White (Higher Authority, LJ 10/1/94) wastes no time getting right to the action in this fast-paced, multilayered thriller. Opening with the shocking murder of the U.S. Surgeon General by a zealous right-to-lifer, this story shifts ahead to a mysterious shooting at the home of the surgeon's daughter, Emma. To complicate matters, the one holding the smoking gun is none other than Lauren Crowder, Boulder County deputy DA and Emma's friend. So why does Lauren risk jail to protect Emma's privacy and what does Emma have to hide? The seemingly cluttered cast of characters soon fall into place, with intriguing twists handled adeptly by best-selling author White. Reader Frank Muller adds just enough vocal nuance to differentiate characters without being overly dramatic. White's numerous fans will not be disappointed with this solid mystery.
