I turned the little black-and-white TV in the kitchen to mute so I could monitor the larger world for further intrusions into my peace at the same time I was caramelizing some onions for a frittata. It appeared that Channel 4 was doing a piece about the autumn leaves. The story lost a lot of its luster in black-and-white. Incongruously, I managed to get distracted.

One of the reasons I like Stephen White's book so much is his continuity of characters, and his development of characters.

White is so good at pumping up menace that some readers will forgive the loose ends and high-energy, low-rationality windup. Not all of them, though.

I wanted to set one of my upcoming stories in Boulder, Colorado, so I was eager to lap up books by authors set in this region that did a good job with making the environment and surroundings a prominent character in the story. And, of course, if I could get a good tale out of the mix, all the better. Beats reading dry atlases, farm and weather reports, and filtering through local news any day, to say nothing of toying with Google Maps. On the above scores, Manner of Death didn’t disappoint. I didn’t feel as transported to the region as I might in a Susan Dunlap tale, who brings Berkeley, California to life and makes the region that much more prominent of a character in her stories, but then again, that’s Berkeley, California, which is a town that doesn’t take to blending into the background all that well; you’re lucky if it doesn’t end up being the star, far less a merely prominent character. But I did get a fairly decent sense of the rugged Rocky Mountain lifestyle, and an even larger swath of the area than I bargained for (all pluses to my thinking.)

As to the story itself, I found the mixed cocktail of a practicing psychologist (the male lead) and his wife (an attorney) quite infectious. I also loved the hook in the premise of the person you’re investigating being the one who’s coming after you! While I’ve read more pulse-bounding, faster moving thrillers, I will revisit this duo that is paired in any number of books in the future.
The book gets off to a good start with a plot that has promise. So, you plunge into the book hoping that the promise delivers. White has an ability to keep you involved with a fast-moving plot. But as the book goes on, you start to tire and start flipping pages. Because things get more unbelieveable and the characters -- all of whom are of above-average intelligence -- begin to do incredibly stupid things which, of course, get them into trouble. But White's biggest sin is that he takes away the fun of a thriller. When you get to the end you find that the denouement has little to do with most of the earlier part of book, which leaves the reader terribly unsatisfied. Oh well, at least White did not use this book to pound the reader over the head with one of his boring pet peeves, like his hatred for Mormons or managed health care people. White could be a great writer if only he'd spend a little more time developing plots and characters that are realistic and creating real suspense. His books are like music that has melody and harmony, but no rhythm. He could do a lot better.
I've now read almost all of the Alan Gregory series, and have liked most of them. This one didn't do it for me. White has said that the next Gregory novel will be the last, and I think that's a wise choice on his part.

I particularly didn't like his character development of the ultimate villain, probably because he chose to develop that character in just a few pages at the end of the book.

On a side note, if you're new to Stephen White, I suggest you try to read this series in order. White has a nasty habit, in his later books, of lengthy references to characters and events from earlier books. Yes, some authors do that, but White seems to do it more than most, and I find it annoying.
"Adrienne's tomatoes froze to death the same night that Arnie Dresser did..."

Seems like a strange way to start a book. From the previous books in the series we know who Adrienne is. But we have no idea about Arnie Dresser. Alan then narrates the story and we learn that Arnie was a psychiatric resident at the same time that Alan did his residency. I won't give any more away, but the plot starts and doesn't slow down. We also learn of a former love interest for a then young Alan Gregory, and the impact that dealing with her will have on his current marriage with Lauren. Two former FBI agents are also introduced and they will play a prominent role in the next book of the series, "Cold Case."

Yet another fine installment in the series....
Alan Gregory and his colleagues from days gone by are being hunted and killed in various ways.
Stephen White is my favorite author and once again, he delivered. The characters in this book have been well developed and there is always a surprise around the corner that comes out of nowhere!
The first half of this story was a little slow, but the pace picked up considerably by the half way point. The emergency plane landing was absolutely breath stopping. White is an expert with characterization and these characters were very colorful. I was glad to see Lauren play a bigger role in this story. Once the plot was established, the suspense was well maintained to a satisfying conclusion. An enjoyable read.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book...I've never been disappointed in an Alan Gregory book, although I must admit this one took a little more concentration because so many characters were involved. I would definitely recommend it to my mystery-loving friends.
