Manner of Death is an excellent example of why I love mystery/thrillers. The manner in which the killer murdered his victims was so well-planned and contrived to look like accidents, that the authorities never suspected that there was a connection to their deaths. But when Dr. Alan Gregory's name came up on the list of possible targets, he had a warning from two former FBI agents that he was going to be next. Now, while Dr. Gregory is probably a very good psychiatrist, he could never be accused of being a crime fighter, however, he does manage to stay alive by his wit and a lot of luck!

Another solid entry in the Alan Gregory series. I admit Dr. Gregory often gets on my nerves, but White is such a good writer and his plots so well constructed, I usually read his novels in a few huge gulps. This was no exception. I stayed up far too late reading. Also, White has a wonderful sense of place, which adds to the pleasure of reading his books.

Exciting Alan Gregory book. He is a psychologist in Boulder, Colorado and has interesting conflicts with revealing information to authorities and maintaining confidentiality. In this one he discovers a chilling link between accidental deaths years ago. If you like Stephen White, you'll love this~

this book was my introduction to stephen white. i really enjoyed the story, and to be perfectly honest i didn't want to put it down, even when i had to.

it's set in my general vicinity, so it was great seeing references to familiar places -- and to my beloved colorado avalanche.

Six people die, appearing acidental, and then a link is found and the last two help in solving the crime. I've read his other books and like.

I didn't enjoy this as much as other Stephen White novels revolving around Dr. Alan Gregory. He always came across as a strong person but in this one he's needy and impulsive which IMHO is so at odds with how he has been portrayed. Maybe it's just me but I found it disturbing that even now, long married to Lauren Crowder, he still has convoluted thoughts, feelings and stupid ideas of a previous girlfriend - who dumped him with no explanation.

In another vein, I did like the psychological mystery. It was interesting to see Alan and Sawyer talk out their residency days and come up with suspects. I enjoyed the suspense and the mishaps perpetuated against Alan, Lauren and Sawyer. It was great psychological warfare. Very well done.
