For more than twenty years, in nearly a score of bestselling
crime novels, New York Times bestselling author Stephen
WhiteÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s stories of Boulder psychologist Alan Gregory have
captivated millions of readers. Now Compound Fractures
provides a riveting last chapter to the series.
In Line of Fire, the tantalizing prelude to this final book,
Dr. Gregory found himself assailed by danger from every
direction as he struggled with circumstances beyond his
control. Authorities were closing in on Alan and his friend
Sam Purdy for their role in a womanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s death years earlier.
Alan was struggling to deal with the emotional collapse of
his longtime friend Diane after she discovered evidence of
her husbandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s infidelity.
By the end, AlanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s personal life and his career were in
danger of complete collapse.
But Line of Fire merely set the stage. In Compound
Fractures, the explosive conclusion to the decades-long
saga, Alan is forced to acknowledge that the perils that may
bring him to his knees are not the dangers he recognizes,
nor are they orchestrated by the nemesis he has long feared.
Instead he is confronted by unexpected threats from
unanticipated adversaries and by intimate betrayal from
those who have been closest to him. He is compelled to
reconsider what he has long believed about trust and about
love while he is trying to cope with overwhelming loss and
To protect himself he must revisit the cruel ethical dilemma
that turned his life upside down as a young psychologist. He
has to judge whether the people reentering his life after
long absences are friends or foes. He has to make sense of
echoes of distant tragedies while he decides if there is
anyone he can really trust. Mostly, as the clock ticks down,
he must solve a deadly mystery in Eldorado Springs that has
been brewing for more than a decade.
At times full of pathos, at other times replete with
WhiteÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s distinctive wry humor, Compound Fractures delivers
the entrancing characters, the suspense, the intricately
plotted storylines, and the unexpected twists that readers
have come to expect.
Compound Fractures promises to be a jaw-dropping and
satisfying last act in StephenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s beloved series.
