As he uncovers clues about Beason’s deceased wife and his estranged daughter, Robbins must untangle conflicting motives and hidden agendas to bring Beason home alive.

From award-winning author Cathy Perkins comes a mystery novella related to her recent release, THE PROFESSOR.

HONOR CODE  is available from Amazon.


“Honor Code is another multi-layered and intricately plotted story by Cathy Perkins that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a good mystery. ”

“Very well developed characters, easy read, and kept my interest.”

“The timeless descriptions began with the first paragraph and continued throughout the story. … the reader not only follows the manhunt, but also the struggles of the detective in his private life. I also enjoyed the southern backdrop of her story that can only be told by a person who lived there.
