"Code of Silence" by Tim Shoemaker - A Book Review


    When Cooper, Hiro, and Gordy witness a robbery that leaves a man in a coma, they find themselves tangled in a web of mystery and deceit that threatens their lives. After being seen by the criminals - who may also be cops - Cooper makes everyone promise never to reveal what they have seen. Telling the truth could kill them, but remaining silent means an innocent man takes the fall and a friend never receives justice. Is there ever a time to lie? And what happens when the truth is dangerous? The three friends trapped in a code of silence, must face the consequences of choosing right or wrong when both options have their price.

    From the first page, I was caught up in the action, mystery, intrigue and suspense that lined the pages of this wonderful book. Not only is the cover awesome, the story itself is incredible. Code of Silence is itself a lesson on situation-al ethics. It asks the question that all of us have probably asked ourselves: "Is it okay to lie when the truth could have disastrous consequences?" This book answers that question.
    Not only are the characters unique and realistic, they're also relate-able. You can't help but view the sides that each character takes. This book takes you on an emotional journey like none other that I've read. There are ups and downs, happy and sad moments, fearful and lighthearted ones.
    There was no language whatsoever. Graphics - the owner of Frank 'n Stein's is beaten severely and left in a coma, presumed dead. Inappropriate content - none.
    I commend Mr. Shoemaker on creating a story that I could not put down and I can't wait to read more of his work! I recommend this book to... well, anyone!

5 of 5 stars

God bless,
