Blog Tour: Below the Surface - Playlist, Guest Post + Giveaway

Tour Schedule
Title: Below the Surface (Code of Silence #3)
Author: Tim Shoemaker

Something is wrong with Cooper. He’s plagued by a fear he doesn’t understand and can’t control. Cooper just wants to escape, and a summer vacation aboard the restored cabin cruiser, The Getaway, with best friends Gordy, Hiro, and Lunk seems like the perfect way to do it. Two weeks of fun—with no mysteries or life-and-death danger. That’s the plan. But their plans are shattered the very first night when they witness a murder. Or did they? Despite their intentions of leaving the investigation to the police, narrow misses and creepy encounters lure them in. Is there really a body floating in the underwater currents of the lake? The closer they get to the truth, the deeper into danger they get. Too late they see the trap. Now each of them must face their own buried fears . . . just below the surface.

2 Favorite Books Read in 2014
I read parts of a ton of books, and some all the way through. I especially love reading YA books. Here are two that come to mind immediately.
  • The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt
  • Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt
Below the Surface Playlist
Movie soundtracks would be perfect.  Instrumentals—nothing with vocals though.  And because Below the Surface is full of adventure and suspense, you could pick a number of the soundtracks by composer John Williams.  Think Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Superman, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and so many more.

The late Michael Kamen also has a blockbuster lineup of movie soundtracks that would be fantastic for Below the Surface.  Like the overture for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.  Or the music he composed for The Three Musketeers would work nicely.

How about Klaus Badelt and Hans Zimmer… I’m thinking Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack here. Or John Debney with the swashbuckling score for Cutthroat Island.  I’d love to hear music by John Powell… The Bourne Identity… playing for Below the Surface. When you’ve got action and suspense, there’s no end to great movie soundtracks to use as a playlist!
