Thereâ€™s no such thing as bad press â€¦
Ex-cop turned private detective Mike Cobb is hired as the personal bodyguard of right-wing radio celebrity Buckley-Rand Larmer, who has been receiving a string of vicious, graphic threats. Once again, Cobb recruits crime journalist Adam Cullen, this time to dig into Larmerâ€™s past and find out who might have a grudge against him.
Soon it becomes evident that Cullen and Cobb have more to contend with than the not-so-veiled threats. When Larmerâ€™s associate turns up dead, the broadcaster is charged with the killing, but Cullen believes the murder might be related to a series of suspicious deaths of right-wing media figures going back years. As layers of secrets and lies peel back, Cullen and Cobb have more than Larmerâ€™s guilt or innocence to worry about. A vicious killer is out there somewhere, poised to strike again.
