The Good Cop

Book 4, Carter Ross Mysteries - A Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 07, 2013 – Near the start of Parks s satisfying fourth Carter Ross mystery (after 2012 s The Girl Next Door), the Newark (N.J.) Eagle-Examiner reporter interviews Noemi Kipps, the widow of 37-year-old Newark policeman Darius Kipps, whom Noemi portrays as a dedicated cop and family man. Only later does Carter learn the cause of death Darius committed suicide at the Fourth Precinct station. Noemi and celebrity minister Alvin LeRioux call for an independent investigation, but suddenly back off. As Carter tries to figure out if Darius was a good cop or a dirty one, a second cop s death raises more questions. Carter milks varied sources, including a couple of brothers who operate an unusual warehouse; he fobs off a gullible intern and editor s spy with an amusing prank; and he dodges inept gangbangers. Parks nails the newspaper milieu and the Newark setting, while his solid cast of characters should keep readers eagerly awaiting the next installment. Author tour.

Customer Reviews


Great read from Parks. I wish he wrote a book every month, but I guess that is too much to ask. Six months?

Great book

Not a huge reader but this is the best book I have read so far.
