Matt Cobb goes to bat for a friend accused of murder
Matt Cobb, an executive who is tasked with smoothing over sensitive situations for a major television network, is used to looking disaster in the eye. But while traveling upstate to look into rising corruption in the sale of cable broadcasting licenses, and mixing with some old college friends, he doesn’t expect murder rears its ugly head. Cobb’s former roommate, Dan Morris, is still pining over his ex-girlfriend Debbie Whitten, who’s about to marry another man. But on the night before her wedding, Debbie is killed with a crushing karate blow to her throat, and Dan is accused of murder. Cobb has to prove his friend’s innocence—no mean feat given that Morris was a martial arts expert and publicly vowed to put a stop to the marriage—and also that a shady DA has an agenda in locking him up. Meanwhile, the cable corruption issue won’t die down, and Cobb becomes the target of a goon dubbed “The Organic Hit Man,” who kills with whatever’s handy.
