"The Girl Next Door" by Brad Parks, I love, love, the book and the series!
I just knew twelve pages into "The Girl Next Door" that it was my kind of mystery, it was the humor that got me.
I immediately stopped reading it, got online & ordered the first two in the series "Faces of the Gone" and "Eyes of the Innocent" because
there was no way I was going to start reading this great new series starting with the third book as I must read them all in order!
The wait for the first two books in the mail was agonizing....as soon as they arrived I read all three in a row for three days straight only
coming up for air to laugh out loud and occasionally feed my "Deadline like" cat Rocky.
Carter Ross, investigative reporter for the Newark Eagle-Examiner Newspaper and his hilarious and often inept office interns, colleagues,
various bosses and friends compliment him in his quest to fight the wrongs he stumbles into in his world as does his wonderfully played sleep all day cat the deliciously deadpan Deadline.
The cast of characters in the world of the "Bird Man" is wonderful; sexy but unavailable Tina, grouchy word garbling Sal, Tommy the Cuba
n wisecracking dandy, Sweet Thang, fearful of his wife dread locked Tee and lordy, lordy do not forget the literary Lunky!!!
I am a mystery book gal with a stressful job and this is a fabulous addition to my must read list. I do however have one complaint....
how long must I have to wait for the next Brad Parks book!???! l
