Code of Courage by Janice Cantore

 

Detective Danni Grace has never met a police officer who wants to face a scenario where pulling the trigger on another person is the only option. When the worst does occur and there’s a police-involved shooting, it leads to riots and calls to disband the entire police force in La Rosa, Danni’s hometown.

After fifteen years on the force, Danni has had enough. Injured in the line of duty when a protester throws a chunk of concrete at her and shaken by the vitriol being shown to the police, Danni realizes for the first time that she’s lost her passion for the job.

While she’s on a leave of absence, though, a community activist in La Rosa is shot and a fellow officer is blamed for his murder. Taking on this case means stepping back into a job Danni’s not sure she can do anymore . . . and working closely with her ex-husband, Gabriel Fox, an investigator for the city prosecutor’s office. Danni will need to tap into her code of courage to uncover the truth, prevent another injustice, and uphold her oath to serve and protect.

My Review


 
This story starts and ends with so much action, and I felt like I was reading today's paper, or watching the news on TV.

Corruption all the way to the top, and these character's are caught in the injustice that is be perpetrated by the evil that seems to be in control. A hopeless situation? There are people here of great faith, and wear it on there sleeves, and we are with them as they go above and beyond. How much easier it would be to just throw in the towel.

This is a read that will have you page turning and wondering how it will all end. A suburb of Los Angeles, La Rosa, CA, and the rallying cry of "Get Rid Of The Police". Yes, we wonder how this is all going to end, and the author does a great job of bringing this read to a conclusion!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Tyndale House, and was not required to give a positive review.
