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.

Newbie to the book listening game. Photojournalist for a local TV Station in New Jersey. Enjoy history, Mysteries & Thrillers.
Yes, I enjoy the Carter Ross stories, I have listened to them all and sadly will miss them I await the next story. I hope Mr. Parks is writing as I type this.
No specific character stood out.
Although I felt that it wasn't up to par with Parks' previous books, I would recommend that Carter Ross fans listen to The Player. It started out with a good story line and then abruptly dropped it for another. I wish he would have woven the two together throughout the book. I listened to the entire book because I really like the Carter Ross character. Worth a listen, especially if you have read his other books. The characters develop and new things are always happening among them.
Of course! I love the Carter Ross character. And want to hear how he and Tina's relationship evolves.
Looking forward to Parks' next Carter Ross adventure.
