Series: #2 in the Dr. Alan Gregory Series
Publication Date: 1993
Challenges: Medical Mystery 2008 Challenge #1
I really enjoyed this second Dr. Alan Gregory book. He’s a psychologist in Boulder, Colorado. As the book opens, there’s a hostage situation going horribly wrong right in the office Dr. Gregory shares with his friend and colleague Diane Estevez. Before long the reader is following many different story lines and many characters and trying to figure out how all of this is going to intersect because you just know it has to somehow.
The side stories of Alan and his friends and colleagues continue to develop and evolve from the storylines started in the first book in the series (Privileged Information). Because of that, it’s not a series that I’d want to read out of order.
This one was complex and although I figured some things out pretty early, other things kept me guessing until near the end. I read the first of this series for last year’s Medical Mystery Challenge, and the second for this year. I doubt I’ll wait another year to read the next book in the series.
