About the Author

BRAD PARKS is the first author to win both the Shamus Award and the Nero Award for Best American Mystery for his debut novel, Faces of the Gone. A former reporter for The Washington Post and The [Newark] Star-Ledger, he lives in Virginia, and The Girl Next Door is his third novel.


"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
