Not very exciting
I am still pretty new to the Stephen White books. I am always searching for a series to read. I read the first two in the series, skipped the third (it doesn't really revolve around Gregory or a story I care about), and am currently here.Was this review helpful?

I've been interested in seeing how Alan Gregory evolves. He came across pretty soft in the first two books, but is getting a bit of a skin. White likes to support his books with strong female roles. These women come across strong, but annoying and brash. I can't figure why Alan is friends with them, I can hardly stand to read about them.
This book is highly centered around theater. Nothing wrong with that, but not very exciting. That is the central theme around this book, "not very exciting". The other books took quite a while to pick up. I thought about not finishing this book, but then it seemed to pick up a bit. That quickly stopped, however. All semi-answers and teases are so drawn out, you don't even care when you encounter a twist. I honestly didn't see the ending coming (who did it all), but it wasn't exciting. We are never even told why the killer was at the location where they are caught. Set that aside and the ending is still a bore.
I'm going to try some more of his books, but I really need something to root for in this series. Also, I don't see how it's going to credible for many stories - a non-forensic psych keeps getting involved in all of these murders.
