Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A knock-out thriller, as smart and stylish as its charming protagonist, Carter Ross.” Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Touch and Go
“There is another story line involving gun smuggling that eventually intersects with the cop killing, making for a thoughtful look at gun laws in New Jersey…This is a tautly written page-turner with charm and humor, a terrific combination that is sure to appeal to David Rosenfelt and Janet Evanovich fans.” Booklist (starred review)
“Parks nails the newspaper milieu and the Newark setting, while his solid cast of characters should keep readers eagerly awaiting the next installment.” Publishers Weekly
“Parks’ award-winning series is essential reading. This fourth entry is a fine blend of suspense, bumbling-with-a-purpose detecting, and a chatty, humorous tone that the author makes seem effortless.” Library Journal
“Genial reporter Carter Ross, who never met a wisecrack he didn’t like, goes up against every police officer in Newark in defense of a dead cop’s good name…The combination of Borscht-Belt dialogue, ebullient first-person narration, and mean Jersey streets with lots of menace but very little mystery, makes Carter a strong contender for the title of best Stephanie Plum male impersonator.” Kirkus Reviews
