Publisher's Summary

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 by a phone call from his boss, telling him a local policeman was killed and Carter will be covering the story, starting immediately. He's baffled when, hours later, there are still no other reporters at the widow's house. And then he gets another call from his boss: the story's off, the cop committed suicide. But when Carter's calls to the police and the morgue are repeatedly blocked, it's clear someone knows more than he's saying about the cop's death.

Who'd believe there's corruption in Newark!!!

Another excellent procedural/investigative journalist book. This is one convoluted story that leaves you wondering just who is the good guy and who is bad until almost the end of the book.
This starts out with a cops murder, no suicide, no it's a murder... Oh, you'll just have to listen to it to find out.
Brad Parks writes fleshed out, believable characters. His books are full of false clues and keep you guessing right up to the end. I am really enjoying this series.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Excellent newspaper reporter Carter Ross novel!

First, I do not understand the reviewers' complaints about narration. Adam Verner is as excellent as McLeod Andrews. The Good Cop is Book 4 in the six novel Newark newspaper reporter Carter Ross series by Brad Parks. The plot is about police corruption including illegal gun sales and murder. The novel is a very good suspense mystery.
