From Publishers Weekly
Bestseller White's 13th Alan Gregory thriller gets off to a fast start with the psychologist's discovery of the corpse of his social worker colleague Hannah Green at their shared offices in Boulder, Colo. But the case that propels the narrative is that of "another little girl [who] has disappeared on Christmas night in Boulder." The echoes of the JonBenet Ramsey murder are unmistakable (if never mentioned explicitly), but this time the "little girl" is a teenager, Mallory Miller—and she may simply have run away. Her entire family is dysfunctional: her schizophrenic mother, for example, moved to Las Vegas to indulge her obsession for attending other people's weddings. Then others begin to disappear: Diane, another colleague of Alan and Hannah, who was in Las Vegas searching for Mallory's mother; Bob, one of...

From Publishers Weekly
Bestseller White (Missing Persons) takes an endlessly debatable question—at what point would a decline in your quality of life cause you to want to end your life?—and leverages it into a clever, absorbing thriller. The anonymous narrator is in his prime, a happily married father of a young girl given to high-risk sports. An assortment of grim fates and a near-escape of his own make him consider the question. A shadowy group called Death Angel Inc. contracts to guarantee that if the life of the "insured" should reach a certain agreed-upon level, they will terminate that life. Fascinated and impressed by the Death Angels' knowledge and reach, he eventually negotiates terms with them. This Faustian bargain doesn't take long to reveal its dark side, and White pays almost equal attention to the...

From Library Journal

Book Description
You bought the camera because it's tiny and elegant and easy to use (and, oh yes, it takes great pictures, too!). So why would you spend $20 on a book that's several times bigger than the camera itself--in other words, too large to carry, too expensive to languish on the shelf, and too detailed to provide the at-a-glance guidance you seek. But if that book were under 50 pages, small enough to slip into your coat pocket, and (best of all!) only $5--well, that would be perfect! And perfect this book is for the smart Coolpix user who needs nothing more than a quick visual reference to the camera¿s most common functions! Each page of this tight, bright, four-color guide features a full-page visual, step-by-step instructions, and perhaps a warning or tip at the bottom of the page. Nothing extraneous, just the...

Book Review
Boulder psychologist Alan Gregory hasn't seen former patient Gibbs Storey since she and her husband were in marriage counseling with him almost a decade ago. So when she walks into his office with a startling declaration--that she believes her husband murdered at least one woman, and may be planning to kill more--Gregory finds himself on the horns of a dilemma that's not just professional but personal as well: He can't reveal what his patient has told him, not even to his wife, who's a prosecutor, or his friend Sam, who's a cop. What's more, his feelings for Gibbs may be clouding his judgment about the truth of what she professes. Though he telegraphs the denouement too early, Stephen White once again turns in a thoughtful, well crafted novel full of interesting insights on marriage, friendship, the human condition, and the...

The extravagantly showy murder of a very private man opens White's engrossing fourth story about Colorado psychologist Alan Gregory (following Higher Authority). Alan's friend and neighbor, Peter Arvin, a skilled woodworker and solo mountain climber, is found tortured and bleeding to death on top of a grand piano on the stage of the Boulder Theatre. After Peter dies at the hospital where his wife, Adrienne, is a urologist, police detective Sam Purdy asks Alan to work up an informal profile of the killer to see whether it matches that of the person being sought for a similar murder in Denver. Complying with Adrienne's desire to be able to tell her young son, Jason, more about his father, Alan also investigates Peter's past. These linked efforts, soon complicated by a third theater murder in a nearby town, call on...

Review
"Consistently, the book rewards with fresh insights. ...Stephens writes with passion and intellectual rigor for a most engaging text." THE BEAT

"An impassioned, historically informed, and lyrical meditation on race and its discontents. Stephens' book provocatively challenges the pieties of today's identity politics, providing us with 'integrative ancestors'--Douglass, Ellison, and Marley--whose examples point to interracial cultures and post-racial futures. This is an exemplary work in literary and cultural studies." Robert S. Levine, University of Maryland and author of Martin Delany, Frederick Douglass, and the Politics of Representative Identity

"Gregory Stephens persuasively interprets the work of Douglass, Ellison, and Marley as expressions of liberation, which put them into provocative conversation with each other,...

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.
