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.

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.

Steven White is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Once you've started h9is books, they are hard to put down. The protagonist, Dr Alan Gregory, a psychologist/detective, is among the alumni of a psychology training program. Members are beginning to be murdered, and he has to find the merderer before he becomes a victim himself. Great reading!

Stephen White's mysteries always have interesting twists. If you're familiar with Boulder, Colorado, they're always even more interesting!

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~

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.

A string of accidental deaths appear to be bizarre accidents, until Dr. Alan Gregory discovers the chilling link. Each was the victim of an ingeniously planned, brilliantly executed murder. Thus they are plunged into the private nightmare of a killer, who knows about the terrifying power of mind games.

Ex-FBI agents tell Alan Gregory that someone has been killing doctors he worked with as an intern. They think he may be next. Because of confidentiality he can't give them names besides he doesn't remember. Very good story
