    This did not feel like a Jon Stanton mystery to me. In fact, there is no mystery. No twisted bad guy. Simply a kidnapping of a woman, instigated by her husband and perpetrated by a trio of thugs with much violence thrown in. A lot of it isn't terribly realistic. I'm finding Stanton more irritating with each book. Early in series he never had any female companionship, now he appears to have choices. Yet his out dated views prevent any connections. Get real. This psychic business is getting a drag This did not feel like a Jon Stanton mystery to me. In fact, there is no mystery. No twisted bad guy.

This psychic business is getting a drag too. He either is or isn't but get on with it. The constant psychiatry visits don't sit well with me either given how perceptive he is with everyone else. I've read all series back-to-back so far so maybe I'm getting a little Stantoned-out. They're all good but this can't be considered as one of the best

    Once again Mr. Methos writes a very entertaining novel with fully fleshed-out characters and believable storylines. I'm now on to the next Detective John Stanton book (#9). Stanton's complexity has grown substantially over the life of the series as his inner demons and wrecked family life fight with his strong Mormon beliefs. Add to that his insights into both himself and his cases based on his education (he holds a PhD in psychology) and you have a pretty unusual lead character.

If you like procedurals and private-eye novels, you will enjoy this one. Better to have read up to this one with the prior stories, but not necessary as Methos slices in background quite seamlessly.

    Wonderfully written, as usual MOST important , however, were the psychological analyses of the psyches, the products of our defective DNA. Such understanding of mankind's inherent evil can come only by those personally victmized by it, and those who are insightful enough to know they have seen EVIL. Such a LONELY path fornus.

    I'm sorry to say that I think all the books in the series that I have read are just so weak. I started reading the 1st because it was just there. Easy. And by the time I realized that I didn't really like the lead character, and most of the story lines I was into the 4th or fifth book. Now, as stupid as it sounds I feel like I've invested so much time that I have to finish the series. I feel sorry for the Author who wrote them. How could the masses gobble up such crap.

    Vengeance is mine, says God That's a good thing. Only He can do it right and suffer no repercussions. Stanton thinks maybe that's why he is a cop. To find justice for crime victims. It can't be found in this life. This is another riveting story but one I had to lay down to catch my breath from gasping ... and. I admit, swearing. Stanton wouldn't approve.

    Fast paced Here I am again finishing up another Victor Methos book at 2AM. I need to start reading earlier in the day because I simply can't stop until the story ends when I read Mr. Methos's books. Fast paced Here I am again finishing up another Victor Methos book at 2AM.

    I enjoyed this book and as most of these books are I was scared most of the time. It is so easy to put yourself in the shoes of these people and that is not good. If in the place of these victims. Could be anybody. Good book and now onto the next in the series.

    I do enjoy a good thriller... Although I enjoy reading about Jon Stanton and his adventures, I felt this book had a little too much technical talk that wasn’t necessary for me to understand. I will continue reading this saga to find out what happens next.

    Victor Methos Currently one of my favorites for suspense writers. Run Away was a heart pounding twist and turn in the under belly of the Hawaiian police force!!

    Stupid Book Poorly written book. Author has a very weird imagination. Knows nothing about police investigations. Total waste of time reading this book.

    Runaway. Book 8 in the series. I would of liked to see a bit more suspense. The ending was disappointing. A bit far fetched.
