Cathy Perkin's Honor Code is a tense police procedural whose hero is a taunt mix of weariness and optimism. The book begins with the kidnapping of the old man and as the mystery unravels the layered strands of family disfunction, fading communities and fractured marriages reveal a cop whose seen it all but still strives to make a difference. The crime and its solution are riveting, but not as compelling as the detective at the center of book. - Beachside Reviews
The opening scene is powerful in its imagery and emotion... the secondary characters added layers to the story that made me forget I was reading a novella - Renee Rearden
