about this item
MISSING PERSONSThe stakes have just been raised for psychologist Alan Gregory: His friend and fellow therapist Hannah Grant has died at the office, mysteriously and suddenly. The police are baffled, leaving another apparent homicide unsolved in Boulder, Colorado. Only Alan has the means to decipher Hannah’s clues, a quest that will take him to Las Vegas and lead him to question the integrity of those closest to him. The clock is ticking as Alan tracks one of Hannah’s most elusive patients; has she been kidnapped, or is she a runaway? The answers to both cases may be locked in the mind of a patient he has been treating for a schizoid personality disorder. In a maze of dilemmas that could cost him his career, or his life, Alan takes a bold risk that will have listeners racing to the stunning conclusion of Missing Persons.
KILL METhrow out everything you think you know about twists, turns, and surprises. Get ready for the next big thing. Get ready to meet the Death Angels. We’ve all been there. A loved one or a dear friend becomes desperately ill or is tragically injured. Someone – maybe even you – says, "If that ever happens to me, I wish someone would just...kill me." What if you could choose when to die? But once you decide, you can’t change your mind. Ever. No matter what. Welcome to the next step in the evolution of suspense fiction, to an in-your-face/what-would-you-do? topical thriller. Kill Me is a brilliantly conceived roller-coaster ride that zeros in on some of the most contentious issues of our time, the human yearning for connection between the choices we make about our lives and deaths. Kill Me brings Alan Gregory face-to-face with the most challenging case of his career. As always, White’s characters are indelible and the dialogue is dead-on, but Kill Me is fresh and thought provoking in a way that’s so uncommon in crime fiction. Kill Me delivers on all the promise of White’s earlier work and then raises the bar in an unforgettably inventive tale of life and death. This is the book that you won’t be able to put down, but more to the point, this is the book that won’t go away. Listeners will be asking each other: "What would you do?""If you could sign up – really – would you?"
