Reviews

"The grittiness of northern New Jersey, some of the realities of newspaper work, and the hard-boiled wit of Ross and others has been a winning formula. . . An excellent choice for [a reader] who enjoys a gritty mystery and a wry laugh." --Washington Independent Review of Books"With his third featuring brash, breezy, unflappable Carter, Parks propels himself to a niche shared by only a handful of others: writers who can manage the comedy-mystery." --Kirkus (One of Kirkus's Best Books of 2012)"Brad Parks spins a terrific yarn in The Girl Next Door. . .[he] not only intrigues the reader with his plot but also impeccably depicts newsrooms and their denizens. A combination of grit and wit, The Girl Next Door honors the mystery genre, a noble profession and--not least--its author." --Richmond Times-Dispatch"Brad Parks has crafted another complex and satisfying mystery, full of suspense and newsroom intrigue." --Newark Star-Ledger"Award-winning Parks's third Carter Ross mystery has all the elements for a fun escape read--to New Jersey. His chatty style, quick pace, and trademark team efforts make this series a refreshing tonic for the mystery soul." --Library Journal"Darkly humorous... Park hits home with this installment of quirky characters, convincing color, and a Sopranos-worthy ragout of high drama and low comedy." --Publishers Weekly
