Overview

When four women suffer at the hands of one man, the results are deadly!

Heaven's Rage has the usual components of a mystery novel - the crime of murder, a gruff but loveable protagonist and an assortment of suspects - yet it presents a unique theme as it takes readers back in time to tell the stories of four women who loved one man and who are now suspects in his murder. Homicide Detective Ian Buchanan is assigned to the murder investigation of Richard Tate, a retired military helicopter pilot. He quickly determines the victim's three former wives and college girlfriend all had motive and opportunity to commit the crime. As each of these women takes us through her volatile relationship with Tate, the detective finds himself sympathizing with his suspects rather than the victim.

GINA RODRIGUEZ is a career naval officer determined to break through the invisible barriers of a male-dominated military. It's 1989, and along comes Dick Tate to charm her through a whirlwind romance which leads to an explosive relationship with a drunken and abusive husband.

MEG MCALLISTAR is devoted to her son, but manages to get away one night a week to party at a nearby naval base. During one of those evenings in 1982, she meets the recently-divorced Dick Tate. Two years later they marry. As Dick's bitter resentment of his first wife grows, Meg is subjected to his frequent fits of rage.

JORDAN CAMPBELL is just completing her Army training when she meets Dick Tate, a young pilot-trainee. Their brief romance is threatened when they each receive orders to opposite sides of the country, prompting them to wed quickly. Shortly thereafter, Jordan discovers she's pregnant and is discharged from the Army.

COLLEEN MORGAN and Dick Tate are both members of their college swim team. After dating for a couple of months, Dick is becoming serious but his chameleon-like moods trouble her and she decides to end the relationship.

Editorial Reviews

Sacramento News & Review
Heaven�s Rage opens like an episode of CSI, but quickly turns into a profound and eye-opening look at the nature of abusive relationships. Wrapped in an entertaining murder mystery, Sacramento author Tiffany Craig Brown digs deep, with story after story of the verbal and physical abuse suffered by several women and children at the hands of the man whose murder is being investigated. As the detectives begin to sympathize with the suspects, the list of women hurt by the dead man grows. Before ending with an ironic twist, Brown pulls in other abusers and their victims to paint a picture of the reality facing too many women and children. She underscores the role of child abuse in breeding new generations of abusers. Heaven�s Rage serves women well as a map to the warning signs of abuse at the beginning of a relationship, hopefully preventing yet another tragic story like the ones depicted here.

Midwest Book Review
All it takes is one man to ruin many lives. "Heaven's Rage" follows Detective Ian Buchanan, who is assigned to find out who is responsible for the murder of Richard Tate. But with such a personality as Dick's, Ian soon learns that the list of suspects is long and there are plenty of women scorned. A riveting tale of wronged love and the need for revenge and why it can be hard to hate a murderer, "Heaven's Rage" is a fascinating read well worth embracing.
