Another Boston P.I., but you won't find this one huffing and puffing with the rest of the jog-along-the-St. Charles herd.
MATTHEW JACOB definitely has an unhealthy relationship with certain illegal or harmful substances, including but not limited to codeine, Valium, grass, beer, television and detective novels. Once an idealistic social worker, he now manages (barely) an apartment building belonging to his former father-in-Iaw, Lou. His duties rarely require him to do much more than some janitorial work, but that's okay. Matt says "cleaning makes (him) feel productive." He occasionally rouses himself out of his self-imposed lethargy to visit his shrink, Dr. James, or sometimes his dealer, who conveniently lives in an upstairs apartment.
On even more rare occasions, he reluctantly does a little private detective work, although he only got his license to do "occasional research for a friend.
A self-proclaimed "drugged-out Rockford:' whose one passion seems to be collecting old radios, Matt isn't isn't likely to be a spokesman for the Spenser generation any time in the near future. A true gumshoe for the nineties -- the slacker eye!
