It is a new twist (kinda) on the usual Dr. Gregory story. Instead of a patient who is tangentially connected to Alan, It is Alan and his pal, the police officer. The story had its unsual great mix of characters from different walks of life ( a specialty of this author) and the various twists and turns ( another specialty) but the total burden of the stuff he keeps from his wife and how much Alan has to go through to get to the climax of the story was frigging endless. Never did I want an end to come more quickly in an audio book. I usually want my money's worth, but this time I felt the end was near but someone kept snatching it away. That being said - don't want this review to mess up the ending for others - I truly didn't see it coming and it was a surprise ending.
So how to do I go back to my headline? Why would I miss "the crazy patients"? Be-
cause this time, as it is Alan with the problem, the quess work is gone. True, other characters intervene and make for surprises but mostly I found the window to the story from Alan's point of view ruining the story. I want to go back to analyzing each word of the patients to figure out how they will impact on the story.
Dick Hill is an amazing reader and I will continue to read this author, but just like most people my age, I crave the good old days...

This was a fantastic Alan Gregory story. The best I've read. It starts with something new (or at least something I don't recall from previous books) about the past involving Sam and Alan. A crime from a few years ago. Just when things seem to be going so well for Alan and Lauren and their two kids. The different threads of the crime, Diane & Raul, Alan's new clients, and Lauren's involvement really came together in a way I simply couldn't predict. Fantastic. I'm interested to see what happens in the future. Has Sam crossed a dangerous line for a police detective? What does the future hold for the Gregory family? What about the two guys in prison? Are they a future threat for Alan and Sam? I can't wait for the next one.
