The Rage is a gripping thriller of two young men whose lives become catastrophically entangled.

Roland's broken life drives him to the unthinkable crime of murder. This event destroys his emotional state and pushes him into a drug and murder binge, leading a darkly fascinated media to label him the "Red Ghost." Although he fights to pull his life back together, his bitterness leaves him no other path but a criminal lifestyle, and he becomes an extraordinarily good criminal. He perfects his use of steroids, becomes a master thief, develops a network of criminal connections, and finally decides to put together his own gang. Along the way, he falls in love with another lost soul named Janie.

Nicolas is a young, ambitious businessman when he survives Roland's assault on his family. But the tragedy changes the course of his life as he obsesses over finding the young killer and training in various forms of combat to prepare himself for their next encounter. As he becomes a dangerous man, he falls away from normal society and loses his job along with any sense of the man he was. The sisterly affection of Vanessa, a friend of his wife, isn't enough to keep Nicolas from ending up living in alleys. He almost surrenders his quest for revenge before joining with a biker gang that crossed paths with Roland once.

After a few years and many sacrifices, both of these men begin to realize the depths of their depravity, but the path to redemption is not a straight one. Vanessa becomes a federal agent and finds herself hunting her friend like he was an outlaw while a mysterious criminal racket simultaneously tries to recruit Roland and kill off Nicolas. These events lead to a kidnapping and a conclusion that brings all of the characters together in a clashing that can only end in blood.

(Author's note to parents: while Christian-themed, this book was not written for children.)

(Author's note: Despite paying thousands for two editors, there are glaring typos in the text of The Rage. The editors are not to blame as I rushed both of them and therefore received rushed results. I cannot in good conscience sell a print book for $9.99 knowing there are typos in it, so I have discontinued the print version until I have the time and resources to fix these typos. The eBook is still available, as it is only $0.99. Blessings all)

From the Author:

Dedicated to anyone who has ever thought they weren't good enough.

When Roland's broken life drives him to drugs and murder in the dark streets of the city, he finds himself unwilling to simply die. Instead, he struggles to pull his life together as a professional criminal while training others to do the same in order to build a terrifying gang.

The first of Roland's victims, Nicolas, his family torn from him and his perfect life destroyed, gives up on his dreams and devotes himself to vengeance--an obsession that transforms him from calm businessman to dangerous killer.

As their lives become entangled in a crisscross of devastation, these men, who began life so differently, race toward a violent end--together.
