9781501297304: Higher Authority (Alan Gregory Series)

The sudden death of Utah's Senator Orrin Hatch propels his successor, Lester Horner, first into Hatch's Senate seat and then on to become the first Mormon associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Carried along with Horner is Blythe Oaks, an ambitious and intelligent woman who is also Horner's favorite law clerk and fellow Mormon. But Blythe's reputation - and, by extension, Lester Horner's - is threatened when a female former employee accuses her of sexual harassment and career sabotage. In Higher Authority White shifts his focus from Dr. Alan Gregory, the hero of Privileged Information and the national bestseller Private Practices, to Alan's fiancée, Lauren Crowder. The pool-shooting deputy D.A.'s life is already complicated enough as she picks her way through her relationship with Alan at the same time she is fighting her quiet and dignified battle with multiple sclerosis. But since Blythe's accuser happens to be Lauren's kid sister, aspiring stand-up comic Teresa Crowder, Lauren plunges into the case. And she gets immediate help from an old law school buddy, Robin Torr, whose practice is in Salt Lake City. When, suddenly, Blythe Oaks is savagely murdered in Washington D.C., the lengths to which someone will go to protect secrets that might prove embarrassing to higher authorities in the church are starkly revealed. And as Crowder and Torr probe more and more deeply into these secrets, with timely help from Alan Gregory and his old friend Detective Sam Purdy of the Boulder, Colorado police, White's tough but determined women find the body count growing and themselves placed in jeopardy by a remorseless killer.

From AudioFile:

Mormon fundamentalists took a beating in Jon Krakauer's UNDERTHE BANNER OF HEAVEN, and they don't come off any better here. LaurenCrowder, the fiancée of Dr. Alan Gregory (White's usualprotagonist), goes to Salt Lake City to assist in the investigation ofa sexual harassment charge brought by Lauren's sister against a femaleclerk to the first Mormon U.S. Supreme Court Justice. The clerk ismurdered--is it a random killing or one connected to the lawsuit? Twoother murders follow. Dick Hill's facility with voices allows him tonavigate easily between male and female, authoritative and scared,young and middle-aged. One policeman has an entire conversationthrough a mouthful of food. Informative about Mormon history andphilosophy, well abridged, and well read.
