    Stephen White is a really excellent writer This book in the series continues developing Dr Gregory's character and relationship with his family and friends It is a psychological than an action thriller though there are still dead bodies suspense and tension and a crazy killer I liked the psychological term sublimation which means taking a traumatic life shattering event in your life and changing it into something positive that you can live with I thought Dry Ice was going to be about secrets but instead it was about transforming traumatic events which are usually secrets into positive outcomes The title Dry Ice is an example in the physical world of sublimation changing from one state to another without melting in the process and the story itself is an example of Dr Gregory's attempts to go through a process of becoming dry ice Dr Gregory's angst and downward spiraling is a bit too pessimistic for my tastes but I suspect that given Stephen White's clinical background this wallowing in self pity is not exaggerated The book was still an excellent story and very thought provoking if a bit on the dark side I admit I prefer strong optimistic good characters

    I've had the hardcover on my shelf for years But driving home from Christmas this year I reached back into the bag of audio books I carry in the car and pulled this one out I didn't even remember I had itI enjoyed it It harked back to the first book so I was willing to read it out of order Since I'm still stuck on #3 Higher Authority◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆101213Re listened to this one on my way back from NC by the way that trip was a bust with the National Forest still closed The road might have been open I didn't really look I like to go to the fish hatchery and that wouldn't have been open One of the hotels filed an injunction and the judge told him to openAnyway this was a good refresher for Line of Fire which I have been far too slow to read There were story lines I'd forgotten But in order to clear some of them up I may have to go back a few books

    Alan Gregory’s life seems to be falling apart He’s drinking too much His wife is distant A patient of his psychiatric practice has just hanged herself and he bungled the sessions enough not to even realize her gender A psychopath he’d helped put away years before has escaped and seems to be stalking himYou know where this is going don’t you? A scary drawn out conclusion probably in a dark basement cherry on topped with some extreme and innovative violence right? Well no The psychopath turns himself in midway thru the book and the violence at the end takes place offstage Author Stephen White takes this in a different direction where the suspense becomes the keeping or release of secrets which all his characters seem to ownThis is the 15th book in this series tho the first for me Continuingcharacters seem to be the bane of long series and and the cast here ispretty large White bravely kills one of them off here in a coda thatfeels tacked onWhite’s POV character Alan Gregory is so self aware and psychologically astute that it’s a little hard to believe he let his life and marriage fall into such a state Still White’s focus on his characters’ interior lives is a welcome departure for the genre The title is a cool metaphor too Sublimation is both a psychological mechanism for coping with trauma and the physical process of going directly from a solid state to a gaseous without melting into a liuid Like dry ice does JohnFrom ICPL Staff Picks Blog

    IMHO not one of White's better books in the series; the worst I've read yet The plot has the potential for real pulse uickening suspense but for some reason White chooses to kill it with over analysis This book reminds us that White is a psychologist at every possible turn almost like going with White to his own mental health caretaker There is too much angst over each situation too much repetitive agonizing over secrets too much repetitive description of the beautiful Boulder CO scenery to keep the story moving along Overall the book needed a judicious editor to maintain the suspense and storyline I have learned alot about Boulder from reading this series and I look forward to one day seeing the breathtaking scenery White describes and visiting some of Gregory's downtown haunts But this book suffered from too much travel guide mixed into the plot There was also too much extraneous information that had no relevance to the story to moving the plot along; eg the page and a half of information about the lawyer's receptionist Nigel did not advance the story or have any relevance to it This is one series I am not reading in close succession I have one book to go that I picked up on sale but it will wait until I've read several other books in the interim In the long run I may not continue this series at all

    Alan Gregory is a Colorado Psychologist with something to hide In Dry Ice it is not long before his past and the secrets he has been hiding gegin to surface When one of Alan's former patients escapes from The Colorado State Mental Hospital things heat up for Alan GregoryAt the same time Alan's wife Lauren is a Boulder Colorado prosecutor assigned to a high profile and sensitive grand jury investigation where the key witness has vanished When Alan finds the woman's Coach handbag in his yard he becomes a suspect All the while his wife has secrets of her own and she is battling MS and drugs to help her cope with the painThis story started out a bit slow at first but had enough twists and turns to keep my interest The reader for the audio book Dick Hill was great in my opinion and I would definitely like to listen to audio books like this one again A good psychological thriller where everyone seems to have something to hide

    This is the first Stephen White book I've read but it certainly won't be the last I really really enjoyed it and found it wonderfully unpredictable hard to find any in mysteries it seems and real as well I always like to find a favorite line or passage in a book one that just jumps out at me In this book it was this passageTeresa used exclamation points as though she'd won a life time supply on a game show She thought she'd never run out By contrast I lived life as though I'd been granted half a dozen at birth and was told they had to last me until I took my last breath Though it's neither here nor there I am a Teresa

    I had never heard of this author bf and was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked his writing this is the 2nd book in this series and in the begin it seemed I was going to be lost on the plot but White did good job of incorporating both stories so i could follow Dr Alan Gregory is a psych who patients seem to die and family and friends are in bunches of trouble all at the hand of a sociopathic mastermind Michael Mclaelland this psycho is out to get revenge on this doctor and does so is the most ingenious ways Enjoy

    It had been a while since I had read this one and when I started to read the next in the series I decided to re read this one to refresh my memory on what was going on with the main charactersThis was the most recent of the Dr Alan Gregory mystery novels I didn't enjoy it as much as some of the previous ones however I love this series They are based in Boulder and it's fun reading about places I know

    A great psychological thriller overall The beginning is somewhat slow and focuses too much on secrets That part is rather repetitive It picks up though and gets into a complex tale with a villain from one of White's prior novels The author skillfully shows the reader why he titled his book Dry Ice not for one but two reasons There are some surprises as one expects from White I thoroughly enjoyed it
