About the Author

BRAD PARKS is the only author to have won the Shamus, Nero and Lefty Awards. A former reporter for The Washington Post and The (Newark N.J.) Star-Ledger, The Fraud is his sixth novel. He lives in Virginia with his wife and two small children.


"A fast-paced, often-funny read, and details about Newark and the decline of traditional newspapers add gritty realism." --Publishers Weekly"Less funny and more deeply felt than Carter's first five cases: reliable entertainment that'll make you think twice about your next trip to Newark." --Kirkus Reviews"[The Player] is both an exciting look at how a reporter can challenge big-city crime and an often hilarious account of the complexities of one young man's romantic life...A highly entertaining tale and one of the best portraits of a working reporter since Connelly's Jack McEvoy." --The Washington Post"[Parks] offers another page turner, one that accurately portrays today's scaled-back (some would say decimated) newsrooms and pays homage to those working in a noble profession despite reduced circumstances. And while he spins a serious yarn, he injects enough humor that generates grins. But remember: Grins expose teeth, and The Player delivers a bone-crunching bite." --The Richmond Times-Dispatch
