Book Description

REVISED SINCE EARLY REVIEWS: When normal people suddenly attack and murder, their defense attorney hires Dr. Michael Rose, a former cop turned forensic psychiatrist and his associate, Karen Scott to represent them in court. The inexplicable events mystify these experienced professionals, and together they seek a rational explanation.
When psychiatric evaluation reveals a pattern among the subjects, Michael suspects that there is more to these incidents than spontaneous psychosis. Using his instincts and skills as a former police detective, Michael and Karen begin their own investigation.
What they uncover is chilling.
Who is behind it?
Why is it happening, and most importantly can they do something before the killer strikes again?
During the dramatic denouement, Michael must wrestle with his conscience and the true meaning of justice.

About the Author

I was born in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn, moved to Queens, and then, as New Yorkers say, we ascended to the Island. After graduating from Valley Stream Central High School, I went to Adelphi, a college then, a university now, and then to medical school in Chicago. The war in Vietnam interrupted my postgraduate training with a year in Colorado Springs and another as a Battalion Surgeon in Vietnam. I spent seven months in the Central Highlands with the 4th Infantry and five months in an evacuation hospital in Long Binh outside Saigon where I ran the emergency room. I returned intact in 1968 to complete my training in internal medicine and diseases of the kidney, nephrology. I worked for twenty-three years in Berkeley, California in a hospital-based practice caring for patients with complicated illnesses often in ICU and served as Chief of Medicine. My wife Dorlis and I retired in October 1995 and sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge for a life at sea in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. Four years later, exhausted from repairing everything on board, (often many times) we sold the sailboat and within a year took the lazy man's out; we bought a Nordic Tug, a trawler. We motored around Florida, the Bahamas, the entire East Coast and completed two 'Circle trips' to Canada and back, eight months, the first time, five months, the second. I wrote professionally as a physician to inform but rarely to entertain, at least not on purpose. First, Do No Harm was published in April 2007. No Cure for Murder was released in August 2011. For the Love of God was published in January 2012 and The Sixth Sense 2012.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting idea for a book December 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
When I first started reading rage I almost stopped as it is choppy and very nonengaging in the first quarter of the book. Murder after murder just seems a hard way to get the reader engaged in the book. After some of the characters were introduced I liked it better but agree with other reviewers that the characters need to be fleshed out more. The editing in the book was awful at least one error per two pages although once I started the book I got an email that there was an updated copy which I never bothered to download. Once I was half way through the book I got engaged in the thought of how the murders and attacks were accomplished and enjoyed the court room scenes and really enjoyed the ending. Worth a weekend read.

"I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it."

4.0 out of 5 stars This Doctor has a Stealth-a-Scope January 14, 2013
Format:Paperback
This psychological thriller comes from the author of the Brier Hospital [mystery] Series in which he reveals what really goes on behind the scenes in the medical community and what challenges confront it and us. This novel stands alone as another medical mystery, but it is structured around a number of similar acts of violence in the community, and how forensic psychiatrists are able to show lawyers and cops that some crimes are not what they appear to be.

Mental health experts have put a lot of hurdles up for them to jump. The symptoms and circumstances of the attacks suggest Avoidance Personality Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissim, and so forth. The individuals who express rage are very different from one another. Finally it occurs to the investigators that these violent persons may have been poisoned to change their personalities. By whom? What's their connection?

I have come to trust that Gold,though his works are fiction, is trying to tell us some things about medicine that are important. Best of all, they are not so technical that your eyes glaze over. In fact, once you pick up RAGE your eyes will stay wide open into the wee hours. The themes he revisits here is misuse of over-the-counter medications. In this case, it is scopolamine. Ever heard of it? It's on motion sickness patches. Government and intelligence organizations (!) have used it for mind control. And it's a date-rape drug. There are lots of terrible side-effects,and Gold refers to many, but I could not establish from a quick search that rage is one of them.

My telling you this will not spoil the mystery for you, as Gold always comes up with interesting characters (though many critics would like more depth). You will not know until the end WHODUNNIT or why.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story January 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The book had an engrossing story after you waded through the first segment of the book and had everything you could want in a good mystery! It was difficult to figure out who did it and was entertaining after the first segment which was confusing. Hard to put down after starting. worth a read!

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't like January 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was complimentary for review. The first chapter got me interested. After that forced myself to read it. I kept thinking it would get better but it did not. The characters were not real. The story line was unbelievable. Too many cliches and used were it didn't make any sense. Many many errors! The author did not do enough research. All in all it was poorly written. I would not recommend this to anyone.

Format:Paperback
Lawrence W. Gold, MD is a physician/author who takes risks with his books: his previous four books - FIRST, DO NO HARM, NO CURE FOR MURDER, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, and THE SIXTH SENSE - are stories that revealed some rather grim aspects of the medical profession. Now in his fifth novel - RAGE - he ventures into even more controversial territory. Gold has retired from medicine (he was a Nephrologist, having served as a Battalion Surgeon in Vietnam at the same time as this reviewer) and it is understandable that he wishes to uses his patently obvious skills as a writer as his post-medical career. One wonders why he continues to use the MD after his name in this successful second career, but perhaps the intent is to add validity to his writing.

This novel was first released to the public in a different format - the type font was very small and the spacing between the lines so dense that visually making it through the novel produced optical fatigue, a factor that may account for some of the original negative review of this book. Now the book has been re-formatted and is easier to read as a book - but what happens now is that the mesmerizing aspects of the grisly crimes of this story are now more apparent and instead of optical fatigue, the reader is faced with sleep deprivation, as it is difficult to put this book down until completed!

Rose opens his drama in 1992 with a ghastly murder: Michael Rose, before attending medical school, is working as a cop and his partner, an older lesbian veteran, is murdered as they stop to inspect a suspicious scene. Jump forward to present day and a couple is driving for a skiing outing when a leak in the radiator hose makes them pull over. A friendly hulk of a man pulls up to help - and pow!, another heinous murder occurs.
