In some ways Ben is just like a lot of other guys in his college. He's kind of quiet, likes movies and books and spends most of his time by himself or in the library. He's a little awkward around girls, but he keeps trying and hoping that someday soon he'll find the love of his life. No luck so far, though.

But in one very important way Ben isn't like other guys at all. You can't tell by looking at him, but there's something simmering deep inside of Ben. Lately he's been thinking a lot about some pretty awful things... and he's bought a gun. His loneliness has become bitterness, and his resentment has turned to hatred. It's all boiling up inside him and it's only a matter of time before he explodes. Then it's just a question of who will be the first to die.

"Gerlach's RAGE is a volcano of a story that builds from
deceptively quiet beginnings to an incandescent eruption of violence.
This tale of one man's smouldering, malignant rage at society is a potent one."
-- Simon Clark, author of Vampyrrhic, UK

"Think Huck Finn on a river of blood...

Taxi Driver meets American Psycho in this
simmering novel of hate, loneliness and despair.
The characters are real, plucked from everyday life,
and the climax is a sickening tour deforce to kill for."
-- The Spook Magazine, USA

"A gripping thriller, full of white-knuckle suspense."
-- Brian Keene, author of The Rising and Terminal, USA
