In his fifth book about intrepid Colorado psychologist Alan Gregory, Stephen White zooms in on Gregory's wife, Lauren--an assistant district attorney who has multiple sclerosis. Protecting a friend targeted by anti-abortion terrorists, Lauren shoots at a man during a snowstorm and sets off a blizzard of recriminations. As usual, White makes the evolution of a convoluted plot as believable as the rocky landscape. Previous Gregory adventures available in paperback: Harm's Way, Higher Authority, Private Practices, Hardcover edition.
Disappointed, July 26, 2002 Reviewer: A reader from Cincinnati, OH I have read all of Stephen White's books. This was the only one that I really didn't like and struggled to get through. Lauren was just too pathetic, the plot twists were absurd and even Alan (my favorite character) was a bit hard to take. If you're a Stephen White fan you have to read it just to do so, but definitely check this one out of the local library rather than purchasing it. If you're not a White fan, don't bother with it. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition
