Take a character as multi-dimensional as Tony Soprano. Pair him with a mother and daughter in peril and on the run. Add a clinical psychologist tasked with helping them negotiate their new lives - a program with an agenda all its own - and the result is a book that Stephen White's peers are already calling "one of the best thrillers you will ever read" (William Bernhardt) and "an exciting ride through a dark region of law enforcement." (Peter Abrahams). When New Orleans District Attorney Kirsten Lord and her nine-year-old daughter are imperiled by a chillingly believable death threat, Lord has no other choice but to accept the Witness Protection Program's offer to hide them in Boulder, Colorado. There, they meet program veteran Carl Luppo, a solitary mob hit man who is tormented by his former life and has nothing but time for regret. Sensing that Lord and her daughter's safety has been compromised, Luppo takes on the role of sentinel, fully realizing this might be his last shot at redemption. While Lord suspects that Luppo's warnings about the program's dark side are for her own protection and that she should believe the former assassin's instincts, the only person she can really trust is nine-years-old.

    " My first 5 star rating. I really enjoyed this book. I understand one of the main characters has a recurring role in the author's next book I am reading. The character is Dr. Alan Gregory and the book is "Warning Signs.' I hope it is as good as "The Program." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie Dykhouse | 2/11/2014

    " I really enjoy this Allen Gregory series. Well written and holds your interest! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gen | 2/2/2014

    " This kept me guessing for a while. You think you know but are quite sure until the end. A good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim Stennett | 2/1/2014

    " Second half is better than first half, but has holes big enough to drive the proverbial truck through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Lorenzetti | 1/19/2014

    " well written, fast moving, lots of local references to Boulder area for those who live around here "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 1/12/2014

    " Couldn't finish. Too intense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 12/29/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was my first experience with the author Stephen White. I will definitely read the rest of the Alan Gregory series starting with book one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chloe40 | 11/26/2013

    " Don felt it was suspenseful and well written.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kcastro | 10/4/2013

    " Well written. Occasional brief TMI. I'd consider reading more by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 9/20/2013

    " fun read, not exactly pulitzer prize winning writing, but most of the book takes place in Boulder, CO, so it was fun to read and recognize places I've been. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 8/14/2013

    " I thought this was very interesting-- one of the best of Stephen White's I've read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 5/16/2013

    " Good for a Stephen White novel...every once in a while you have to go back to something predictable and mindless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 5/4/2013

    " Not bad. The ending was pretty obvious, but still a good read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Oldesq | 3/24/2013

    " A classic Alan Gregory story with the emphasis on another main character. Nobody is all good or all bad and the witness protection program can be friend or foe to those lost in its bureaucracy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noreen Ackerman | 11/19/2012

    " I truly enjoy Stephen White's plot & writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 9/18/2012

    " These just keep getting better. Very strong secondary characters in this story of a woman in the Witness Protection program. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 3/24/2012

    " This is a great one. Really hitting his stride. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 1/12/2012

    " Good, quick, easy read. I've read this one twice, but that may be mostly because I always seem to find it first when looking for something to veg on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 11/10/2011

    " Alan Gregory is counseling people in the witness protection program, only what if one needs protection from the marshals running the program. This story is more about the protectee, Kristin, then Dr. Gregory. Not his best but still entertaining and engaging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jolene | 6/4/2011

    " I have probably read every book written by Stephen White. They are good 'PLANE' or 'BEACH' books. This is one of my favorites and I actually read it twice because I was missing having new Stephen White books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 4/24/2011

    " While I have read a number of Stephen White's books I find his character Alan Gregory a little whiny and not real likeable. I did enjoy this book because it was from the perspective of one of his clients. It was suspenseful and exciting until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Page | 4/24/2011

    " A pretty good read; held my interest when I was in the mood to be entertained. Lots of plot twists & turns, but I did not particularly fall in love with any of the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 4/3/2011

    " Very good book - I really like the books with Alan Gregory(psychologist). I have read several of these and they are all entertaining "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chloe40 | 2/12/2011

    " Don felt it was suspenseful and well written.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chriser123 | 12/30/2010

    " I like Mr. White's work but this was written from a different perspective of another character and I wasn't as interested in it as I have been in his other works. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bart | 7/3/2010

    " Started off a bit messy in the beginning, and didn't manage to really grasp my full attention later on. It's a nice story, nevertheless, and you can feel the main characters greatest emotions.

    The plot, I thought, was pretty silly however. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 4/23/2010

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was my first experience with the author Stephen White. I will definitely read the rest of the Alan Gregory series starting with book one. "

    " Another in the Dr. Alan Gregory series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Oldesq | 1/11/2010

    " A classic Alan Gregory story with the emphasis on another main character. Nobody is all good or all bad and the witness protection program can be friend or foe to those lost in its bureaucracy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Phoebe223 | 10/4/2009

    " I felt sorry for the main character the whole time. Carl the ex-gorilla was a cool character though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kcastro | 10/3/2009

    " Well written. Occasional brief TMI. I'd consider reading more by this author. "

    " Alan Gregory is not the main character in this one, but it is good all the same. "
