Dry ice [compact disc] : [a novel]
Stephen White
Adult Fiction WHITE

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Contemporary cerebral thrillers don't get much better than bestseller White's 15th novel (after Kill Me), which deftly combines complex characterization and intricate plotting. White's debut novel, Privileged Information, introduced Boulder, Colo., psychologist Alan Gregory and the clever but deadly Michael McClelland, a former meteorologist turned killer, whose rampage almost cost Gregory and his wife, Lauren, their lives. In this sequel, while Lauren, a local prosecutor, is absorbed in a sensitive grand jury probe that represents her best chance to demonstrate that she can function despite her MS, Gregory learns that McClelland has escaped from custody and has devised a devious, multilayered revenge scheme against everyone he holds responsible for his incarceration. Almost overnight, Gregory finds his routine existence turned into a Hitchcockian nightmare. Suspected of several murders, he can trust no one. Both established fans and those just now discovering the author's gifts will be turning pages late into the night. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Psychologist Alan Gregory's nemesis, psychotic killer Michael McClelland (who first appeared in White's Privileged Information), has escaped from a mental hospital and is looking for Alan and his family. Alan's patient Kol Cruz, covered in blood, washes up in the new water sculpture and bleeds all over the newfound ambience of the waiting room that Alan's partner, Diane, has been redesigning. Alan's marriage to his prosecuting attorney wife is in trouble, and his best buddy from the Boulder police force can't talk to Alan since he's working on a grand jury investigation with Alan's spouse. Dick Hill gives an excellent reading of an intense psychological thriller that delves into perceptions, appearances, and the keeping and hiding of secrets. All of this takes place in realistically detailed and described locations throughout contemporary Colorado. Adult language and situations, psychological intimidation, and violence appropriate to the genre are all included. Highly recommended for mystery collections.-Cliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., OH (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
