Missing Persons

By Stephen White

     Life has just settled into a normal, dull routine, but it all unravels as psychologist Alan Gregory finds the body of a co-worker, another psychologist, sprawled oddly in someone else's office. And that's only the beginning.

     As if in shifting sands, people he knows begin to go missing in droves, and all seem related in one odd way or another, complicating things more than he ever dreamed.

     Riding the very fine line between keeping patients' confidentiality and giving information on a need to know basis to the authorities, keeps Alan on his toes, yet off his equilibrium. The tension finally climaxes when his other office partner disappears into thin air, forcing Alan into the role of investigator.

     If you like clean, straightforward psychological thrillers as much as I do, you'll love this newest title by legendary author Stephen White.

     The author writes Alan Gregory so well that it's hard to believe he's not a real person, walking around Boulder, Colorado. As usual, White's moments of humor and pathos, as well as edge-of-your-seat suspense are hard to match, and I highly recommend Missing Persons.
