Killed in the Ratings

(1979)
(The first book in the Matt Cobb series)
A novel by

 
An electrifying puzzle, corporate sleuth Matt Cobb is set up in a TV-world murder

This Edgar Award - winning debut novel introduces Matt Cobb, vice president of special projects at a large television network - where "special projects" means anything sensitive, or even fatal, that the company wants to keep quiet.

Cobb's no stranger to following mysterious orders, so when he receives a telephone call asking him to visit a hotel room he obliges. The invitation, however, means a dead body, a sharp blow to the head, and suspicion from the police that he committed the crime. And while one of the detectives put on the case has known Cobb since he was a child, the other is convinced of his guilt. Can Cobb stay on point when the stakes are so high? Can he find the real killer and persuade the police of his innocence? And what do television ratings have to do with it all?
