Did Sam Kill Someone?

I have read all of Stephen White’s novels. I started when I lived In Longmont, CO which is basically Boulder-east and was so enthralled with Alan Gregory, Sam Purdy and their friends that I couldn’t put any of them down. The same goes today – I loved this book.

I have read all of Stephen White’s novels. I started when I lived In Longmont, CO which is basically Boulder-east and was so enthralled with Alan Gregory, Sam Purdy and their friends that I couldn’t put any of them down. The same goes today – I loved this book.
Alan, psychologist, therapist, husband, father and friend is about to find out all sorts of interesting thing about several folk in his life. He knows that Lauren, his wife, is a top-notch lawyer for the Boulder DA’s office. He knows that his best friend Sam the cop is hiding something major. His partner, Diane, who has had several bad years; is coming apart at the seams. Not that she doesn’t have reasons, but…..
And then in walk two new patients: Amanda who has a background no one would want and Rick who is not at all who he seems to be. He’s a lot more worrisome. Amanda’s brother passed away from cancer and she helped ease his pain. Rick (aka Comadoe – you’d have to read it) apparently overheard a conversation while in a semi-coma that links Sam and maybe Alan to a murder in another town. Did Sam do it? Maybe. Did Alan know about it? Yep. Did Alan know Sam took Lauren’s car? Not bloody likely!
The ease with which Stephen White comes up with plots worries me a bit. Not many are this good all of the time. He is. The part that worried me before I read this story was that this is the second to the last book about Boulder, Alan and Sam. We all know good things come to an end but – dammitt – I really liked these. And you will really love this one!

Line of Fire is the 19th out of an imagined 20 novels in a series
featuring Boulder shrink Alan Gregory. One more book is to complete the
series. It can't come too soon after reading Line of Fire. The author
has his major characters complicit in a crime that defies belief,
another major character is involved in a shocking crime, and a lovable
character meets an unwarranted end. Why not just throw in the kitchen
sink, too? Much of the book is spent detailing one character's sexual
history as she comes for therapy. Given that she is a sex worker, it
provides some titillating material but nothing that we needed in the
novel. Oh, did I mention the infidelity of one of the character's? I
guess that was the kitchen sink. Anyway, an absurd novel that only
promises to become truly ludicrous in the 20th and gratefully last book.
