A gripping story that will captivate and thrill you! Striking characters that deal with murder, sexual tension, and guilt. Add a little humor and a surprise ending, you can't go wrong. Stephan White has done it again with another edge of your seat thriller! Loved it, this book rocks!!!!
Very gripping tale; first book I've read by this author and I will be reading more. The main character is a psychologist named Alan Gregory; one of his patients tells him that her husband has murdered a woman. I could not put this book down; I read it in 3 evenings. Will definitely keep you interested.
Author White seems to think the Army/Navy game is played at West Point. Wrong, it's Philadelphia. Other than that he got a lot right with this book. He gets better each time. Alan's still the Caspar Milktoast of the psych set, and Sam is still the hard nosed Detective; but there is much more insight into their lives. The book is also a departure in that Alan and Sam get to speak for themselves. Interesting twist at the end but you'll probably see it coming. Read on.
Psychologist Alan Gregory is busy juggling his responsibilities as a father, husband, and doctor, when a beautiful woman walks into his office with an astounding admission: Gibbs Storey thinks her husband may have murdered a woman. Then Gibbs stuns Alan again with another revelation: She thinks there are other victims...and that her husband is not finished killing yet.
Now Alan must walk a perilous ethical line by revealing just enough to interest his detective friend, Sam Purdy. Alarmed for Gibbs's safety, Alan and Sam begin attacking the case from two sides...As Alan continues his sessions with Gibbs, struggling to untangle her tales of a dark, twisted marriage, Sam races down south, certain he is hunting a serial killer on a final rampage. But even Sam cannot know the secrets Gibbs Storey is still revealing to Alan Gregory in his Boulder office, secrets Alan is keeping to himself-or that somehow, somebody else has already heard them all...
Another great can' put it down read from Stephan White.
One of psychologist Alan Gregory's former couples-therapy patients return to see him solo, when she suspects that her unfaithful husband may be a serial killer. Patient Gibbs Storey blurs the ethical boundaries between patient and therapist when she seeks protection and legal aide from Alan and his detective friend Sam Purdy.
I did not enjoy this story as much as the previous in the series, mostly because I did not find the character of Gibbs sympathetic or interesting in any way. The story is told in chapters narrated by Alan or Sam and some developments do occur in their personal lives, but ultimately Blinded is just not as suspenseful as the other Alan Gregory novels. Loyal fans of the series will read it, but those new to Stephen White's books should start elsewhere.

The Alan Gregory series is one of my favorites for listening on my commute. His personal life with wife, Asst DA Lauren, their child and dogs really draws you to relate to his character. This is one of the better episodes with a beautiful patient, Gibbs Story, whose tales of her husband and potential serial killer get both Alan and his best Friend, police detective, Sam Purdy,totally drawn in. Lots of suspense and "can't stop listening" parts.
Very suspenseful! A satisfying read. I thought that this would be a quick read, a sort of "fluffy" novel. I was surprised at the complexity of the character development and also the vocabulary used by the author; his diction challenged me, which I appreciated.
Great mystery!! A murder has been committed and revealed to a psychologist by the wife of the murderer. He in turn reveals just enough to a detective buddy and they find as they investigate that this is actually a serial murderer. Excellent read and very surprising ending!!
I LUV Dr. Alan Gregory. Tho happily married, a beautiful lady can always turn his head. And this time, not only Alan is panting like a little school boy, but his buddy, Detective Sam Purdy has been smitten and they both get drawn into a web of deceit. Great book!
Duo voices of characters will grow on you as a listener. Alan Gregory is the psychologist with a best friend detective Sam. Each man involved in the life and welfare of one beautiful seductress. More than one mystery is persued by each man who go two separate ways to solve their personal dilemmas as well as find out what actually happened to their prime suspect. The voices are so totally different that it is a mystery to me as to who is doing the narration. Does Dick Hill do both? Highly recommend this and I am so glad that my auto has a cassette player as well as a cd player. Exxxcellent audio book.

Then Gibbs stuns Alan again with another revelation: She thinks there are other victims...and that her husband is not finished killing yet. Gibbs is not revealing all of her secrets to Alan, and other ears are listening. One book in a series of 13 with Dr. Alan Gregory. Great mystery series.
