In The Last Lie, White returns to his Alan Gregory series
roots with the popular characters and Boulder setting that
first launched him onto the bestseller lists and attracted
legions of fiercely loyal fans.
Shortly after Alan and Lauren welcome their affluent new
neighbors â€” a legal legend in women's rights law and his
beautiful wife â€” the couple hosts a housewarming party that
ends in quiet disaster. One of their guests, a young widow,
elects to spend the night after indulging in too much wine,
only to wake the next morning with no memory beyond getting
ready for bed. Was she drugged? Raped?
Lauren, a deputy district attorney, and detective Sam Purdy
are both privy to facts they can't share with Alan, but Alan
soon discovers that he has a most unusual perspective into
what truly happened after the housewarming. Before Alan can
discover all the pieces to the puzzle, an important witness
to the events is murdered. Alan fears that other witnesses â€”
people he loves â€” will be next.
