Praise for Code of Silence: 'Deliberate, plausible, and gritty whodunit.' --Booklist Starred Review


A detour through the park leads Cooper, Gordy, Hiro, and Lunk straight into a trap, and Gordy is abducted! For the kidnapper, it's all a game, a way to settle an old score, with no one getting hurt. But evil has a way of escalating, and once his identity is discovered, the rules change. Despite the best of police efforts, the hours tick by without a clue or a ransom call, leaving everyone to their own fears. Gordy is gone. Cooper descends deeper into a living nightmare, imagining the worst for his best friend and cousin. Hours stretch into days, and talks of a memorial service begin to surface. But Cooper still feels his cousin is alive and develops a reckless plan, changing all the rules. Now the one who set out to rescue his friend needs to be rescued himself. Sometimes rescuing a friend from darkness means going in after them. 


Back Before Dark is exactly the kind of a book an adolescent would want to read. With the thrill of a mystery game a criminal plays, nothing comes as expected. This young readers book will have anyone anxious to turn the page.

In this exciting thriller Back Before Dark, there is a group of four friends that never thought such a big turnout would happen to them. On their way home from a trip to the store there is a strange occurrence. A minivan with a bag on the roof drives away. Being good kids one of them, Gordy, decides to chase the car down to help the driver. The rest, Hiro, Cooper, and Lunk get the strange feeling something is very wrong... Just then Gordy is being kidnapped and their world changes. It seems no one is doing anything to help find their beloved friend and cousin. Their parents are expecting the worst and the friends are going on their own mission to find their friend. Will they find him? Will anyone else be taken?

Tim Shoemaker is an exceptional writer. Capturing the mind and entertaining it with such events keeps the reader anxious to see what will happen next. I recommend reading Back Before Dark with two thumbs up. It's an exceptional book with a twist.
