Author Brad Parks was a reporter for The Washington Post and The Star-Ledger (Newark, NJ), so when he writes a mystery novel about an investigative reporter in New Jersey, he knows what he's talking about. Parks' second novel, Eyes of the Innocent, follows journalist Carter Ross as he investigates a suspicious fire that killed two young boys. With the assistance of a smart and sexy female intern, he works to get to the bottom of the story, even if it means putting his own life in danger. Eyes of the Innocent has interesting characters, suspense, sexual tension, even a little humor -- everything you want in a good mystery. It's not to be missed.
