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.
Perfectly normal people are committing horrendous murders and then don't remember a thing. And it keeps happening--the only thing tying it together is the approximate location where they live. The defense lawyers run to grab forensic psychiatrist Michael Rose and his assistant before the prosecution lawyers do.
This is truly another book I did not put down--3 hours later and I finished it! Another 5 for Dr. Gold!
Overall, Rage kept my interest all the way through. The 'villain' wasn't too hard to guess, but discovering the motivation and the means and watching psychiatrists, prosecution and defense work (together and against each other as the plot developed) was very well done. It got 4 stars rather than 5 because some of the minor characters were either not well developed or not well rounded. More type-cast than realistic.
