|| "Dr. Gregory is starting to feel settled, hopeful that a long period of upheaval in his private life is behind him. He refocuses his energy on his clinical psychology practice, where a beguiling new patient captivates him, but the interlude of calm doesn't lest. Devastating fires are threatening Boulder. Alan's dear friend Diane is showing signs of a long-simmering emotional collapse. And Alan's most pressing fear--the exposure of a dangerous secret--has become a peril too real to ignore."--Book jacket.
