Suspense and Mystery with Code Runner!



Book Two of The Amy Lane Mysteries 

Ex-con Jason Carr has faced down the toughest thugs in Cardiff, but being assistant to a brilliant, eccentric hacker who hasn’t been outdoors in ten years has its own challenges. Still, he and Amy Lane can solve cases even the cops can’t crack. And when a corpse washes up on a beach, Jason can’t resist chasing the clues—or defying Amy by infiltrating the very gangs he once escaped. Amy is distraught when Jason’s pursuit gets him framed for murder. He’s thrown back in prison where he’s vulnerable to people who want him dead. He needs Amy to prove his innocence. Fast. But Amy hasn’t been honest with him—her panic attacks aren’t getting better. And now, with everything that makes her feel safe ripped away, she must stand alone, using her technological skills to expose a baffling conspiracy and a new kind of online crime. Can she clear Jason’s name before danger closes in? Carina Press | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Google Play | iBooks | Kobo  

My Review:

I love computers, hacking, and mysteries, so the premise of this book really intrigued me! This book started off interesting from the first chapter and the action continues all throughout the rest of the book. While there are a number of characters, each with his own story, Ms. Claverton keeps everyone separate and distinct. I have not read the first book in the series, but Code Runner was easy to get into without needing any background.

The book is set in the United Kingdom, and it was very interesting reading about another country, complete with its own landscape, expressions, and culture. I haven't read many contemporary books set in the UK, so this was refreshing. I really liked the characters of both Amy and Jason and the way they worked together. They make a great team, and it was very interesting to be "let in" on their partnership.

The chapters are short, so it is easy to put down and pick back up without stopping in the middle of a chapter. One downside is the amount of profanity in the book. It did keep me from enjoying the read thoroughly, and I wish it had not been included. Other than that, I enjoyed the action and the mystery of Code Runner!
