Publisher's Summary

The brutal slaying of Boulder's controversial DA strikes deep in the heart of everything clinical psychologist Alan Gregory holds dear: after all, Gregory's wife Lauren worked for the dead man. But the bloodied body is just the first in a series of high-voltage incidents in a gripping story of crime and punishment, tragedy and retribution - and of human beings caught in the shattering cross fire of forces beyond their control...forces sometimes within themselves.

Undeveloped characters

White introduced several characters in the first part of the book and little was heard from them later on. I think he could have probably explained what was going on with Naomi a little better than he did. It was hard to warm up to primary protagonist Allan Gregory who went from wimpy to not-so-wimpy and then back again. Purdy was perhaps the best developed character. Not a bad story but not one that will have me rushing back to hear some more from White. His epilogue sounded as if it took him 10 years to write this book, which I thought was a bit odd. Maybe I heard wrong. Not narrator Dick Hill's best effort either. Too much variation is his volume. Very average.
