Format: Hardcover
Stephen White is a psychologist from Denver, Colorado. This is his first novel, published in 1991. He specializes in murder mystery thrillers with significant psychological overtones. He actually got this book picked up by a major publishing house (Viking Penguin) on his own without an agent which is a major feat. Soon thereafter he was picked up by an agent. As of 2002, he has written 10 novels, several of which have been on the New York Times bestseller list.
The recurring protagonist is a Boulder, Colorado psychologist, Alan Gregory, & there are recurring characters such as Alan's fiancee (later wife) Lauren, and his cop buddy Sam. As someone who lives in Colorado, I have enjoyed the series of books, as they are set in Colorado, & I can identify with the locales. It's also been interesting to watch Alan & Lauren's romance blossom despite significant bumps in the road.
Start with this Stephen White book, & try to read the series in order. Each one is better than the previous one, & the author has become a better writer year by year.
Happy reading!

I have to debate wether to give this book three stars of four. One problem, I picked up a recommended book, Cold Case, by Stephen White. I enjoyed it. That book turned out to have been the 6th book of the series this book is the first of. So I bought this one and started from the start.
I enjoyed the mystery, I believed in a character who doesn't quite realize he's in a mystery, who's world is crumbling around him, gradually figure it out there's something to figure out. And then try to assemble the pieces he has, and guess at the pieces he doesn't, and do what he's able to to stop things from getting worse. That part entertained me!
What bothered me was the relationship between Dr Gregory and Asst DA Lauren Crowder. In the sixth book I believed the two were married and in love, in this book, thier relationship read contrived. It was destined to work out because the author had future plans for them to be together. But after a couple mixed results dates we don't... Without the relationship reading like 'yeah right!' I might have been debating between a four and a five star rating.

Stephen White, Privileged Information (Pinnacle, 1991)

For eight years I have been laboring under the delusion that Private Practice was Stephen White's first Alan Gregory novel. After discovering my error, I rushed to rectify it and picked up Privileged Information ASAP. And where Private Practice was good enough to get me involved with Alan Gregory and his therapeutic investigations, it pales beside Privileged Information.

The best thing about this novel is that it takes the notion of privilege, something those of us who watch Law and Order religiously are well aware of from the point of view of the police and the prosecutors, and gives us the other side of the argument. Therapist Alan Gregory, as the novel opens, is confronted with the sudden and unforeseeable suicide of one of his patients. The system starts to work, thanks to some leaked information, and various persons ranging from the victim's father to a persistent newshound start crucifying Gregory in the local papers. Through Gregory's conversations with his lawyer, the deputy assistant DA, and the police, we get to see privilege from the side of those whose professions it's designed to protect, and we get a full understanding of how frustrating privilege can be to those responsible for keeping it.

Not to say the book is without flaw. The mystery that develops therein has a predictable path, and we know whodunit relatively quickly. There are a few twists and turns, but nothing an avid mystery reader won't crack within a few pages after the introductions of the various clues along the way. That, however, in no way detracts from the book's readability.

If you're familiar with the Alan Gregory novels, but haven't read this one yet, do so at the earliest possible opportunity. If you're not familiar with Alan Gregory yet, what are you waiting for? ****

It is not often you come upon "the worst book you have ever read," but for me this one is it. If it weren't for the fact that I have a strange compulsion to finish a book once I've started it, I would not have lasted more than a chapter. Not only did I not empathize with the main character, I did not like him in the least. Plot is ridiculous, character development is clumsy and the love-less love interest with the DA made me thank God I am not a character in White's novel. I can't imagine what other people have seen in this novel but I warn anyone who reads this review to avoid starting something they are not going to want to finish. Run away.

I have read all of Stephen White's novels and enjoyed them immensely. However, I have to agree with a couple of the other reviewers that reading them in order is best. I failed to do so and one day when I have forgotten the details I will read his whole series from beginning to end. They are that good. In Priviledged Information we are introduced to Alan Gregory who is a very interesting character. This book is a real thriller and very suspenseful. I could not put it down like all of White's books. I find his books every bit as good as Jonathan Kellerman's. Perhaps more so as his relationships with others are explored more deeply than Alex Delaware's.
