Toxic Rage: A Tale Of Murder In Tucson by A.J. Flick is a true crime story. The day Brian Stidham arrived in Tucson, Arizona, he fell in love with the place. He had come to work at Brad Schwartz’s pediatric clinic but he had no idea of what lay ahead of him. Schwartz may be talented and he had plenty of ambition, but he also had more than his fair share of troubles. Those troubles would effectively end the partnership between Schwartz and Stidham with Stidham starting a practice of his own. Schwartz was not, if rumors were to be believed, happy about this and his anger forced his fiancée, Lourdes Lopez, to turn her back. Within two more years, Stidham would be dead, murdered in a dark parking lot and the hunt would be on for his killer. Lopez, a former prosecutor, feared that she knew the truth but would it be enough to catch the killer?

Toxic Rage: A Tale of Murder in Tucson by A.J Flick is a comprehensive book, going right back to the beginning when Stidham arrived in Tucson. It lays the story out in a way that is easy to read and understand, almost novel-like, which, in my opinion, made it easier to read. It is clear, to the point, and detailed; if you didn’t know the author was a journalist at the start, you would soon guess! All the information is laid out plainly, allowing the reader to draw their own conclusions along the way as we are led to the conclusion – was the right person put away? A.J. Flick has done a great job of ‘reporting’ on this story, providing one of the best true crime stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading.
