For than twenty years in nearly a score of bestselling crime novels New York Times bestselling author Stephen White’s stories of Boulder psychologist Alan Gregory have captivated millions of readers Now Compound Fractures provides a riveting last chapter to the series In Line of Fire the tantalizing prelude to this final book Dr Gregory found himself assailed by danger from every direction as he struggled with circumstances beyond his control Authorities were closing in on Alan and his friend Sam Purdy for their role in a woman’s death years earlier Alan was struggling to deal with the emotional collapse of his longtime friend Diane after she discovered evidence of her husband’s infidelity By the end Compound Fractures is a disappointing end to a series I've generally enjoyed White's narrative strained believability leaving me shaking my head by the book's conclusion The writing seemed rambling to me as if the author had no real plan to offer a satisfying conclusion to the series; rather I felt White was stumbling through a jumble of story lines looking for one with legs If White's goal was to annoy readers with peripheral characters and make Alan Gregory so unlikable that I no longer care to read about him he succeeded

With old characters returning to play one final role in the series White forces avid readers to know their Boulder trivia and Alan Gregory back story to completely understand what's going on With powerful narrative told from numerous perspectives White entertains disappoints and shocks his avid fans all at once And no White novel would be complete without a cliffhanger to drive the reader to posit its solutionWhite infuses all his dry wit into this last novel showing sides to characters avid readers have long come to love but with no follow up possible White's breadcrumbs tend to have a gunpowder feel to them full of explosive admissions and yet highly volatile The choice to tie up all these loose ends appears not to have been White's own though the specifics behind this are muddled in numerous cryptic messages White posted to his site The characters showed great development throughout and the series showed much progress from beginning to end While one may wonder how a score of books could come from the small city of Boulder Colorado White wove many tales tying them all together before tearing them apart in this single novel Surely an explosive end to this two decade long collection of insights into our favourite psycho therapist I admit that the series was one I always looked forward to seeing each summer as the next instalment hit bookshelves Alas while White has his eye set on television I will be a little saddened to know that I've reached the end of it all while White remains active in writing circlesKudos Dr White for your twenty plus years of entertaining us with Alan Gregory and the rest of the cast Choosing a great angle you were able to infuse your personal experiences into your characters while always keeping things fresh and exciting for those who took the time to read them
