Secret Rage is definitely a page turner, as evidenced by my reading time of less than a day. Unfortunately, I was distracted from the plot by the sad treatment of women throughout the novel. Although there are several opportunities for Pilkey to introduce a strong female character, most notably in Jack's new partner, Jenny, the author entirely fails to do so. Jenny and her fellow female cop, Kris, are reduced to sexual objects for the entertainment of the their male colleagues and any other men ...more

This whole sub story which takes centre stage throughout most of the book, and in many ways is really the main storyline of ...more

I must say that this was quite the page turner. I was expecting a police mystery and I think that isn't quite what it is. While there is a big reveal towards the end of the book it really doesn't have the feel of a classic mystery. I would say it falls much more under the title of thriller. But even so it

I wouldn't call it a mystery. It's a police procedural with lots of action.
