Reviews

"Brad Parks [has] delivered a first-rate crime thriller...."Faces of the Gone" is gritty and hard boiled, but with a sly sense of humor. This strong and confident debut is sure to make an appearance on many 'best of' and awards lists. Parks is a bright new talent whom readers will hopefully be able to enjoy for years to come."--David J. Montgomery, "Chicago Sun-Times"
"[A] commanding, entertaining debut..."Faces of the Gone" skillfully mixes a gritty hard-boiled mystery with swatches of broad humor that perfectly captures the newsroom culture....Parks' "Faces of the Gone" ranks with Michael Connelly's "The Scarecrow" in its depiction of the newspaper industry. Parks, a former reporter at the "Star-Ledger" in Newark, shows he's made the transition to becoming a novelist with this impressive debut."--Oline H. Cogdill, "South Florida"" Sun-Sentinel" "This is the most hilariously funny and deadly serious mystery debut since Janet Evanovich's "One for the Money." Former journalist Parks has learned the art of making words flow and dialog zing. Fans of the NFL's Cleveland Browns will find the Brick City Browns street gang an added delight."--"Library Journal" (starred review) "The story and characters make "Faces of the G"one a success; the plot plays out with twists, and the characters are drawn with realism. Parks has begun his projected series with a bang."--"Richmond Times-Dispatch" "This terrific page-turning debut features a likeable protagonist, engaging supporting characters and some witty and amusing dialogue. Readers will want to see where this compelling tale takes them."--"RT Book Reviews" (4 stars)"" "Parks' writing is graceful and often gripping, and he creates a handful of vivid characters, both journalists and their sources. His portraits of the city and its drug trade, the newspaper, and Carter's journalistic techniques all sound knowing....this could develop into a solid series."--"Booklist"
