The Girl Next Door: A Mystery (Carter Ross Mysteries) by Brad Parks

Reading his own papers obituaries, Carter Ross comes across a woman named Nancy Marino who died in a hit-and-run while she was actually 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. But its the last place Carter expects to find controversy-which he does when one of Nancys sisters convinces him the accident might not have been an accident at all. Turns out the kind and generous Nancy may have made a few enemies after all, starting with her boss at a diner where she was a part-time waitress and even including the publisher of the Eagle-Examiner. Carters investigation of this seemingly simple story soon has him in big trouble with his fulltime editor and sometime girlfriend, Tina Thompson, and the rest of the bosses at the paper, but he cant let it go-the story might be too good. But will his nose for trouble finally take him too far? Brad Parks smart-mouthed, quick-witted reporter returns in this action-packed entry in an award-winning series set in Newark and written with an unforgettable mix of humor and suspense.
