    Have read almost all of Methos books, started with Neon Lawyer and haven’t stopped reading them. I have to say in this series, Jon Stanton is my least favorite character/ hero. He’s just a bit too complicated. And, this last one (11) was difficult to finish. Not that it wasn’t interesting, not that the writing isn’t good. Jon Stanton is such a troubled and depressing person. The whole sleep deprivation went on too long. No one can carry on that many days without sleep. This comes from a long ti Have read almost all of Methos books, started with Neon Lawyer and haven’t stopped reading them. I have to say in this series, Jon Stanton is my least favorite character/ hero. He’s just a bit too complicated. And, this last one (11) was difficult to finish. Not that it wasn’t interesting, not that the writing isn’t good. Jon Stanton is such a troubled and depressing person. The whole sleep deprivation went on too long. No one can carry on that many days without sleep. This comes from a long time insomniac. Will this guy ever find happiness, is he incapable of love? I found myself kind of not liking him and that is not typical for the main character of a Victor Methos book. I suppose if you’re a fan of Stanton you’ll like the book, if you’ve read up to book ten you may skip this one. Sorry, Victor.

    "Stressful Life for Jon Stanton" Jon Stanton appears to have a perfect life, but his job as a homicide detective has brought him insomnia, hallucinations, and he's weakening. He feels like he's trapped in purgatory. There is now a string of merciless murders, but he refuses to turn the cases over to his partner. He just has to forge on until justice is served.

This is an awesome novel, well written by my favorite author Victor Methos, a defense attorney in Utah. Many of his stories are created from cases he's had in court. His novels are always enticing.

    I realized like half way through this that I have no feelings for Jon Stanton. Like he's a great character and whatnot but I don't love him. Lucas Davenport by John Sandford is pretty much my ideal man and we'd have had an affair if he was real. I have similar feelings about Harry Bosch in Michael Connelly's series but he's a bit too old for me. Jon, not so much. That doesn't take away from the book though.

    Nicely Written One reason I really enjoyed this series, and binge-read it, is because the stories, for the most part, are thoughtfully written. I find nothing more distracting than when the story falls apart from poor editing, with typos and misspelling. I cannot concentrate on the story due t to this carelessness. Worse than that is if the author is slipshod with the details of the story. This author seems like he always reads his own stories and creates an adventure worthy of being read by other Nicely Written One reason I really enjoyed this series, and binge-read it, is because the stories, for the most part, are thoughtfully written.

    Review of Purgatory I really enjoyed this book, because the storyline was awesome and the author made you feel like you were in Stanton s shoes. Also the story is very relevant , there is so much greed and so many Ponzi schemes. Stanton is unable to sleep because his subconscious is telling him something is wrong in his life. Unfortunately he almost died finding out and it took a Male Soulmate to make him face the truth which almost destroyed him. Great storyline and very good ending.

    jhOmg! When reading Hythe legal thrillers about Brigham the lawyer, I thought this author was even a better author than John Grisham. After reading the JOn Stanton first several bpoks. , I still considered him an excellent author, but it seemed to just get darker and more depressing with each word. Doesn't this guy Vince Methos have any mercy for his characters or his teaders? Please. Mt Methos,, let us have just a little of a happy ending? jhOmg!

    Purgatory This was a perfect ending as it showed Jon Stanton as he was. Running away from himself, yet you know he will return to his work, homicide detective. I wanted him to go away with Julie, but somehow knew he wouldn't. Ending was sad, but one knew it would end in a strange way. Highly recommend this series of books by this fantastic author. Kept me reading the whole series in one week. Purgatory This was a perfect ending as it showed Jon Stanton as he was.

    Great read I am sorry to come to the end of book eleven. I hope there will be more. Compelling read, hard to put down. I hope there are no people in the world like some of the bad guys, if they are I hope we have dedicated police like Jon Stanton to bring them to justice. I think Victor Methos is a great writer. I will read all of his books.

    Jon Stanton I have only read the author’s 11 books in this series. My wife is sort of mad because I can’t stop reading his books. They are all page turners but probably only resonate with a vets on type of people. The perfect ending ( if indeed the last of the series) would have had Jon bite a bullet.

    Wow is all i can say! Just reading this book exhausted me. The stuff that the author puts Jon Stanton in is almost beyond comprehension. You root for him, trying to give him one more bit of energy, while at the same time in your mind demanding him to stop. I hope there is another book after this!

    Purgatory. I enjoyed the Jon Staton series. There were some books that were just okay but there were others that were really page turners. Jon was living in his own Purgatory and had his own demons to fight. His job cost him his wife and fiancée. He had to get away but left behind the one thing that would of given him unconditional love.

    Not up to par for Victor Methos I hate to say this, because I'm a big Jon Stanton fan, and an even bigger Victor Methos fan. The story was contrived, and I literally rolled my eyes at some of the passages. Stanton came off as whiny, and his martyrdom became tiresome. Step it up Methos...don't fall into a trap.

    Amazing Another awesome book by Victor Methos. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down, which has been the same for all 11 of the Jon Stanton series. Hopefully, there is a #12 in the works.

    Methos' books are great. 'Purgatory' was excellent. My only negative is that Jon's sleep deprivation issue played out almost ad nauseum.....it grew tiresome to read about (no pun intended). On the other hand, Methos' writing is so good it practically makes you feel Stanton's pain & frustration. The ending makes me curious to know if this is the last book in the series.

    Again, please give Jon a break Man, poor Jon, he is really going through he'll in this story. I feel so bad for him, I am surprised they didn't make the connection in the story about the second victim being related to the first victim. They just left her story out of it.

    Purgatory I wonder how someone as damaged as Stanton continues to survive. His life is a mess with a small hope of redemption. The more he seeks happiness the more futile his search.

    Good vs Evil The Jon Stanton series is a mundane and predictable detective series. Even the prolific violence is predictable. However Jon Stanton is a man who constantly tries to define evil and fears he carries it within himself. That characteristic sets this series apart.

    Train wreck hero I love Jon's character. He goes beyond darkness but there's always a needle thin shaft of light if he can only reach it. Extreme tension and suspense to the end.

    Better This is the 11th book in the series and I started with #1 in January. Stories have progressed nicely for noir but the author needs some cleaner research.

    This one is not the best! This one really made me want to st reading in the middle of the book. It was just way over the edge. If there is another one, I hope it is better.
