From the Archives: Rage by Jonathan Kellerman

 I began keeping a reading journal several years before I began blogging. I find it interesting to sift through my thoughts of books that I read back then. My reviews were often brief and contained little substance, but I thought it'd be fun to document them here on my blog as well as share them with you. Here is one from September of 2005:


Rage by Jonathan Kellerman 
Ballantine Books, 2005 
Crime Fiction; 365 pgs 

 Although I did enjoy Jonathan Kellerman’s last two Alex Delaware novels, this one was definitely better. Two boys on the verge of teenhood are convicted of the murder of a toddler. Years later, one of the boys, now an adult, telephones psychologist Alex Delaware and asks to meet with him. However, the former client ends up dead. Homicide Lieutenant Milo Sturgis and Alex Delaware team up to find out who and the why, uncovering lies and darker truths at every turn. Jonathan Kellerman writes an entertaining and exciting suspense novel. Like with most of his recent work, a lot of the mystery is solved through dialogue and rumination between the two main characters, Milo and Alex.

  1. I think I have only read one book by Kellerman, but it wasn't any of the ones in this series. I am glad to hear that this one didn't disappoint and that you found it a worthy addition to the series. Very nice review. I enjoy succinct reviews every now and then! :)

    1. Heather - I really like Jonathan Kellerman's nonseries books.

      My pre-blogging "reviews" tend to be very brief. :-) More for the purpose of reminding me what a book was about and whether I liked it.

  2. I used to gobble up this series but I haven't read one in years because something felt off to me. I should try picking one up again!

    1. Staci - It's been years since I read anything from this series too. I lost interest somewhere along the way.

  3. I used to read this author all of the time but it has been such a long time since I picked one up. Reading your thoughts on this one made me want to go and start back at the beginning of the series. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Samantha - He was one of my go to authors before I began blogging. It's been ages since I last read one of his books. I just haven't felt the need to pick up the series where I left off.

  4. I went through a big Kellerman stage in the 90's and then I kind of dropped him. I need to go back and read a few and remember why I loved them so much!

    1. Kathleen - Me too. I used to read his books like candy, but then stopped reading him. I haven't picked up one of his books in years.
