Troy Turner and Rand Duchay were barely teenagers when they kidnapped and murdered a younger child. Troy, a remorseless sociopath, died violently behind bars. But the hulking, slow witted Rand managed to survive his stretch. Now, at age twenty-one, he's emerged a haunted, rootless young man with a pressing need to talk once again with psychologist Alex Delaware. But the young killer comes to a brutal end, that conversation never takes place. Or has someone waited for eight patient years to dine on ice-cold revenge? Both seem strong possibilities to Sturgis, but Delaware's suspicions run deeper and darker. Because fear in the voice of the grownup Rand Duchay, and his eerie final words to Alex "I'm not a bad person" betray untold secrets. Buried revelations so horrendous, and so damning, they're worth killing for. As Delaware and Sturgis retrace their steps through a grisly murder case that devastated a community, they discover a chilling legacy of madness, suicide, and multiple killings left in its wake, and even uglier truths waiting to be unearthed. And the nearer they come to understanding an unspeakable crime, the more harrowingly close they get to unmasking a monster hiding in plain sight.… (mais)

Wraak of iets veel ergers?
De zaak was een mediahype: peuter vermoord door twee pubers. Nu, jaren later, wordt Alex Delaware gebeld door een van de daders, Rand Duchay. Hij is net vrij en wil Delaware dringend spreken over iets belangrijks. Maar Rand komt niet opdagen op de afgesproken plek: zijn lichaam wordt gevonden langs de snelweg. Samen met rechercheur Milo Sturgis start Alex Delaware een onderzoek. Al gravend in het verleden onthullen ze langzaam een monster van ongekende omvang.

Dr. Alex Delaware — everybody mixed up — crazy lives, people — kill young child — make a movie? — ministers — really controlling one on one — Bizarre — is this the real world?

Troy Turner and Rand Duchay were barely teenagers when they kidnapped and murdered a younger child. Troy, a remorseless sociopath, died violently behind bars. But the hulking, slow-witted Rand managed to survive his stretch. Now, at age twenty-one, he’s emerged a haunted, rootless young man with a pressing need: to talk–once again–with psychologist Alex Delaware. But the young killer comes to a brutal end, that conversation never takes place.

In a host of consecutive bestsellers, Jonathan Kellerman has kept readers spellbound with the intense, psychologically acute adventures of Dr. Alex Delaware–and with excursions through the raw underside of L.A. and the coldest alleys of the criminal mind. Rage offers a powerful new case in point, as Delaware and LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis revisit a horrifying crime from the past that has taken on shocking and deadly new dimensions. ( )

But the young killer comes to a brutal end, that conversation never takes place. Has karma caught up with Rand? Or has someone waited for eight patient years to dine on ice-cold revenge? Both seem strong possibilities to Sturgis, but Delaware's suspicions run deeper and darker. Because fear in the voice of the grownup Rand Duchay-and his eerie final words to Alex: "I'm not a bad person"-betray untold secrets. Buried revelations so horrendous, and so damning, they're worth killing for. As Delaware and Sturgis retrace their steps through a grisly murder case that devastated a community, they discover a chilling legacy of madness, suicide, and multiple killings left in its wake-and even uglier truths waiting to be unearthed. And the nearer they come to understanding an unspeakable crime, the more harrowingly close they get to unmasking a monster hiding in plain sight. Rage finds Jonathan Kellerman in phenomenal form-orchestrating a relentlessly suspenseful, devilishly unpredictable plot to a finale as stunning and thought-provoking as it is satisfying.

Sometimes Kellerman gets lost in the demons he conjures up. As a reader I need to care at least a little about the victims or give me a bad guy that's charismatic so I can at least enjoy the ride. Rage is dark from beginning to end. Creepy and dark.

The Devil's waltz was creepy and dark but had a intriguing villain and plot. Rage's plot is completely crushed under all the weight of the bad and disgusting things that are revealed. This is too much reality intruding in my murder mystery for me. I have a high threshold but enough is enough. I don't mind open ended conclusion or if the bad characters get away with it. I love Minette Walters the queen of the weird endings and bad guys getting away with it for me. I mind when things don't make sense in the end.

For me, the novel jumped the shark when Alex and Milo discover that the bad guy gets the young girls he has in foster care pregnant and gets them to an abortion clinic and gets off on it. This is my limit. For Delaware and Milo to do nothing was out of character. In the end you have no idea why the creep had the young girl murdered by the two boys. Because she was his and he couldn't stand that? It's all theories and conjunctures. Even the execution of the bad guy is botched up in a way because it's again all conjunctures about the motivations of the executioners.
Don't get me started on Robin. I mean, please, no. I like Allison. Robin gets on my nerves with oh, I have this new man in my life but I still want you Alex. At least Allison is honest about her desires and what she wants. I'm a bit miffed that Kellerman is having Robin back in Alex's life. A little miffed. ( )
