Lauren, a deputy DA, and detective Sam Purdy both learn facts they can’t share with Alan, but Alan discovers that he has a most unusual perspective into what truly happened after the housewarming. Before he can decipher the puzzle, a crucial witness is murdered. Alan fears that other witnesses -- people he loves -- could be next.
I have read and enjoyed the whole Alan Gregory series but I was very disappointed in this one. I kept waiting for something to happen & I didn't feel it really did. Yes, there was suspense at the end but it didn't seem believable to me and Dr. Gregory's questioning seemed inappropriate. I was a little disappointed with the previous book in the series, I think it's possible the series may be over.

This was a good mystery. It lacked some of the strong sense of place I associate with White's novels, but a big part of that may simply be that Boulder itself is changing so rapidly and losing some of what makes it unique. Nonetheless, this was a good Alan Gregory novel and more engaging than some of the previous entries in the series. Recommended.
