Publisher's Summary

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 by a phone call from his boss, telling him a local policeman was killed and Carter will be covering the story, starting immediately. He's baffled when, hours later, there are still no other reporters at the widow's house. And then he gets another call from his boss: the story's off, the cop committed suicide. But when Carter's calls to the police and the morgue are repeatedly blocked, it's clear someone knows more than he's saying about the cop's death.

    "WHERE IS MACLEOD ANDREWS?"
    Any additional comments?

    Go back to Macleod Andrews or lose me forever! Adam is ok, but Macleod has that grit in his voice that makes these books so exciting to listen. Adams voice gives you an entirely different picture of the reporter. Instead of the battered white knight, you get a cocky metrosexual. Not appealing to me. I had a tough time listening to the book as I no longer had any empathy for this main character. SO, I will now make sure to notice who is reading for me before I purchase, he makes all the difference for me.

    "WHERE IS MCLEOD ANDREWS??"

    Bring back Mr. Andrews!! The story was good but the performance was barely tolerable.
    Hopefully Mr. Parks will go back to having McLeod Andrews narrating his books.

    Story
    "Carter Ross has a pair for sure"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Previous Carte Ross tales were better, this was a generic version from the three titles that preceded it. Adam Verner although struggled to produce the voices of Tommy, or "T" that I was accustom, did do a decent job.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    In other Carter Ross stories the interns became such a part of the stories, in this installment the intern makes cameo's and although he is a big reason the story steered in the direction it did I really didn't feel attached to him like I did Sweet Thang, or Tommy.


    What does Adam Verner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Adam, wasn't terrible, but I was use to Macleod Andrews, and the characters he created, Adam didn't really keep that consistent, that said I think he was great.


    Do you think The Good Cop needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It could sequel off, because the investigation was left unclear, but I would leave it alone, not enough interest to go there.

    "Good book but narrator problems"

    Like the previous books in the Carter Ross series, I am enjoying this story. I am writing this a little before I am finished with in to vent. Who chose this narrator? Instead of sounding glib, sarcastic, and fun as well as intelligent and a good journalist; this narrator just sounds like a whiney complainer. I have to put the voice out of my head and concentrate totally on what is being said. Leave this narrator behind, and bring back the former narrator.

    "Great story, horrible narration"

    I will not be listening to the next book only because the narrator was so bad...no real emotion; felt like he was trying too hard to make "character" voices. It was a miserable experience.

    Story
    "Narrator"
    Would you try another book from Brad Parks and/or Adam Verner?

    Brad Parks yes Adam Verner no. Verner destroyed every single character in these books. His accents and the way he plays the characters is aggravatingly terrible. He changes the main character from a confident wise cracking guy to a little cry baby with no back bone. The homosexual Hispanic who was funny and lively becomes boring, and his accent sounds like your drunk friend pretending to be Hispanic but just sounds like himself drunk.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Plot yes. Narrator just made me angry the entire time.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He would be great for a book where there are no characters in it.


    What character would you cut from The Good Cop?

    If this narrator is doing the characters I would cut all of them. They all suck with this narrator. Id rather listen to 10 hours of this narrator humming than hear him read this series.


    Any additional comments?

    Bring back the previous narrator. He was fantastic. If these narrators were superheros the last narrator is superman, this narrator is a dolphin Aquaman rides.
