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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A knock-out thriller, as smart and stylish as its charming protagonist, Carter Ross.”

    Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Touch and Go

  • “There is another story line involving gun smuggling that eventually intersects with the cop killing, making for a thoughtful look at gun laws in New Jersey…This is a tautly written page-turner with charm and humor, a terrific combination that is sure to appeal to David Rosenfelt and Janet Evanovich fans.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Parks nails the newspaper milieu and the Newark setting, while his solid cast of characters should keep readers eagerly awaiting the next installment.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Parks’ award-winning series is essential reading. This fourth entry is a fine blend of suspense, bumbling-with-a-purpose detecting, and a chatty, humorous tone that the author makes seem effortless.”

    Library Journal

  • “Genial reporter Carter Ross, who never met a wisecrack he didn’t like, goes up against every police officer in Newark in defense of a dead cop’s good name…The combination of Borscht-Belt dialogue, ebullient first-person narration, and mean Jersey streets with lots of menace but very little mystery, makes Carter a strong contender for the title of best Stephanie Plum male impersonator.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • Winner of the Shamus Award in 2014 for Best Hardcover P.I. Novel
