Publisher's Summary

She tried to tell her friends. She even went to the police. No one would believe her - and now she was dead.

Problems had always followed Susan White, but when she remarried and moved to Houston's posh suburbs, she thought the past was behind her - until she met a deputy sheriff named Kent McGowen who would soon become her worst nightmare.

McGowen was an aggressive cop with a spotty record. When Susan rebuffed his advances, she claimed he stalked and harassed her, using her troubled teenage son as bait. And then, in an act of arrogance and revenge, he made good on his threats, setting her up for the kill.

In A Warrant to Kill, Kathryn Casey meticulously pieces together the tragic shards of the case to create a riveting story of vengeance, fear, and justice - of the terrifying power a badge can have in the wrong hands.

    Story
    "Shocked ! Hope this never happens again !"

    This is probably the hardest to write my feelings about ! It's very hard to believe that this could have happened ..... This snot nose, but sooo, very dangerous !!! So Called Cop ! I find it deplorable that regardless of this woman's problems, that they were, brought in by the defense as some kind of reason for what happened to her by ( Kent ) Then the jury and I will leave that out so not to ruin this for future readers. SERIOUSLY JURORS ! OK having said a small portion of my obvious disgust I'll move on. Kathryn Casey, you never disappoint ! Your writing is as always very well done. I use to be and still am a fan of Ann Rule, whom will be missed ! but you are every bit up there yourself.... I also am so glad that your Audible books are ( Unabridged ) Looking forward to more True Crime that hopefully you will continue to write. To the Narrator. Melanie Haynes: I think you did a great job, which makes all the difference in these Audible books. The difference about how this book made a impact in my thinking is that this obviously took place quite a while back and much has changed in forensics, however, I hope that these kinds of, I'll say Rogue Cops, that some how get through and into, and out, to the public, are much more scrutinized now. The so called we stick together bologna, in my opinion screamed of close to in this case, of skirting a crime, for not coming forth about this, "Reserve Deputy" his clearly chilling behavior witnessed by many police and deputy's. Thank you: LB Nelson.

    "Found this book boring"

    Didn’t care much for this book. I think the narrator wasn’t great. I’ve read other Casey books and enjoyed them.

    "Power meets Chaos"
    What did you like best about A Warrant to Kill? What did you like least?

    I am a big fan of Kathryn Casey's writing - she has filled in the gaps Ann Rule has created as of late. This is one of Kathryn Casey's first books, and the writing is uneven and seems to spell out things unnecessarily. That being said, all good authors start somewhere, and this is by no means a bad book. The narrator was very good.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the things I like about kathryn Casey's true crime books is that she will generally outline the whole story, warts and all. Susan White was a tragic victim of a killer cop, perhaps because of the way she started out by staunchly defending her troubled son. As a result of the chaotic way she lived her life, she became a mark for a cop who sought nothing by power.

    This is a worthy edition to true crime libraries, though better books of Casey's include newer offerings: A Descent into Hell, Deadly Little Secrets.

    What did you like best about A Warrant to Kill? What did you like least?

    Not the best true crime not the worst. If you like Ann Rule you will enjoy this book.


    Did Melanie Haynes do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Decent narrator


    Did A Warrant to Kill inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I love true crime and this is not a bad listen.
