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!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 2/8/2014

    " I've grown accustomed to Kellerman's writing style for the Dr. Delaware character and though I don't think it's the best thing I've ever heard, it's not all that bad either. This book was one of the more disturbing ones in the Dr. D series I've listened to. And also probably the one with the least satisfying ending. We had a lot of build up, tension, thrills, chills, suspense and such only to have the conclusion thrown at us in a few paragraphs. Kind of anticlimactic, really. Still, of the J Kellerman books I've listened to, this one ranks near the top. "

    " Mr. Kellerman never does me wrong with his Alex Delaware novels (crime solving psychologist). Yeah, it's no major effort, but I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 1/20/2014

    " Fun, mindless, drivel. That's a good recipe every so often. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Romaine Hislop | 1/20/2014

    " The book Rage is a fantastic book in my opinion because it has all the factors that interest and appeal to me. It includes crime and mystery which is wrapped into a incredible plot that leaves each reader interested, surprised and satisfied. Readers explore how a detective uses the help of a child psychologist to figure out how and why certain crimes occur, the story is very long but always interesting every step of the way. The author of this book has many other fascinating most which are series of the book 'Rage' and include the main character Alex Delaware.After reading this book i have realize the amount of work that was put into this book, it shock me to think of how long it took to complete such a book such as Rage. All and all i would rate this book a 9 out of 10 "

    " 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. "

    " I made the huge mistake of reading this because of a limited amount of books to choose from. It takes alot for me now to read something that has "New York Times Bestseller" flashed across the front of a book. The title doesn't even make sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eleanor | 12/3/2013

    " 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. "
