I first read White's Privileged Information, which was incredible. Then I read Harm's Way, which was only so-so. Private Practices is back into the "incredible" category. Our psychologist hero, Dr. Alan Gregory, it back in his role as a consultant with the county, this time with the coroner's office. The book starts off with an action-packed murder in the office he shares with Diane, his partner. It turns out that the murder is connected to clients of both Diane and him. Alan is pressed into duty by the coroner's office, and his police pal, to solve what seem to be a string of unrelated crimes. Soon the crimes begin to affect Alan and those close to him. This is a powerfully suspenseful mystery, and I am happy to highly recommend it.
