Shortly after Alan and Lauren welcome their affluent new neighbors—a legend in women’s rights law and his beautiful wife—the couple hosts a housewarming party that ends in quiet disaster. One guest, a young widow, elects to spend the night after indulging in too much wine, only to wake the next morning with no memory beyond getting ready for bed. Aware that something went terribly wrong, she goes to the police, starting a chain of events that will have devastating consequences for everyone involved.

A national celebrity is soon accused of rape—with eerie similarities to another notorious Colorado case. Lauren, a deputy DA, and detective Sam Purdy both learn facts they can’t share with Alan, but Alan discovers that he has a most unusual perspective into what truly happened after the housewarming. Before he can decipher the puzzle, a crucial witness is murdered. Alan fears that other witnesses—people he loves—could be next.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret Wilde | 2/18/2014

    " This is another of my favorite authors. Stephen White is a psychologist who writes about a psychologist in Boulder, CO. His cast of characters is similar to those of Jonathan Kellerman, but that's where the similarity ends. His main character is on occasion consulted by his Boulder police officer friend, but often gets involved with criminal cases through his innate curiosity. All of the characters have a lot of depth with good and bad things happening in their lives. Boulder is a small city with all of its leanings, but is rapidly becoming more cosmopolitan as it gains favor from the moneyed folks, causing a chism in live styles of its citizenry. Stephen incorporates this changing culture into his plots and character angst. He also changes his venue and writes from different perspectives, One book was written in the first person,causing some real confusion about the story line from the start. It was awhile before the reader got the true picture of what was going on - kind of mystery within a mystery. I do highly recommend this writer for anyone who likes mysteries and serial characters. "

    " 3.5 stars. Another one of his enjoyable psychological thrillers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chriser123 Dittman | 2/4/2014

    " Once again I read an "old friend". After reading the required books for book club it's nice to read a book that has familiar characters. always enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 2/2/2014

    " I really like Stephen White and he did not disappoint. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 1/26/2014

    " Stephen White is back to form (the last couple of outings have disappointed me a little)! Sadly, I now am homesick for Boulder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 1/18/2014

    " This book was one I ended up staying up half the night to finish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah Sayre | 1/18/2014

    " I usually can't put his books down but this one never really grabbed me. Maybe not enough suspense, not sure. Hoping the next one is better! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christi Barth | 1/11/2014

    " While this author is always, and will always be an auto-buy for me, this one was a tad weaker. He seemed to get caught up in the sound of his own voice a bit. Beautifully written, but the story stagnated in a few places. Nevertheless, a good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/4/2014

    " One of his more introspective plots - this book is less about action and more reflective of the damage and influence of untruths. Stephen White fans may not enjoy this book as much as his last, The Siege, which was tautly suspenseful. The Last Lie has it's own kind of suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler | 12/27/2013

    " Read this one because it takes place in Boulder, with a lot of it in the neighborhood where I grew up. Better than I thought it would be, and made me miss Boulder. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lillian | 12/10/2013

    " I listened to this on CD and while I enjoy the Colorado setting of Stephen White's books, it annoyed me that the narrator mispronounced Leadville as 'leed-ville' and has a hint of a Jersey accent. Somehow it detracted from the story for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ben Hamilton | 12/6/2013

    " Just couldn't get into this book. Story was slow and i want to know why people are still friends with main character. Only bad things happen when you are friends with him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb G | 11/15/2013

    " Good read. Typical Stephen White/Alan Gregory tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Hanscom | 5/13/2013

    " A good, intricate plot, though a little over-explanatory toward the very end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ray | 1/3/2013

    " Love this series and really liked this one. Through the events and during conversations in the book, White takes on lawyer wizards and shows how they do not do public good by back room deals that skirt justice. Bravo, Mr. White. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne-Marie | 12/15/2012

    " I like the character Alan Gregory. I just wish that I hadn't bought his most recent book in the series. there are 18 books with this character. I think I may go back and get the 1st few and see if I like the way the author writes more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 5/2/2012

    " I normally like the Alan Gregory mysteries a lot, but this one was a bit convoluted for my taste. It was an OK book, but not as good as Stephen White's other offerings. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christina | 3/12/2012

    " Oh Stephen, what happened to your writing? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryellen Woodside | 2/17/2012

    " I always enjoy White's Alan Gregory books. This one is no exception. Gregory has new neighbors and on the night of their house warming party a guest claims she was raped bu the host. White has a lot to say about our criminal justice system and lawyers. Interesting reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Teresa | 1/10/2012

    " Just couldn't get into this book...... "

    " Sam got a little to chatty for my taste in this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 7/3/2011

    " I am a total fan of Stephen White, I don't even claim to be objective at all...read it in a day...love the fact I know all the locales, being a CU alum and a frequent visitor to Boulder, plus I am an addict of this genre of thrillers...I can only say I look forward to the next one! "

    " I like the character Alan Gregory. I just wish that I hadn't bought his most recent book in the series. there are 18 books with this character. I think I may go back and get the 1st few and see if I like the way the author writes more. "

    " My favorite author. A great Sunday read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susie | 3/24/2011

    " this was typical Stephen white storytelling. I like the twists and turns and how he hints at the conclusion but gives you enough surprises so you kinda know where he's going but the journey is not predictable. I also enjoy the complexities he adds to the hero's personal relationships. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 3/23/2011

    " I love Stephen White novels because they take place in Boulder with a main character who is a smart & very human clinical psychologist. "

    " I haven't read any Alan Gregory lately. I wonder if I missed some---it seemed like it. I did listen to it rather than read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 2/5/2011

    " What can I say? I always enjoy the books in this series. This one was fine, as usual. It's nice to meet a shrink with problems. "
