Valentine hadn't believed her. But Valentine didn't know McGowen. McGowen was on duty, serving a warrant signed by a judge for White's arrest. He claimed he'd fired only when she'd pulled a gun.
At first it seemed a clear case of self-defense. But the rumors persisted, talk of a power-hungry cop not adverse to manipulating the legal system to satisfy a vengeful rage. Theirs is a cautionary tale of the terrifying power of one bad cop and the helplessness of a woman caught in his sights. I hope you enjoy "A Warrant to Kill. Read more Read less.

A Warrant to Kill
The author is no Ann Rule, but then again, who is? Kent McGowen is unbelievable. I cannot believe how this sexist pig of a sociopath was even allowed NEAR a badge and gun. His parents seemed to be a big part of his problem anyone who had the temerity to criticize their boy were "liars" and "possessed by the devil".

Susan White has to be one of the unsympathetic victims I've ever read about. While I am NOT saying she deserved to be murdered, her behavior was appalling.
This was a woman who was completely out of control, promiscuous and blind as far as her only child was concerned. All she thought of was money and how she could get ahead in the world, no matter what it took to get there. That said, I am appalled that Kent McGowen was permitted to stalk this woman and her son with impunity for so long. Perhaps if he had been dealt with earlier in his "career", Susan White would still be alive today. That is, if she didn't kill herself with all the pills she'd been consuming.

I feel a short review of books like "Warrant to Kill" are best because no one, however unintentionally, should give away the ending of a true crime story. Set in Houston, WK is a first rate tale of murder of an innocent woman by a police officer. It is obvious early on that this cop never should have been issued a badge. I found WK personally disturbing because I believe there are more bad apples on most big city police forces than we care to admit. The resolution of the crime will definitely leave many readers dissatisfied. This is no fault of author Casey.
Was justice done in this instance? One will just have to read WK to find out for themself. What I've always termed the "Ann Rule rule" is in effect!

Do not read the centerfold pictures until the end! As in many true crime tales, they give away the ending. Why do editors permit this?

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.
