In a host of consecutive bestsellers, Jonathan Kellerman has kept readers spellbound with the intense, psychologically acute adventures of Dr. Alex Delaware–and with excursions through the raw underside of L.A. and the coldest alleys of the criminal mind.Rage offers a powerful new case in point, as Delaware and LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis revisit a horrifying crime from the past that has taken on shocking and deadly new dimensions. 

Troy Turner and Rand Duchay were barely teenagers when they kidnapped and murdered a younger child. Troy, a remorseless sociopath, died violently behind bars. But the hulking, slow-witted Rand managed to survive his stretch. Now, at age twenty-one, he’s emerged a haunted, rootless young man with a pressing need: to talk–once again–with psychologist Alex Delaware. But the young killer comes to a brutal end, that conversation never takes place. 

Has karma caught up with Rand? Or has someone waited for eight patient years to dine on ice-cold revenge? Both seem strong possibilities to Sturgis, but Delaware’s suspicions run deeper . . . and darker. Because fear in the voice of the grownup Rand Duchay–and his eerie final words to Alex: “I’m not a bad person”betray untold secrets. Buried revelations so horrendous, and so damning, they’re worth killing for.

As Delaware and Sturgis retrace their steps through a grisly murder case that devastated a community, they discover a chilling legacy of madness, suicide, and multiple killings left in its wake–and even uglier truths waiting to be unearthed. And the nearer they come to understanding an unspeakable crime, the more harrowingly close they get to unmasking a monster hiding in plain sight.

Rage finds Jonathan Kellerman in phenomenal form–orchestrating a relentlessly suspenseful, devilishly unpredictable plot to a finale as stunning and thought-provoking as it is satisfying. Download and start listening now!

    " Milo and Alex are at it again as they try to figure out who killed a young man, just out of the children's youth lock-up. Alex had consulted on the case that sent the boy to jail and he calls Alex when he's released. But Alex never meets with him because he's killed first. Tracking the killer leads to more gruesome murders and abuses. I listened to this book on audiobook. The reader is good; I like him. And I absolutely LOVE Milo. Many times I wish he was the central character - he's so much more dynamic than Alex - and I love the sense of humor Kellerman brings out in Milo. Alex is still seeing Allison in this novel, but you can foresee him rekindling things with Robin at the end. I wish Kellerman would make up his mind about Robin. I'm very tired of this on again/off again thing with them. Either have her stay or have her go. Either way doesn't make a difference to me, but don't keep oscillating! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keryn | 1/19/2014

    " Couldn't put it down - I do enjoy Kellerman's relaxed mode of writing while keeping up the pace and whodunnit till the end. Great reading - covering a wide range of settings from prison to campsites to foster homes and movie-making. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leigh Ann | 1/12/2014

    " ugh. i usually like his books and am happily sedated in easy to read crime drama after finishing - this one started off promising and ended with a pppfffft. predictable and boring. AND the title had about 0 to do with the storyline. "

    " I enjoyed the fast pace of this novel, though at times I found the constant speculations a little tedious - I would have preferred a bit more action. The ending was also somewhat anti-climactic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 3/30/2010

    " Pretty standard Alex Delaware stuff here. Enjoyed it as usual. It had it'a high points with the personal drama of many of the characters, to include Alex. But the story itself was largely predictable. All in all worth the read and the $5 I dropped on it. "
