The Program Reviews

"You'll not read a more suspenseful or better-crafted novel this year than Stephen White's The Program. ...The Program is the finest work thus far from an author whose career has progressed from very good to virtuoso." – The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"[White] remains one of those authors whose ear for dialogue makes his novels ring with reality... With Kirsten...White has created a beguiling new character with just the right mix of moxie and vulnerability." – The Denver Post

"an incisive, psychologically acute thriller that successfully illuminates a little-known corner of the criminal justice system. It clearly represents a large step forward for a gifted, underrated writer." – Editorial Review,

"...a multidimensional, complex, and vividly realized novel. Long overdue for a place high on the bestseller list, White may well break out with this one." – Editorial Review,

"The plotting in this mystery is so wonderful that I did not want the book to end... Stephen White's been on my "ten best" list for a long time and with THE PROGRAM, he solidifies his place in my estimation as a writer offering some of the meatiest, most interesting mysteries you can find." – About.Com Mysteries

"All of the Alan Gregory novels have been spellbinding, but with THE PROGRAM, Stephen White rises to the top ranks of modern crime fiction.  Breakneck plotting combined with penetrating psychological insight make this book an unforgettable experience.  This is one of the best thrillers you will ever read." – William Bernhardt, bestselling author of Silent Justice and the forthcoming Murder One

"A page-turner and a sharp, compelling portrait of a woman and daughter in crisis." – Iris Johansen, bestselling author of The Search, The Killing Game, and And Then You Die
