    Suspenseful mystery. Jon Stanton wears his heart on his sleeve. His sister is disappeared twenty-seven years ago. Every little clues he investigates, comes up short. One dead end after another almost breaks him. But Hanny and Jon going to be very good bodies.

    This may turn out for me to be the start of the demise of this series. I got a different feeling out of this book compared to the others. Previous books seemed to have a solid plot, something that I hoped was following the author's twisty plan. This felt disjointed, like it was written-as-you-go. Stanton's unusual propensity to violence in this book didn't help either. It had me asking myself "what is Methos doing?" Stanton doesn't behave like this. He doesn't conspire to kill suspects instead o This may turn out for me to be the start of the demise of this series. I got a different feeling out of this book compared to the others. Previous books seemed to have a solid plot, something that I hoped was following the author's twisty plan. This felt disjointed, like it was written-as-you-go. Stanton's unusual propensity to violence in this book didn't help either. It had me asking myself "what is Methos doing?" Stanton doesn't behave like this. He doesn't conspire to kill suspects instead of arresting them. He certainly never tortures anyone to get information out of them. I don't buy into the notion that the abduction of his sister is tipping him over the edge. The obsession with it felt weak, not so complicated that after nearly three decades a level headed guy like him couldn't rationalise it. He's out of control in this book. He jeopardizes much of the evidence he discovers to the point where it would be inadmissible in court and his selfish actions almost result in the death of a colleague. The old Stanton has been replaced by someone less admirable. His colleague summed him up well, he doesn't talk to people, he talks at them.

    A return home leads to pain and healing... For Stanton as he attempts to rid the killer of his sister years before Jon became a man. His return to his native state of Washington began with meeting a detective with the Seattle PD, an attractive female detective who wanted to see Jon find his sister's killer. Be prepared to sit on the edge of your seats as Jon determines a suspect from his past may be the culprit. Is he correct...or does he miscalculate? Returns home are not always pretty.

    I have chill bumps!!!!! This may be my favorite book yet - in this series. The twists, turns, raw emotions, love, hate, friends and enemies were so intertwined! I loved the ending!! Can't wait to start book 10 for various reasons. I don't want to spoil anything for the readers. I have enjoyed this series immensely. Sad there aren't many more. Jon Stanton is such a convoluted man in good ways and bad.

    Is this goodbye? If so then there is no good in it. Hoping this will Just bring a new purpose in Jon. At last he's found the answer he's been searching for...spoiler alert ... no , ain't gonna do it, read it for your self. A new house mate enters. Hope Hanny stays! Read on fellow fans.

    Review of Mania I gave this latest installment of the Job Stanton series a 5 Rating. Stanton finally was able to get Closure from the Disappearance of his Sister. He was ten when she disappeared and this haunted him his entire life. He became a great Homicide cop because of his obsession with the Disappearance of his sister. The ending was very reasonable and very believable

    So Fine Did it again. Just as you think Victor can't pull off another one he astounds you. This series has been blessed and that rarely happens. You end up feeling connected to the character.

    Another great Jon Stanton Mystery I have been enjoying all of the Jon Stanton Mysteries by Victor Methos (as well as other books he has written). I’m on my 9th book of this series and this is my favorite so far. I gave the others a 4 star rating and this one 5 stars.

    Another good read This book brought me to a scary place. It always has some little words of wisdom in his books. A psychological study that he mentions. It was a very fast read. Do these things really go on? I think so!

    Catharsis I finally see Jon Stanton developed as a whole character. This is what this series was missing. I feel as if I have been reading exposition up to now.

    The best ever. Lots of suspense in this story, and excitement. Stanton was more real to the reader than before. I had a hard time not reading the whole book in one sitting.
