Publisher's Summary

“Heart-stopping suspense.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
The deaths of six men and women appeared to be bizarre accidents - until Dr. Alan Gregory discovered the chilling link. Years before, each was involved in the psychology and psychiatry training program at the University of Colorado. And each was the victim of an ingeniously planned, brilliantly executed murder. Now only two alumni survive: Dr. Gregory and Dr. Sawyer Sackett, a woman he once loved. And as the past resurfaces in ways as intimate as they are terrifying, Alan and Sawyer are plunged into the private nightmare of a killer who knows about the terrifying power of mind games…
“Pulls readers along like a steam train…. Don’t crack this thing unless there’s nothing else to do, because once you get started nothing else is going to get done.” (Denver Post)

Great Gregory!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. This was a very good Alan Gregory book. Very well written and although you already know he's going to survive for the next book the plot was not as predictable as some of the other books. There were moments I thought the heroine was possibly the protagonist. This book had multiple possible endings and the listener doesn't actually find out until almost the end.


What other book might you compare Manner of Death to and why?

The other Alan Gregory books for obvious reasons.


What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

Dick Hill's performance was fantastic as always.


Any additional comments?

Highly recommend this book. I think this is one of Stephen White's better books. Certainly worth the $ or credit with over 15 hours of listening time. I sometimes find this authors attention to details such as preparation and description of food or brand of clothing with style, cut, fit and color to be a little monotonous but not so much in this book. Although still descriptive not as much as in some of his other books. All in all a very enjoyable listen.

Good enough back story

Good enough back story to make up for a loose disjointed main theme and some characters whose major roles seem to either be stereotypically eccentric or an irritant. The main theme is a patient from Alan Gregory's intern days seems to be killing the staff from the teaching hospital where they'd worked. That includes his first love Dr. Sawyer Sackett another of the interns from the class of 82; the portions of the book relating to them and to that period of time are excellent. As are the pages dedicated to D.B. Cooper and the now mythic story of the 1973 hijacking and his subsequent escape. Added to that is the mystery of his disappearance; then the uncovering of a portion of the money from a riverbank twenty (?) years later; the only bills ever recovered from the ransom.
Unfortunately the main story has a couple of eccentric ex-FBI agents and the ever irritating Lauren Crowder; Alan's wife and Susan Silverman's principle competition as the most unlikable fictional character in existence. Together with the vague, wandering narrative and the lack of a reasonable motive for the killer's obsession drops the book to four stars. It's still worth the credit particularly if you're a reader of listener of the series.
