Overview

Warning Signs by Stephen White, Dick Hill

What happens when a psychologist enters the darkness of the criminal mind?

When a tormented killer takes revenge on an unsuspecting city?

When the warning signs come too late?

These are the provocative issues at the heart of Warning Signs, Stephen White’s explosive new novel of psychological suspense. White’s crackling novels have earned widespread acclaim as “superior psychological thrillers” (Chicago Tribune) that are “taut, breathless, and mesmerizing” (The Denver Post) and “sinister and scary” (The New York Times Book Review). Now the New York Times bestselling author returns with a story that catapults clinical psychologist Alan Gregory into the blistering heat of a crime wave that is sweeping the city–and locks him in the ethical dilemma of his career.


Warning Signs

The grisly slaying shatters the quiet of a residential neighborhood in the foothills of the Rockies. The battered body of Boulder County District Attorney Royal Peterson lies amid shards of broken pottery while his wife sleeps upstairs. Within hours, a homicide detective is the prime suspect in the brutal death that will send shock waves through the city–and reverberate in the professional and personal life of Alan Gregory.

Alan knew Roy Peterson. Lauren, his wife, a prosecutor in the DA’s office, worked under Peterson for years. And while Lauren
contemplates taking on the defense of the accused cop, Alan meets with a new patient. Almost from the moment Naomi Bigg starts talking, warning bells go off in Alan’s mind. A terrified mother with an explosive secret, Naomi tests the limits of doctor-patient confidentiality when her privileged exchanges convince Alan that a crime is about to be committed. But when he uncovers a shocking link to the Peterson slaying, Alan finds himself riding the slippery slope between professional judgment and personal responsibility as he struggles to protect his patient while probing the mind of a deeply troubled teenager.

As violence erupts throughout the city–and a pattern of vengeance becomes chillingly clear–Alan is plunged into a desperate manhunt for a killer whose trail of rage winds all the way up to the Colorado Supreme Court. As the minutes tick down in a brilliantly conceived vendetta that targets the guilty and the innocent alike, Warning Signs races to a harrowing climax in which the lives of hundreds hang in the balance. A brilliant exploration of the fears and passions that war within each of us, Warning Signs is vintage White: taut, penetrating–utterly terrifying.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are very interesting and I found myself really caring about them. However, I knock it down one star because I suspect a psychologist would've struggled a bit more with the confidentiality dilemma than he did in this book. (I am a therapist myself and found Dr. Gregory's reaction a bit simple and a little too convenient.) However, because the author's writing style makes this a very enjoyable read, I have passed it on to friends - I can't give it a higher recommendation than that.

This book was an excellent work of fiction that had real headlines and tragedies worked in. I would recommend this book to anyone, as a matter of fact, my son is doing a book report on it for a school project. Keep up the GREAT work Mr. White.

Dr. Alan Gregory is a clinical psychologist with a thriving practice and his wife Lauren is an assistant district attorney in Boulder, Colorado. Both Alan and Lauren are renown in their respective fields and have handled many high profile cases sometimes even working together. Lauren is just about to go back to work from maternity leave when she is asked to extend her leave and go to work as a defense attorney for another high profile case.

The Boulder District Attorney Royal Peterson is found murdered in his home. Someone used a blunt instrument to smash the victim¿s skull. Preliminary evidence points to Detective Lucy Tanner, so her partner Sam Purdy wants the best lawyer to handle her case. Alan and Lauren recommend Cozy Maitland, who in turn wants Lauren to serve as second chair for him. Now that the team is on board in case Lucy is arrested, the suspect is kidnapped by an angry young man intending to get his message across to the public by committing some very violent crimes.

WARNING SIGNS is an absorbing legal thriller and police procedural that shows what goes into creating an ugly situation such as Columbine. Alan Gregory, through his professional skills, gives the police (and the audience) some alarming insights into what motivates a teenager to kill and how he justifies it to himself. The actual who-done-it, while compelling, takes a backseat to the frightening teenage sub-plot.

I love Stephen White. He makes it so easy to identify with all of the characters, good or bad. I had a real hard time putting this book down. I have really enjoyed reading the all of the Alan Gregory novels in order, starting with privileged information. The main characters are so interesting.
