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. My first novel, First, Do No Harm was published in 2007.To this date, I’ve published eleven novels in the Brier Hospital Series (all may be read independently), four novels in general medical fiction, and one non-fiction book. Reviews have been gratifying.

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.

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.

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.

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!

I have to start this with my own disclaimer:
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.

I have been given a copy of this book to read in exchange for a review.

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.
