Dry Ice (2007)

"Contemporary cerebral thrillers don't get much better than bestseller White's 15th novel, which deftly combines complex characterization and intricate plotting.  ...Both established fans and those just now discovering the author's gifts will be turning pages late into the night."
— Publishers Weekly, *Starred Review

It's been almost a decade since Alan Gregory's silence put one of his patients into the state hospital rather than the state penitentiary. Now, Michael McClelland, the brilliant, determined killer introduced in Stephen's first novel, Privileged Information, has walked away from the Colorado State Mental Hospital — and he's coming after Alan Gregory's family. The timing couldn't be deadlier — like a cornered animal, Alan is in a deeply vulnerable state, facing severe doubts about his professional life, his marriage, and his own psyche. And McClelland holds the most powerful weapons of all: secrets from Alan's past. Secrets Alan thought he had successfully buried years ago. Secrets not even his own wife knows.
     Time is running out as Alan scrambles to outwit his nemesis while confronting each of his worst nightmares. His becomes a captivating psychological journey into the events that forever change us, and the relentless drumbeat of the past.
