"As long as Newark Eagle-Examiner reporter Carter Ross turns in his stories on deadline, no one bats an eye if he doesn't wander into the newsroom until 10 or 11 in the morning. So it's an unpleasant surprise when he's awakened at 8:38 a.m. by a phone call from his boss, telling him a local policeman was killed and to get the story. Shaking himself awake, Carter heads off to interview the cop's widow. And then he gets another call: the story's off, the cop committed suicide. But Carter can't understand why a man with a job he loved, a beautiful wife, and plans to take his adorable children to Disney World would suddenly kill himself. And when Carter's attempts to learn more are repeatedly blocked, it's clear someone knows more than he's saying about the cop's death. The question is, who? And what does he have to hide? Carter, with his usual single-minded devotion to a good story-and to the memory of a Newark policeman-will do whatever it takes to uncover the truth. In The Good Cop, Brad Parks is back with all the humor, charm, and human insight his readers have come to expect, and more. "

Professional reviews

"Happiness is a mystery writer with a wild sense of humor and a narrator who knows how to deliver it. This charming mystery delivers a surprise--and a good one at that. Narrator Adam Verner raises the bar even higher. His first-person chatty protagonist is glib and brisk. Newark reporter Carter Ross investigates the supposed suicide of a decorated cop and learns that much more is going on. In fact, the suicide might really have been murder, and the irrepressible Ross is determined to find out. Verner is at his finest when portraying the reporter, especially when he brings out Brad Parks's humor. Verner is also adept at switching from reporters' chatter to the voice of a deep-voiced, six-foot-eight African-American cop. The fourth in the Carter Ross series is a sleeper that listeners should not pass up. A.L.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
