I've been a Stephen White fan for years-- his character Alan Gregory is a clinical psychologist who is continually pulled into the middle of gruesome crimes-- not unlike Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware-- except I find White's books more suspenseful, intelligent, and coherent. So I was thrilled to finally see a White book available on Audible! While 'Dead Time' is probably not White's best, I thought it was right up there-- lots of twists and turns, a couple of compelling subplots, and some great nailbiting moments. Unlike the other reviewer, I really like the way White takes his time to develop conversations and settings-- it facilitates the evolution of the characters and their relationships and ultimately just makes me care that much more about what happens to them.
I was a little worried I might not like the way the reader interpreted the characters I've grown so fond of, but he didn't let me down-- and he does an especially good "bad guy" voice!
For me, this was one I couldn't stop listening to until I finished. Please, Audible, let's have some more of White's books on here!
