A Warrant to Kill: A True Story of Obsession, Lies, and a Killer Cop | [Kathryn Casey]

A Warrant to Kill: A True Story of Obsession, Lies, and a Killer Cop

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.

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.

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

    Decent narrator

    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.
