (2000) - and Gone Girl (2014) Psycho, Man Bites Dog, American Psycho and Gone Girl are all considered Psychological thrillers.
