Paperback (January 2013)
Reading his own newspaperâ€™s obituaries, veteran reporter
Carter Ross comes across that of a woman named Nancy Marino,
who was the victim of a hit-and-run while she was on the job
delivering copies of that very paper, the Eagle-Examiner.
Struck by the opportunity to write a heroic piece about an
everyday woman killed too young, he heads to her wake to
gather tributes and anecdotes. Itâ€™s the last place Ross
expects to find controversyâ€”which is exactly what happens
when one of Nancyâ€™s sisters convinces him that the accident
might not have been accidental at all.
It turns out that the kind and generous Nancy may have made
a few enemies, starting with her boss at the diner where she
was a part-time waitress, and even including the publisher
of the Eagle-Examiner. Carterâ€™s investigation of this
seemingly simple story soon has him in big trouble with his
full-time editor and sometime girlfriend, Tina Thompson, not
to mention the rest of his bosses at the paper, but he canâ€™t
let it goâ€”the story is just too good, and it keeps getting
better. But will his nose for trouble finally take him too far?
Brad Parksâ€™s smart-mouthed, quick-witted reporter returns in
The Girl Next Doorâ€”another action-packed entry in his
award-winning series, written with an unforgettable mix of
humor and suspense.
