Featuring the hero of White's earlier novels, Alan Gregory, this thriller concerns a sexual harassment case implicating a Mormon Supreme Court judge.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.
Attorney Lauren Crowder recommends a Salt Lake City lawyer for her younger sister, who has accused her former boss, an impeccably Mormon woman with high political and church connections, of sexual harassment. Crowder assists a private investigator in gathering information on the potentially explosive case, but murder intervenes: someone kills the P.I. and the former boss. Crowder then calls upon boyfriend Alan Gregory (Private Practices, Viking, 1993) to outmaneuver the ubiquitous, corrupt tentacles of the Mormon church. Much background research supports fine prose, subtle characterization, and intricate plotting. A good selection.

This book was dreadful... I read about half of it and scanned the rest. Author Stephen White is amazing and he deserves at least one bad book. This was it, for me. Read morePublished on Dec 6 2002 by Geonn W. Cannon

This Stephen White entry is a good suspenseful mystery set in Utah. If you are Mormon or find a calling to higher religious authority you will be offended. Read morePublished on May 26 2002 by Elias Chapelle
Having just left Utah after 4 years I was intrigued when I picked up this book. I felt the isolation portrayed by non mormons living there is accurately portrayed. Read morePublished on July 20 2001
At first I thought the Mormon bashing was sort of funny, then it got old. Real old. I've lived in "small town" Utah for 37 years and I've never heard myself or anyone... Read morePublished on Feb. 27 2001 by Flyfisher
Having a sister who is Mormon, I read "Higher Authority" with interest and expectation. I had never read any other of White's books so Lauren Crowder was new to me. Read morePublished on Feb. 21 2001
First, let me say that I am a big fan of White's books. Cold Case, with the exception of being a little overdone at the end, was one of the best mystery/thrillers I have read. Read morePublished on Nov. 15 2000
