What happens when a psychologist enters the darkness of the criminal mind? When a tormented killer takes revenge on an unsuspecting city? When the warning signs come too late? These are the provocative issues at the heart of Warning Signs, Stephen White's explosive new novel of psychological suspense. White's crackling novels have earned widespread acclaim as "superior psychological thrillers" (Chicago Tribune) that are "taut, breathless, and mesmerizing" (The Denver Post) and "sinister and scary" (The New York Times Book Review). Now the New York Times bestselling author returns with a story that catapults clinical psychologist Alan Gregory into the blistering heat of a crime wave that is sweeping the city--and locks him in the ethical dilemma of his career. Warning Signs The grisly slaying shatters the quiet of a residential neighborhood in the foothills of the Rockies. The battered body of Boulder County District Attorney Royal Peterson lies amid shards of broken pottery while his wife sleeps upstairs. Within hours, a homicide detective is the prime suspect in the brutal death that will send shock waves through the city--and reverberate in the professional and personal life of Alan Gregory. Alan knew Roy Peterson. Lauren, his wife, a prosecutor in the DA's office, worked under Peterson for years. And while Lauren contemplates taking on the defense of the accused cop, Alan meets with a new patient. Almost from the moment Naomi Bigg starts talking, warning bells go off in Alan's mind. A terrified mother with an explosive secret, Naomi tests the limits of doctor-patient confidentiality when her privileged exchanges convince Alan that a crime is about to be committed. But when he uncovers a shocking link to the Peterson slaying, Alan finds himself riding the slippery slope between professional judgment and personal responsibility as he struggles to protect his patient while probing the mind of a deeply troubled teenager. As violence erupts throughout the city--and a pattern of vengeance becomes chillingly clear--Alan is plunged into a desperate manhunt for a killer whose trail of rage winds all the way up to the Colorado Supreme Court. As the minutes tick down in a brilliantly conceived vendetta that targets the guilty and the innocent alike, Warning Signs races to a harrowing climax in which the lives of hundreds hang in the balance. A brilliant exploration of the fears and passions that war within each of us, Warning Signs is vintage White: taut, penetrating--utterly terrifying.

display_description Sometimes the warning signs come too late...

The brutal slaying of Boulder's controversial D.A. strikes deep in the heart of everything clinical psychologist Alan Gregory holds dear: After all, Alan's wife, Lauren, worked for the dead man.

When a new patient walks into Alan's office--a terrified mother with an explosive secret--he finds himself edging even closer to the darkness. Soon her privileged exchanges convince Alan that a crime is about to be committed. And when he uncovers a shocking link to the D.A.'s slaying, Alan is suddenly locked in the ethical dilemma of his career, thrust into a desperate manhunt for a killer whose identity no one could have guessed.

As the minutes tick down, Warning Signs explodes into a gripping story of crime and punishment, tragedy and retribution--and of human beings caught in the shattering cross fire of forces beyond their control...forces sometimes within themselves.
