I am a major fan of all of Stephen White's mysteries involving Dr. Alan Gregory. This one is late in the series, but his home life plays a minor part so reading it out of order isn't particularly jarring.
I highly recommend this series for mystery lovers.
I've enjoyed several books by Stephen White, but this one is the absolute BEST!! There are so many questions, twist, turns -- it's difficult to put the book down. Try it -- bet you will like it!
Pretty good - I didn't figure out who the bad guy was at all!
I found this story pretty thrilling and there's some seriously twisted stuff that comes from one of the characters. This story held my interest and I blazed through the chapters pretty quickly, my only complaint is that it runs long in some areas. I wasn't interested in the many geography lessons and weather lessons of Colorado, but if you skim over that you will rnjoy the rest of the pace of the story. I will definetely read more of Mr. White's books.
I know this says book 11 of a series, but I was pleased to see that it read like a stand alone book. So, if you have not gotten through this series to this point you can take this one and not suffer any gaping holes without reading the previous 10. I was pleased with the book. It had some very twisted plot portions which is exactly what you are looking for in a crime novel. It was a good read for someone who only occasionally does crime novels or mysteries. There wasn't a ton of procedural junk in this story that sometimes puts readers off that might like the story but aren't interested in the finer points of police or legal mechanics. It frees the reader up for just enjoying the narrative and the story. If you only occasionally do this type of fiction give this a try. If you are an experienced reader of this type of material and a stickler for correct police or legal minutia, go somewhere else.
