Back Before DarkPraise for Code of Silence: 'Deliberate, plausible, and gritty whodunit.' --Booklist Starred Review Taken! 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.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. Again I didn't realize that this was a book 2 but I think I did pretty well even though I haven't read Code of Silence. So this one is about the same cast and crew from Code of Silence.  They ride their bikes through the park one day and see a van with a backpack on the roof. Well Gordy tries to get the drivers attention and is kidnapped by the man in the van.  Cooper calls 911 and isn't sure he remembered the right license plate.  I kinda give him credit of getting the plate number to begin with.  This book was great.  It was face paced as something is always happening. It has adventure, fear, and these kids are just so strong to find their friend when it seems that the police wont be able to.  Its an edge of your seat thrill ride that will keep you coming back for more. 

Suspense fiction for 8-13-year-old middle school readers.
