CHICAGO, Nov. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new thriller digs deep into the story of how a teenager becomes violent. Chicago author, J.E.Mayer, who is a practicing clinical psychologist as well as a fiction writer specializes in acting-out teenagers and helping families in his clinical practice.
"This book is a fictionalized compilation of violent cases I have worked on throughout the years," notes Mayer. "Many, of the actual scenes and the dialogue are real. They come straight out of what I intervene every day."
An Anger at Birth tells the story of how a city is paralyzed by fear after a series of violent crimes break the ultimate taboo of harming infants and young children. The police suspect a pedophile and the media fuel fears of a violent new gang. Meanwhile, a street-smart shrink and a hard-nosed cop defy the focus of the larger investigation to pursue the real serial killer. Based on actual events, this chilling, fast-paced novel pulls the reader into the world of violent troubled individuals-and what happens when we fail to help them.
This is the second novel that Mayer has published in as many months. Immortal: The First Tango was released in October 2014. Immortal is a unique telling of the vampire legend. Mayer took the latest scientific discoveries on genetic and blood research and compiled them into a story that makes the possibility of vampirism medically real and logical.
Both books have cinematic book trailers that were made by Red14Films a leading Hollywood, California, producer of cinematic book trailers. Links to the book trailers can be viewed on the author's web site: http://www.jemayerbooks.com/excerpts.
"It seems to be a monumental feat to have two works of fiction come out only two months apart, but both were written some time ago," remarks Mayer. "The state of publishing today and my need to get these great stories out to the public had more to do with their release dates than my prolificacy," adds Mayer. "I will say that it seems a bit like Patterson and King to have these come out so closely together, but the established rules in publishing seem to have been discarded long ago."
