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, Privileged Information. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
In his fifth Alan Gregory novel (following Harms Way, LJ 2/1/95), White unwinds a tightly constructed thriller involving attempted murder, high technology, and politics. Psychologist and amateur sleuth Gregory here plays a supporting role to his new wife, Deputy D.A. Lauren Crowder, who's charged with shooting a man to protect her law intern, Emma Spire. At the center of the story is Emma, a media darling for her courage years earlier when her surgeon general father was assassinated for his freedom-of-choice views and died in her arms. Desperately trying to protect her privacy, Emma finds herself vulnerable to unimaginable violation after becoming romantically involved with high-tech wizard Ethan Han, and she turns to Lauren and Alan for help. White shows sensitivity in his characterizations, in dealing with Lauren's multiple sclerosis, and in giving a D.A.'s view of what an arrested person endures. He has another top-notch page-turner here.?Michele Leber, Fairfax Cty. P. L., Va.
