Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Although he has done everything from Broadway to film and television, Rubinstein was apparently born to play Dr. Alex Delaware;Kellerman's famously successful clinical psychologist whose cases get darker and more complicated over the years. This is Rubinstein's 19th audio outing as Delaware, and he pulls it off brilliantly: his voice changes definitively but never goes over the top as he moves between the cool, smooth psychologist and his edgier co-investigator, L.A. police lieutenant Milo Sturgis. Rubinstein also brings to instant life dozens of other male and female characters, from love interests to at-risk teenagers and sex criminals;giving each a distinctive personality. An earlier case resurfaces when the teenage boy who abducted and killed a two-year-old girl is released after eight years in detention and calls Delaware to set up a meeting. The boy never appears; his murdered body is later found, and Delaware and Sturgis are quickly involved in a very nasty investigation that takes them into a bleak landscape where children are the victims. There are long stretches of speculative dialogue between Alex and Milo that annoyed some critics of the book, but Rubinstein cleverly turns these into verbal tennis matches that make for fascinating listening.

From Booklist

It has been eight years since two-year-old Kristal Malley was brutally murdered by two young teenage boys, and Alex Delaware has pushed his role in the drama out of his mind. Then a phone call from one of the boys, Rand Duchay, now released at age 21, brings the sad, sordid circumstances back. When Rand is found murdered--with Delaware's phone number in his pocket--the cops come knocking, in the person of Delaware's friend, Lieutenant Milo Sturgis. Delaware and Sturgis take on the familiar roles of compatriots in crime solving, as they try to determine if Kristal's murder has any bearing on Rand's death. Before they can figure that out, though, they must slash their way through a morass of lies, abuse, and dirty secrets, which envelop nearly everyone involved in the original tragedy. There's less suspense here than in some of Kellerman's past Delaware novels; Alex and Milo spend a great deal of time swapping theories in the kitchen, in the car, and at restaurants, methodically piecing together gossamer-thin trails of evidence. But there's still enough surprise along the way to keep things interesting, especially at the close, when both Delaware and Sturgis face a moral quandary with which readers will sympathize. Less action, more substance for Kellerman fans. Stephanie Zvirin

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the others June 16 2005
Format:Hardcover
I am a huge fan of Jonathan Kellerman's books. This said, I was a bit disapointed with Rage. The overall story was good. But the ending left me wondering. What really happened? Did I miss something? There was a lot of theories put forth by the main characters, Alex Delaware and his friend Milo. Throughout the story, they speculate as to what was going on but the ending leaves it without proof of... well, anything.
I also was upset about the developments brought forth in Alex's love life. I don't want to spoil it for readers but it felt funny, the way things went.
SO, I would read it if you are a die-hard fan. Don't buy it in hard cover... You can wait for the paperback! If this is your first novel by Kellerman, don't give up. It's been better!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing in many ways April 2 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed in this book for two reasons. First, I have become accustomed to Kellerman books being excellently plotted and written. This one held too many theories that led all over the place when it was apparent half way through the book who was the bad guy. The ending left much to be desired, as well.

Second, I bought this book in Kindle format, and paid almost as much as I would have paid for the paperback. The formatting was terrible--so much so that it was difficult to read in places. Paragraph indents were missing, there were silly typos such as you get when you scan a book with a second grade OCR software program. If I am going to pay this much for a book, I expect it to look much better than this. I won't be buying any more like this.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointment awaits May 21 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have enjoyed all of the artist's other books. This one reads as if the last 20% was written by someone else.

There are all kinds of parts of the story that are unresolved at the end of it- including missing people and missing motives.

The last page kind of sums up a short list of some of the missing information and thengoes " oh well, I guess we will never know." What kind of a whodunit is that?

Even the subplot with the girlfriend is poor. She seems shallow and unbelievable.

I read the other review and being a die-hard fan I got it anyway so I will make my summary stronger.

Even if you are a die-hard fan ( or perhaps especially if you are ) don't get this book. Only disappointment awaits you.
