Private Practices Reviews

"White weaves a near-flawless web of evil, and his prose is as smooth and fast as a downhill slalom, with enough twists and jumps to keep it interesting." –  Publisher's Weekly

"Readers... will relish the superb action scenes and many richly drawn characters—from MS stricken Lauren to what turns out to be several villains to, above all, Gregory himself, who tells his tale in a mix of bewilderment, self-doubt, and bravado that's simply fetching…Gregory's eager and ever-appealing analysis of the whacked-out action and its players makes it all worthwhile.  Book us for another session, please."  –  Kirkus Reviews

"Intriguing…this psycho-thriller provides solid, satisfying entertainment."  –  The San Diego Union-Tribune

"…the best thrillers now being written by a psychologist-turned-mystery- writer are Stephen White's novels featuring Dr. Alan Gregory.  Despite the complex mystery, "Private Practices" is really a poignant novel…White is a sensational writer, and I wish Dr. Alan Gregory a long, successfully practice.  Mystery lovers should consult him at their earliest convenience."  –  The Flint Journal

"This is a slick, smart novel with plenty of Colorado colour and intriguing characters." –  The Globe and Mail

"Detective writing at its best."  –  West Coast Reviews of Books

"A tense, gripping psychological thriller…builds suspense to the breaking point." –  Grounds for Murder

"Enough criminal behavior to fuel a minor crime wave…killer, conspiracies, child abuse, pornography…strong."  –  Mostly Murder

"First-rate…brutal killings with moral and ethical questions asked and answered…well worth your time."  –  Hartford Courant

"Not only a terrific whodunit, it's a first-rate 'whydunit' as well."  –  Susan Isaacs

"Engrossing…and its likable protagonist, Dr. Alan Gregory, is that rarity in mystery fiction, a whole man, with strengths and weaknesses, flairs and foibles.  Stephen White is a first-rate writer."  –  Aaron Elkins

"An intriguing plot and readable characters…it'll keep you guessing till the end."  –  Phillip Margolin

"A can't miss read.  The hero is a psychologist in this dandy mystery yarn, with great inter-woven characters and all of it's believable." –  Larry King
