Killed in the Fog, by William DeAndrea
Killed in the Fog
By William DeAndrea
After seeing some favorable reviews of the late William DeAndrea's books on various other mystery sites I decided to give one a try. One of my barometers for what I thought of a book is whether I'd read another title by that author. In the case of DeAndrea, I'd say probably not.
Which is not to say that there was anything wrong with Killed in the Fog, because there wasn't. I guess I'd just have to say that it although it was quite well done and moved along at a good pace it just wasn't my sort of thing.
Apparently number eight in a series of books that featured TV executive and amateur detective Matt Cobb, this one finds Cobb relocating to London and getting tangled up in a mess that involves visa (not the credit card) scams and a couple of murders. Well done, but just not my cup of tea.
