Publisher's Summary

When he hears residents of a Newark neighborhood are getting sick - and even dying - from a strange disease, investigative reporter Carter Ross dives into the story - so deep he comes down with the illness himself. With even more motivation to track down the source of the disease, Carter soon hits upon a nearby construction site.
But when the project's developer is found dead, and his mob ties surface, Carter knows he's looking at a story much bigger - and with even more dangerous consequences - than an environmental hazard. Back in the newsroom, Carter has his hands full with his current girlfriend and with the paper's newest eager intern, not to mention his boss and former girlfriend Tina Thompson, who has some news for Carter that's about to make tangling with the mob seem simple by comparison.

Think Erin Brockovich...

Another excellent book on the Carter Ross series. People are getting sick, some are dying. New construction over an old factory that produced toxic byproducts. The city is paying for a cleanup of the area. Leave it to Ross to uncover what's going on but while doing so everyone associated with him is in danger.
Adam Verner does a very good job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I should have read Book 5 before Book 6!

The lesson I learned here is that it is usually best to read "standalone" novels in a series in order. The publisher's summary tells plenty about the plot. The Player is Book 5 in the six novel in the Newark based newspaper investigative reporter Carter Ross series. It is an outstanding suspense mystery novel with superb narration. There are interesting and unexpected twists in the final two hours of The Player. Also, there is a funny incident at the end.
