Have you ever woken up wondering where you were, who you were, and why you were wanted for murder?
Award-winning bestselling author Ezra Barany unleashes a San Francisco thriller
A man with amnesia is chased by the police for a crime he doesn’t remember committing.
As the evidence piles up against him, he must do all he can to clear his name before admitting to himself that he may be a cold-blooded killer after all.
From The Author:
From the opening of the movie "Dark City," to "The Fifth Bullet" episode in the Castle television series, to "Bourne Identity," the stories that used the amnesia trope always grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't let go. I loved them so much, I had to try incorporating that trope in one of my books.
It was exciting to see how my main character worked at figuring out who he was, and especially interesting to discover his inner struggle at determining if he was a good person or not.
I sprinkled in other characters: ones requiring redemption, and others who society deemed to be "bad people." I poured this concoction of characters into a thick plot and stirred in a good helping of danger. Coming up with danger required dreaming up things. Disturbing things. Things like murder. And kidnapping. And romance.
This book has all those things, so be forewarned.

Since this was the first book in the Torah Codes that I’ve read, I found myself confused right along with the main character, Carl, who suffered from amnesia from page one. Since I had no previous idea of who he was, the mystery surrounding him immediately pulled me in. I just had to uncover the answers about the man as he went from one befuddling ordeal to another. While he desperately wanted to find out who he was to the outside world, it was more important for him to find out who he was to himself. With each page, I worried with Carl…was he a good guy? Or, would it turn out he was the cold-blooded killer he increasingly feared he might be? Add to that someone was trying to kill him, which made him vulnerable since he had no idea who he could turn to for help or answers. The unfolding story grabbed my attention and I couldn’t let go until I reached the end.
As a bonus, I love having a little snark to spice up my suspenseful thrillers, and Ezra Barany’s Bullets Aren’t Kosher totally fits the bill. You can’t go wrong with this book!
I received this book as a FREE ARC copy to read and I voluntarily leave this review.
