Summary from Goodreads:

During a deadly hostage standoff, Chicago police officer Larry Parker witnesses a heroic act by a mysterious intervener. But when the Samaritan disappears, Larry is left only with unanswered questions. Suddenly vigilante activity begins popping up all over the city. Larry finds evidence pointing to the Samaritan, and discovers his identity – a loner known only by the name Rage. But Rage has also drawn the attention of a covert Black Ops division within the Pentagon itself. Seen as a liability to their secret operation, Larry finds himself in the crosshairs as well, and must find answers while on the run. The deadly chase leads cross-country to a top-secret military facility in Virginia, where Rage and Larry uncover the greatest danger of all -- and only they can stop the unthinkable from happening.

Review By Alaiel Kreuz:

Believe it or not I only got the chance to start reading this book yesterday morning and I just finished it. My verdict: A great addition to my sci-fi collection.

We are set with Larry, a Chicago police officer that seeks answers after seeing a man doing an incredible heroic performance. Who is this guy? How and why did he do it?! After a short while other mysterious activities begin to happen and he only finds one answer to his questions: the identity of the heroic guy. His name is Rage and thanks to him his life is about to go upside down.

I'm afraid I can't really say anything more about the book without spoiling things. What I can do is tell you that the twists are 100% originals, the parts where the main characters have to run away and are chase were incredibly amazing... just so you can picture it: I was reading the book lying in my bed and when I was reading these parts I HAD to sit down. Rage's identity is one of those things that leaves your mouth hanging open for a long while and the ending is just superb.

It's been a long time since I read a sci-fi book, so when I begun Code of Darkness I was prepared to be, I'm not sure, enthralled. But it was way more than that, I was captivated and thrown into an action movie. I just love when books make me imagine a complete series of movie sequences, it makes my imagination work a lot which I simply enjoy.

  6. Great book! I enjoyed being part of the tour!

  7. To me the biggest joy when reading a book is to see the action unfold in my mind like a movie. I just reviewed a shorty that had the exact same effect on me.
    I haven't read much sci-fi, but this seems like a good "place" to start. Especially with you pointing out the "WOW" revealation part abt Rage's identity.
    _yay_ @ BookthatThing!


Something to share? (cheese would be awesome!) I love to read your comments :]
