Publisher's Summary

The stakes have just been raised for psychologist Alan Gregory: his friend and fellow therapist Hannah Grant has mysteriously died at the office. The police are baffled, leaving another apparent homicide unsolved in Boulder. Only Alan has the means to decipher Hannah's clues, a quest that will take him to Las Vegas and lead him to question the integrity of those closest to him.

The clock is ticking as Alan tracks one of Hannah's most elusive patients; has she been kidnapped, or is she a runaway? The answers to both cases may be locked in the mind of a patient he has been treating for a schizoid personality disorder. In a maze of dilemmas that could cost him his career, or his life, Alan takes a bold risk that will have listeners racing to the stunning conclusion of Missing Persons.

Another Good One by White

I have never been dissapointed in any of this authors books and this is not an exception.

People keep dissapearing as psychologist Alan Gregory trys to figure out what happened to one of his associates. There are lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing till the very end.

The author does a very good job with describing the area around Boulder, the weather conditions and the essence of the community. I was very impressed with the way he blended information from a well known missing person case into the story without getting into the politics of the case.

Good plotline

Great book. One of the better ones so far,in the Alan Gregory series. The plot has some good twists that make it less formulaic. Also, Stephen White didn't have the annoyingly redundant phrases in this book like others. Not much in the way of relationship development with Lauren and Alan -- perhaps mirroring real marriage?? Enjoy it, I did.

Refreshingly different from other mysteries!

Would you consider the audio edition of Missing Persons to be better than the print version?

The narrator of this book was really wonderful. There were actually many times throughout his reading where I stopped to picture how a scene must've looked on the page, then how I would have read it in my head, and reached the conclusion that this guy was much better than my mental narrative would have been. The accents and inflections easily set the characters apart but were never cheesy or overdone.Lastly I appreciated his little touches, like making the characters sound slightly out of breath while they were running. Very well done - he really added to an already great story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Missing Persons?

There were a lot of moments that genuinely surprised me. Possible vague/minor spoilers here:In most mysteries/thrillers, the plots can feel almost formulaic at times. If a minor character turns up missing, they're dead. If 2 events might be connected, they are. If trace amounts of blood are found, someone was murdered. This book was refreshingly realistic in that sometimes things just randomly happen that might not be part of some complex sinister plot.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. The plot had me hooked from the beginning and didn't seem to have any filler (unnecessary back stories, drawn out descriptions of scenery, etc.)
