Snappy humor, spunky spelunking, and special writingI recommend this book to mystery readers who delight in having some fun in what they are reading. This is the first time I have read a book by DeAndrea and I look forward to reading more by this author. Special note, if you love the English-language you will find the comments Matt mutters to himself the cherry on top of your reading pleasure.

This is an older book that I picked up on Kindle and really enjoyed. Matt Cobb works as a trouble shooter for a major television network in NYC.He gets involved in an extremely convoluted case that could seriously damage the network There are more in this series and I shal definitely search them out.
Interesting, quick read about the television industry involving murder and intrigue with the smart aleck Cobb working to get to the bottom of it all. I especially enjoyed the quotes from old TV shows at the beginning of each chapter.
Early Bird Books-I Book-$1.99 Cobb is a little like Archie in the Nero Wolfe books. I would recommend this book to readers who like mysteries. 3 1/2 stars
