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.

Really good oldie..

Listening to "Manner of Death" -- published in 1999 -- now is a delightful reminder of just how good this series was, in the beginning. And how far it fell, before author Stephen White put a merciful end to it a few months ago.

All the characters are here, Lauren with her Multiple Sclerosis in an early stage, neighbor Adrianne, alive, not married yet, no son on the horizon, and of course Officer Sam, with his homespun wisdom, his diets, not to mention his funny accent, so well replicated by narrator Dick Hill, the very fine voice of Alan Gregory.

There's a couple of slimy ex-FBI agents who make you wonder, a sizzling hot former classmate, one of Alan's old flames, who looks for a little while like she might give Lauren a run for her money, there's Emily, the Bouvier, plus a list of characters with walk-on parts who prove interesting... and a plot that holds your attention, minute by minute.

Listening to this book was like a visit with old friends.... I'm sure I'll tune in to it again and again.
