"I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it."
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.Read more ›
i received a complimentary copy of this book to review
So many reviewers received this book as a free copy that I must state that I paid for my Kindle copy, as I have for Dr. Gold's other books.
Many have mentioned that typos in the text that I must add that I did not find them very distracting because the plot line was so engaging and the basic premise fascinating.
A series of seemingly random murders and other acts of violence take place, committed by people with no psychiatric history. Dr. Michael Rose, a forensic psychiatrist who once was a police officer and therefore has a broad background on criminal behavior, sets out to find the reason why. After several stages of investigation, Dr. Rose finds that there is a relation between the murders, orchestrated by an extremely unlikely perpetrator who seems above suspicion through most of the book. The plot line, which includes a blend of pharmacology and psychology, held my attention throughout.
Having read all five of Dr. Gold's novels, I found it very interesting that in three, including this one, the bad guy ends up shot to death by one of his victim's relatives when the justice system fails to exact retribution. This is the "lex talionis" at its best, as when the criminal justice system fails, citizens must take the law into their own hands.
This book is written at a very "childish" level. The plot is unbelievable and disconnected. The characters are undeveloped. The medical aspect of drug interaction and side effects is beyond the stretch of imagination. I found I could skip entire chapters and still be on track with the progress of the book. The ending is entirely ridiculous. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

While it was not the butler,it was the last one you would have expected. In a cast full of crazed killers and twisted motives, the ending just may catch you off balance.Published 16 months ago by NinaS
