The Good Cop, by Brad Parks
I read this book over a couple of weeks when I was busy and distracted, and yet I was always able to keep track of what was going on and ultimately enjoyed the story. Carter Ross, investigative reporter for the Newark Eagle-Examiner, backs into a story about a dead police officer and gets a very different picture from the family than is later released by the police department. Figuring out what really happened requires Ross to call upon an increasingly wide network of resources throughout the community.
