David A. Poulsen has visited Reading Recommendations many times over the years, and I’m always happy to host him here again whenever he is publishing a new book.
(After all, I’ve known Dave for nearly 25 years, since I was a sales rep for his novel,
Don’t Fence Me In!)
He’s back now to tell us about the second novel in his Cullen and Cobb Mystery series.
Dead Air: A Cullen and Cobb Mystery
by David A. Poulsen
Published by Dundurn Press
There’s no such thing as bad press …
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 Larmer’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 Larmer’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 Larmer’s guilt or innocence to worry about. A vicious killer is out there somewhere, poised to strike again.
