Telling the Truth Could Get Them Killed. Remaining Silent Could Be Worse. When Cooper, Hiro, and Gordy witness a robbery that leaves a man in a coma, they find themselves tangled in a web of mystery and deceit that threatens their lives. After being seen by the criminals—who may also be cops—Cooper makes everyone promise never to reveal what they have seen. Telling the truth could kill them. But remaining silent means an innocent man takes the fall, and a friend never receives justice. Is there ever a time to lie? And what happens when the truth is dangerous? The three friends, trapped in a code of silence, must face the consequences of choosing right or wrong when both options have their price.
Dangerous and feared. Those words describe my future husband. Who just so happens to also be my ex-boyfriend. It's complicated. Two years ago, he broke my heart when he left me to do his father's bidding. After months of crying, I finally accepted he was gone and wasn't going to look back. That maybe he'd never loved me at all. I never wanted to see Luca again. Now a cruel twist of fate has signed me over to him in a heartless deal. I'm his. He thinks he did me a favor, but I feel like I've been given a death sentence. He doesn't want to get married because he still loves me. No, he did it for money. More power. I'm going to be a mafia wife. And there's only one way out of it. Death. But as it turns out, someone else doesn't want me to marry the ruthless Luca Bianchi. And if he has his way, I'll see that early grave.Due to mature content and themes this book is recommended for readers aged eighteen and over. Code of Silence is an arranged marriage and a complete standalone. This novel may contain triggers.
'Wherever there is power and money, there is always the risk of corruption. But everyone has a choice: to become involved or to take a stand against it.' Colin Dillon is an extraordinary man. He was the first Indigenous policeman in Australia. But that is actually a very small part of his story. He was also the first serving police officer to voluntarily appear before the Fitzgerald Commission of Inquiry in 1987 and give first-hand evidence of police corruption. He did this at a time when the Fitzgerald Inquiry was beginning and struggling for traction. His evidence at the Inquiry was instrumental in eventually sending some police, including Police Commissioner Terry Lewis, and politicians to prison. Revealing, powerful and uncompromising, this is the story of Colin Dillon's nearly 40 years in a police force rotten to the core. It describes the extraordinary range of criminal activities - drugs, gaming, SP bookmaking, brothels, vehicle theft - that were allowed to operate with impunity in return for bribes. It also tells of the high price an honest man and his family paid for his decision to break the code of silence.
Book Breaking the Code of Silence: Description/Summary:
This book shines a light on the fear and mental health concerns that exist not only in underserved communities but also within the law enforcement profession. Through a series of flashbacks, personal stories, and historical connections, Breaking the Code of Silence, serves as a dialogue-starter than can create greater understandings as to why and how healing and bridge building can take place.
Too many good cops have learned, through the Code of Silence, to tolerate bad cops and too many bad apples have escaped consequences as a result. This is a nationwide problem that is undermining the quality and legitimacy of good police work. Most cops don't start their careers believing the ends justify the means, so how did they get that way? We all make mistakes, and somewhere, sometime, we all "walk with the Devil."

Game warden Seeley Houk's mutilated body is found floating in the Mahoning River and rookie Pinkerton detective Dominick Prugitore intends to apprehend the culprits who murdered his friend. But first he must infiltrate an Italian community perched on the bluffs above the Mahoning River between New Castle and Youngstown, Ohio. This ramshackle collection of immigrant shantytowns provides cheap labor for quarries mining limestone for the steel mills in nearby Pittsburgh; the newspapers call it bloody Hillsville. Dominick's first order of business is to gain the trust of and join a secret, cutthroat association called The Black Hand, the dreaded Mafia of his Italian homeland. This is a world of secret codes, duels, vendettas, assassins, bizarre initiation rights, unbridled law enforcement, prejudice, bigotry, and the near slavery of immigrant laborers. The Black Hand is an organization held together by the Omerta, an oath of silence. Breaking the Omerta is the key to solving Houk's murder, but to disobey the Omerta carries a sentence of death, and Dominick must take the vow knowing he is duty bound to violate it.

In the summer of 1987, Johnny Boone set out to grow and harvest one of the greatest outdoor marijuana crops in modern times. In doing so, he set into motion a series of events that defined him and his associates as the largest homegrown marijuana syndicate in American history, also known as the Cornbread Mafia. Author James Higdon—whose relationship with Johnny Boone, currently a federal fugitive, made him the first journalist subpoenaed under the Obama administration—takes readers back to the 1970s and ’80s and the clash between federal and local law enforcement and a band of Kentucky farmers with moonshine and pride in their bloodlines. By 1989 the task force assigned to take down men like Johnny Boone had arrested sixty-nine men and one woman from busts on twenty-nine farms in ten states, and seized two hundred tons of pot. Of the seventy individuals arrested, zero talked. How it all went down is a tale of Mafia-style storylines emanating from the Bluegrass State, and populated by Vietnam veterans and weed-loving characters caught up in Tarantino-level violence and heart-breaking altruism. Accompanied by a soundtrack of rock-and-roll and rhythm-and-blues, this work of dogged investigative journalism and history is told by Higdon in action-packed, colorful and riveting detail.
Book Breaking the Outlaw Biker Code of Silence Description/Summary:
"We can't be infiltrated, no cops can get inside of us, they don't have the resources, the manpower or the time to wait. We're unbeatable and untouchable." (Hells Angel, Ralph "Sonny" Barger, quoted in Droban, 2007, p. back cover) "There's nobody lower in this world than someone who rats on our club...and that includes Anthony Tait." (Barger, 2000, p. 229) Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs as organized crime bodies are considered to be the single most serious threat to North America-the enemy within. Members of Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs have been deemed "criminals without borders"-they are known and feared the world over. Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs close their world to the outside; outlaw bikers tend to be highly suspicious of outsiders, and they are extremely concerned about being infiltrated by undercover police officers. Members of the outlaw biker subculture do not want to be studied and, consequently, refuse to engage in formal interviews, fill out questionnaires, or have any statements tape-recorded. There is a rigid code of silence that cloaks their world in secrecy-the punishment for breaking this code is death. Nonetheless, there are literally hundred of works written on the outlaw biker subculture. Many of these works are polarized between two extremes, being probiker or anti-biker. Myth, legend, and reality overlap in the history of the outlaw biker. A researcher needs to become completely familiar with the topic they are investigating. This means seeking out, obtaining, and then reading as much as possible. The literature on your topic under investigation will be made up of many different kinds of sources, including scholarly literature, popular literature, newspaper articles, and magazine articles. Until now there has only been one attempt to compile a comprehensive literature search of the diverse sources on Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs. That attempt, published in 1996, was a valuable addition to the literature and an excellent source for those studying the outlaw biker subculture; however, it is out-ofdate and did not include many sources. Breaking the Outlaw Biker Code of Silence fills in the gaps and provides one of the most comprehensive compilations of sources on the outlaw biker phenomenon. This literature search is unique because it includes sources written by academics, law enforcement officials, former and current outlaw bikers, females associates, authors of popular literature, and journalists. The dissemination of the literature is important because the purpose of research is to contribute in some way to our understanding of the outlaw biker subculture. This cannot be done if information is not shared. The sources in this book are organized in a manner that attempts to make the bibliography a user friendly tool for a variety of possible readers ranging from academic researchers and students, journalists, authors of popular literature, lawyers, judges, law enforcement personnel, members of the outlaw biker subculture, and members of the general public.
