Harm's Way (1996)
"Superb… one of the best thrillers of the year…" – The Cleveland Plain Dealer
You think you know someone. You're wrong. You think you know
what loyalty and friendship mean. You're wrong about that, too. Dead wrong.
When Dr. Alan Gregory's good friend Peter Arvin is found bloody and dying on the stage of a
Colorado theatre, suspicion soars that he has become the second victim of a killer whose first prey was discovered amid the elaborate scenery of the road company's production of the Broadway show Miss Saigon.
Alan is immediately asked to respond to two pleas for help: one from the police, who would like a psychological profile of the murderer, and one from Peter's widow, who is desperate to know the meaning of her dead
As Alan struggles to cope with the com- plexities of his new marriage and the shattering personal consequences of his friend's murder, provocative clues lead him down a
trail that winds from the Front Range of the Rockies to the casinos of the Colorado high country and finally to the grandeur outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
His journey takes him deep into
Peter's past and inevitably toward the discovery of harrowing truths about the human heart—about the struggle for survival and the quest for forgiveness—that seem always just out of his reach, obscured
by the smoke of a long-forgotten fire.
