Boulder, Colorado psychologist Dr. Alan Gregory finds the recent calm in his life seemingly over.  His friend and therapist partner Diane, who already was emotionally struggling from an abduction several yearsago, cannot cope with a fire that has devastated her home and left her marriage in trouble. 

 

He and his friend Police Detective Sam Purdy try to keep closed the apparent three year old suicide of psychotic J. Winter Brown as an eight years old witness has provided recent evidence that claim a murder occurred.  Compounding problems is a drug dealer learns of their involvement.  Finally a new patient Amanda Bobbie tells Gregory a story that has the psychologist fearing for his family, his friends and his life as the Brown case has gone torrid.

 

The first of the final two-part last Alan Gregory thriller (see The Last Lie and The Siege) is a fabulous tale as the cool doc is no longer calm with his cover-up of his indiscretion surfacing.  The action-packed thrilling storyline is character driven as the audience will feel Gregory’s fears.  With a great cliffhanger involving the hero’s wife setting up the climatic last Gregory caper, fans will enjoy this entry and look forward to the final curtain call.
