Brad Parks - The Player (Carter Ross Mystery #5) WhenTue, March 11, 7pm – 8pm
DescriptionOne of our favorite authors, Brad Parks visits us to talk about the fifth (already? how did that happen?!) installment of his mystery series featuring Carter Ross.
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.
BRAD PARKS is the only author to have won the Shamus, Nero and Lefty Awards, three of crime fiction's most prestigious prizes. A former reporter for "The Washington Post" and "The" (Newark, N.J.) "Star-Ledger," "The Player" is his fifth novel.more details» copy to my calendar» (MDGentleReader)… (més)
Brad Parks - Montclair Public Library with the Authors Discussion Series
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 a.m. by a phone call from his boss, telling him a local policeman was killed and to get the story. Shaking himself awake, Carter heads off to interview the cop’s widow. And then he gets another call: the story’s off, the cop committed suicide. But Carter can’t understand why a man with a job he loved, a beautiful wife, and plans to take his adorable children to Disney World would suddenly kill himself. And when Carter’s attempts to learn more are repeatedly blocked, it's clear someone knows more than he's saying about the cop's death. The question is, who? And what does he have to hide? Carter, with his usual single-minded devotion to a good story—and to the memory of a Newark policeman—will do whatever it takes to uncover the truth. 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 this is his fourth novel.

Brad Parks Talks About The Girl Next Door: A Mystery
"I LOVE working with Brad Parks. I'll tell you a secret: I'm a bookseller who doesn't like readings. Oh, don't get me wrong...I adore seeing authors talk about their books and answer questions, but let's face it, reading out loud is a different skill set from writing. And a lot of readings can be big snoozefests.
With Brad, it's like being inside the book. He's also and actor, you see.
That's why I'm going all the way to Mechanicsville to do this gig. I'm a fan. Take a little road trip and join me, won't you?"
-Kelly Justice, owner of Fountain
Brad Parks' debut, Faces of the Gone, won the Nero Award for Best American Mystery and the Shamus Award for Best First Mystery. In doing so, Parks became the first author in the combined 60-year history of the Nero and the Shamus to win both awards for the same book. (woot!)
