Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Hypnotically absorbing."
-Orlando Sentinel

"Moves at light speed."
-Midwest Book Review

Psychologist Alan Gregory returns in this suspenseful stand-alone follow-up to Dry Ice. This time, the good doctor must confront the continuing ramifications of a Grand Canyon disappearance that occurred several years ago. As Dr. Gregory probes deeper, past deeds and present dangers intertwine, threatening him even further as he pieces together the troubling puzzle. A brain-stimulating thriller with a notably sympathetic main character.
Library Journal

In his 16th novel, White (Missing Persons) deepens his exploration of the psyches of the characters in his crime fiction series involving Colorado psychologist Alan Gregory, his family, and his friends. White's 15-year practice in clinical psychology lends credence to descriptions of his characters' motivations, perceptions, and reactions. Thoughtful listeners will likely find Alan's psychological musings involving and rewarding, especially as a seeming midlife crisis forces him to reassess his relationships. We get the 360° view: Alan's insights into himself and into others' impulses, along with commentary on his failed first marriage and not-so-gentle criticisms from friend Sam Purdy. White combines a fascinating murder mystery with wonderful descriptions of Colorado, Southern California, and New York. Read by Dick Hill, this is a well-engineered, well-directed audiobook that will keep the listener's attention; very highly recommended for adult crime fiction and mystery collections. [White is a New York Times best-selling author; Dead Time is also available as downloadable audio from Audible.com.-Ed.]
