Code of Valor by Lynette Eason

Code of Valor is the third book in the Blue Justice series, but it could easily be a standalone book. This installment in the thrilling series focuses on financial crimes investigator Emily Chastain. When Emily is kidnapped and almost killed, Detective Brady St. John steps in to save the day. But saving Emily may be more than Brady can handle because her problems are deeper than what can be seen on the surface.

Code of Valor is at level ten from page one. This book is filled with thrills, mystery, and mayhem.  At times, the drama and action seem overwhelming and my reaction was inconsistent. I prefer a slow build up when reading a thriller, and this one stayed on the extreme level a little bit too much for my tastes. I also found the conclusion to be too confusing. There were too many "bad guys" and the overall ending wasn't memorable. Some readers may also be disturbed by the graphic content in this book. There are many murders throughout with detailed information. However, there is an important lesson to be learned behind the chaos of this story and Emily's character is a light in the darkness. She does something at the end of the story that seals my admiration for her. I won't give that part away, but it was the highlight of this book to me. Thank you to Revell for giving me the chance to read and review this book! These opinions are all my own.
