Code of Honor Book Review

Download PDF

Code of Honor is a fast-paced thriller about Kamran Smith, the star of the high-school football team, dates the most popular girl at school, and can’t wait to go to West Point like his big brother, Darius. Although Kamran’s mother is from Iran, Kamran has always felt 100% American. Accepted, then everything changes when Darius is accused of being a terrorist on national TV. Kamran refuses to believe it, but Darius has been filmed making threats against his country, hinting at an upcoming, deadly attack. Suddenly Kamran’s girlfriend dumps him, and everyone in his life turns against him and his family.
The book opens with a prologue, which starts in the middle of the action. Chapters 1 through 15 lead up to the action started in the prologue, and the next set of chapters picks up where the prologue left off.
It’s an interesting concept which I like.
The book paints a realistic scenario of having a family member be accused of being a terrorist.
There are a few surprises.
