THE MOST VICIOUS MURDER IN A CITY'S HISTORY . . .

A killer stalks the city of San Diego, brutally slaying women on the fringes of society. The body of a young woman torn apart in her bedroom makes even the hardened detectives of the San Diego PD's Homicide Unit tremble with disgust and rage.


A DETECTIVE WITH A TROUBLED PAST . . .

For SDPD homicide detective Jon Stanton, the young woman is more than just another case. His former partner, Eli Sherman, was the original detective assigned to the case; before he was discovered to be one of San Diego's most ruthless serial killers.

A FINAL CHANCE AT REDEMPTION . . .

Stanton was unable to see Eli Sherman for what he was and blames himself for the murders he committed while on the force. Near death, Stanton swears that he will never wear the badge again. But with a depraved killer eluding the best San Diego PD has to offer, he must once again fight to uncover a killer that leaves no evidence behind, and that has turned his attention to new prey . . .

THE WHITE ANGEL MURDER, his third novel, is loosely based on actual cases and is followed by WALK IN DARKNESS, SIN CITY HOMICIDE and ARSONIST.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a great read May 28 2013
By Sandy TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a police procedural that is a cut above most.We are introduced to Jon Stanton, a police detective with a PhD in psychology, who comes out of retirement to take on a cold case concerning the brutal rape & murder of a young woman. He left the force because of cases like this. The last one almost killed him, literally, resulting in the conviction of his former partner. But he's at loose ends these days. His divorce is almost final & he's full of regret at losing his soon to be remarried ex-wife & settling for every second weekend to see his sons.
Jon is a complex character. He has a deep seated sense of right & wrong & feels a responsibility to the dead. He's increasingly disillusioned by the corruption around him in the department. It's a good thing he has mad skills as a detective or he may not survive some of his co-workers, never mind the "bad guys" out there.
The plot twists & turns as the cold case team race to find the monster before he strikes again. Jon has to deal with office politics, missing his family & the reappearance of the partner who almost killed him. It's difficult to know who actually has his back & there are red herrings galore.
You'll want to read this in one go & that's mostly due to Jon. He's a strong, smart & sympathetic yet fallible guy and you care about what happens to him. Yes, there are car chases, shoot outs & gory murder scenes but it's the psychological mind games that keep the tension high & the reader glued to the pages. I'll definitely pick up the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars dark, disturbing and a darned good read Dec 7 2011
By Mrs. D. L. Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A gritty, pull no punches suspense with both serial murders and police corruption. The main character really does have his back against the wall but comes out of it with integrity and closure - of sorts. The support cast could have had more of a showing, but in respects it makes sense they didn't. We really did need to follow the path of one guy who had to deal with so much: an ex partner who had tried to kill him, bosses who he could not trust, a cold case of epic proportions and a failed marriage he found it hard to give up on. I sense this may well lead to further novels starring Jon Stanton, and if there are further offerings, I will be more than interested in tagging along.

Recommended to those who like their suspense novels to show the darker side of human nature. It was well written and could easily become a film.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's only 99 cents, but still... Dec 29 2011
By paulaspenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Because this book was only $.99, I decided to give it a try. Heck, I'd only be out a dollar if I didn't like it. And I didn't like it, due in large part to the numerous religious references which made the book seem less a thriller than a recruiting pamphlet for the Mormon church. I stopped reading after the narrative went off on yet another religious tangent. I wish there was a disclaimer to indicate novels that are religious in nature. The protagonist's religious beliefs didn't add anything to the character's development and were distracting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner by V. Methos Aug. 4 2011
By Jade - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well having read the Clone Hunter I thought I would give Mr. Methos's other books a try. I thoroughly enjoyed his characters and their development in the White Angel Murder. I believe Victor has developed a character worthy of perpetuating in more books (hopefully)!
I highly recommend this book to all those who enjoy Locke and Konrath e books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Proslytizing for Mormanism... April 4 2012
By John F. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book began ordinarily enough. A 99 cent mystery with fairly interesting characters and a viable plot line. But several pages into the story, suddenly the main character began promoting Mormonism and Christianity, the first time I have seen such in a book not advertised as a religious tome. Having read the Book of Mormon and having rejected it as fantasy, I immediately deleted the book from my Kindle. I know...what should one expect from a 99 cent novel? More than this thing, I would hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transcendental read Oct. 16 2011
By andystats - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was recommended due to my other purchases and it was quite different from his other books. I'm watching "Dexter" right now so I appreciated the serial killer angle and got carried away by the visual descriptions. -great for the Kindle and great for delving into *noir* fiction.
