About the Book
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.
In My Opinion
Code of Courage by Janice Cantore could take place in any city today. This book has suspense, but it’s really about the minds and hearts of law enforcement who truly have a desire to serve and protect people.
As a previous police office, Cantore’s knowledge of police procedure is well-documented in this book. She also gives readers a healthy dose of personal lives in Danni and Gabe—including their regrets, challenges, and disappointments.
From the opening pages, you know that this book is going to be intense. Cantore doesn’t play down the violence but doesn’t go into graphic detail as she effortly weaves together Danni’s current investigation with Gabe’s cold case.
I always enjoy reading Cantore’s books, and Code of Courage is another winner.
