Dr. Gregory is starting to feel settled, hopeful that a long period of upheaval in his private life is behind him. He refocuses his energy on his clinical psychology practice, where a beguiling new patient captivates him, but the interlude of calm doesn’t last. Devastating fires are threatening Boulder. Alan’s dear friend Diane is showing signs of a long-simmering emotional collapse. And Alan’s most pressing fear - the exposure of a dangerous secret - has become a peril too real to ignore.
A new witness has surfaced, causing the police to reopen their investigation into the suicide of a woman named Justine Winter Brown. When Alan and his equally culpable friend, Sam Purdy, inadvertently disclose their involvement in her death to a stranger, any confidence they feel about riding out a renewed investigation evaporates. The trail that leads to Alan and Sam, once cold, has turned white-hot.
With his vulnerability mounting daily, Alan suspects that his mesmerizing new patient may be the catalyst that could cause everything he treasures - his marriage, his family, his friendships, and his future - to implode. As flames lick at the city, the story hurtles toward a shocking conclusion that leaves the stage set for a jaw-dropping last act - the upcoming final book in the two-decades-long Alan Gregory saga.

There so much going on in one book
Allen knowing Lauren was,well listen to the book
By far the best of Allen Gregory series the only book he has done better was the Siege, I have listened to all of the series and I truly enjoy them. well written good characters. very human these characters you can relate to them.
Dick Hill does a great Sam and Alan and even women. He's one of my favorite readers.
Stephen White gripped my attention from start to finish. He knows people and weaves amazing story lines until they collide! I want more Alan Gregory!
I have been a fan of Stephen White's series for years. Very disappointed at how poorly the narrator's voice works for the Dr. Gregory character. He sounds just right for the older, jaundiced cop sidekick, but not for the fit, youthful, vigorous Alan.
Younger sounding narrator.
I will continue to follow Stephen White. He is a super story teller and always has done enough research in whatever related topic (in this case, suicide) the story brings in so that you really learn something besides being entertained.
Really really wish they would find a narrator that fits the Alan Gregory character. This guy doesn't deliver as a young, vigorous, intelligent Doc.
True to the characters I have come to know
Some of the other Alan Gregory books
Realizing what Sam & Alan did to protect their children
Wish this series was not coming to an end
