Book Description

A KIDNAPPING WITH TIME RUNNING OUT...

For Honolulu P.D. homicide detective Jon Stanton, the body of a young boy discovered in the bushes of an upscale neighborhood is more than just another homicide. This one is personal.

The boy was eleven years old and a witness to the kidnapping of a wealthy housewife and her daughter. Stanton believes them to still be alive, but held by a host of desperate, unstable men. Men willing to kill children to achieve their ends.

Stanton and his new partner, the seductive and alluring niece of his boss, search from the seedy bars in Honolulu's Chinatown, to the homes of those that buy and sell flesh like cattle, and Stanton's wits will once again be tested to their limits.

Ultimately, Stanton will have to make the choice between justice and the law as he tracks down a perpetrator whose identity will shock him.

    2.0 out of 5 stars decidedly average - below Methos usual standard 16 Aug. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Was looking forward to this but quite a predictable plot and well below the standard expected of a Victor Methos. Let's hope the next one is better...

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Jon Stanton book! 20 May 2014
    By Joan Cappolino - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This was a book that kept my interest and had many twists and turns. I like the characters...especially Jon Stanton. The author is excellent at getting the reader to feel the drama of the chases...I enjoy all Victor Methos books..due to his exceptional writing style .

    5.0 out of 5 stars Different type of Jon Stanton thriller; riveting as always 1 May 2014
    By George T - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The style and substance of the latest Jon Stanton thriller feels different. Maybe it's that Victor Methos focuses more on Stanton's relationship with his new partner, a female detective, or perhaps it's because Methos gives us a different type of antagonist (not a serial killer in this one)...whatever it is, this book felt different from those that came before. This is a good thing. Whereas the earlier books felt like they were inspired by Thomas Harris, this one feels more like a journey into George Pelecanos territory. Methos is a master of setting and I love that he has given us a couple of stories now that are set in Honolulu. For those of us who have never been there, the city jumps off the page. Well done, Methos! Please keep 'em coming!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Made me want to read more Methos 12 Aug. 2014
    By Life Examined - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is, I believe, the 8th in Methos' Jon Stanton series. It was not perfect, it did not blow me away, but it was good enough to make me go back to read Stanton #1, WHITE ANGEL MURDER. WHITE ANGEL was significantly better than RUN AWAY which I did not expect.

    While reading descriptions of grotesque, evil things done to people, I try to remember that Methos was/is a prosecuting attorney. His books are loosely based on his personal trial experiences. If you are a doubter of "pure evil", this series may dispel your doubts.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great character development 23 Jun. 2014
    By Emily H. - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Mr. Methos builds characters to whom one can connect. They don't even need to be primary characters to make you able to get a strong sense of who they are. He does very well at keeping a focus on the story line and does not get caught up with unimportant details but is still able to keep the story rich with them. I will definitely continue to read his books because I have yet to be let down.
