From bestselling crime novelist (and deputy district attorney) William P. Wood . . . A killer so savage (and so sly) that the brutal frenzy of his crimes makes an unassailable insanity defense—such is the opponent facing Tony Fraser, a young district attorney willing to risk anything, everything, for a sentence of death. Plotted against by court psychiatrists, tormented by vanishing evidence and fugitive witnesses, his own wife a target, Fraser finds himself checkmated by the accused—until he seizes an opportunity to go beyond the letter of the law.
To experience the final, stunning climax of Rampage is to thrill to the tensions of a high-stakes capital case, to go behind the scenes of our justice system, and to find a dark and terrifying clockwork there.

Read an Excerpt
They were almost at the bedroom. He stepped up from behind the old man, put the barrel of the gun against his head, and fired. The old man fell forward onto the woman because they’d been walking so closely together. She screamed and tried to run ahead. He leaped over the old man, who’d toppled face forward to the hall carpet, and grabbed her by the arm. For an instant she stared right at him, her face drained of color, twisting in his grip, screaming. He screamed, too. He shot her first in the chest. She fell back into the bedroom, gasping and bleeding on the floor.
