Kurzbeschreibung

In a small southern town where everyone normally knows each other’s business, veteran detective Larry Robbins must solve the disappearance of eighty-year-old widower, African-American George Beason.

When evidence arises that Beason may have left town on his own, it would be easy for Robbins to close the case, but his gut instinct tells him more’s at stake. As he uncovers clues about Beason’s deceased wife and his estranged daughter, Robbins must untangle conflicting motives and hidden agendas to bring Beason home alive.

With HONOR CODE, Cathy Perkins delivers a mystery NOVELLA linked to her award-winning mystery novel, THE PROFESSOR.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Honor Code 13. Dezember 2012
Von K. Branfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Honor Code by Cathy Perkins is a fast-paced and intriguing mystery. Although George Beason is not officially a "high risk" disappearance, Detective Larry Robbins' instincts are telling him to give this case a closer look. His investigation is full of unexpected twists and turns and raises some very puzzling questions.

Honor Code might be a novella, but Ms. Perkins does an excellent job with character and plot development. Larry Robbins is a little jaded and cynical after so many years on the job, but he has well honed instincts and a genuine concern for George Beason's whereabouts. His investigation proves to be quite illuminating for Larry in both his professional and personal lives. As the case unfolds he learns some surprising information about his new and much younger partner Jerry Jordan. The details surrounding George's late wife's death causes Larry to reflect on his relationship with his wife Sharon. His introspection is insightful and provides his character with added depth.

Larry's investigation into George's disappearance is quite interesting and meticulously detailed. While Larry uncovers several potential motives and suspects that fit in with his kidnapping theory, he cannot quite rule out the possibility that George left of his own accord. The case takes a fascinating turn and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the pieces of the puzzle fall neatly into place.

Honor Code is another multi-layered and intricately plotted story by Cathy Perkins that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.

I received a complementary copy for review.

This police procedural isn't the longest story but it's really well written and a good introduction to the author's style. Definitely recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Far better than your average romantic thriller novella 18. Dezember 2012
Von Ruth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderful novella (which I received from the author in return only for a fair review), which seems to fill the word count much too quickly. I really enjoyed The Professor, and this one uses one of the secondary characters from that book, and writes an interesting, clever little mystery around one of his cases.

The writing is simple, but flows really nicely, but what I particularly enjoy (and enjoyed about The Professor as well), is how well we get to know the main protagonist. We get to see and hear his thought processes and his emotions, and also get an intriguing glimpse into his agonies. It's all extremely human, and the whole book is shot through with an underlying sadness and futility, while not hitting you in the face with it.

I can't wait for the next book by this author.

4 stars. I really liked it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fast-Paced, Entertaining Read 7. Dezember 2012
Von Greta Gunselman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book. I haven't read many mysteries in the last few years because they are either too dry or too easy to figure out. This one was neither of these things. I really enjoyed the characters, and I was guessing who was behind it up until the very end. If you're looking for a good mystery to curl up with on a Sunday afternoon, this is your book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fast Paced Mystery With A Twist 3. Dezember 2013
Von Must Love Books - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The novel starts with an old man facing an assailant who uses a baseball bat to kill his dog.

Then a police detective is called when the old man is reported missing by a neighbor. At first glance it would seem George Beason has gone off in his gold Cadillac for a visit with relatives. But neighbours who know him insist he wouldn't have left this way. And when Detective Robbin's has a chance to look inside his house it's obvious it's been tossed. Finding the dog he takes it to a vet who confirms the dog was killed by blunt force trauma.

As the case continues the cracks in George Beason's family lead to a daughter who believes her dad killed her mother and the grandson who died in the service of his country may have been involved in a theft while oversees. And as Detective Robbins searches for answers he begins to look at his own life more closely and make some changes.

This is a novella you can read in an hour and enjoy but the twists and turns will leave you guessing until the end and may have you asking questions of your own life.
