A film tie-in which focuses on Sam Bowden, who considers himself a happy man with a beautiful wife and three children, a yacht and money in the bank. However, fourteen years ago, Sam's evidence put a vicious rapist in prison. Now the rapist is free, and the time has come for him to unleash his rage. A BLOOMSBURY FILM CLASSIC.
An insane criminal threatens to destroy a family, and the police are powerless to protect them.
For fourteen years convicted rapist Max Cady nursed his hatred for Sam Bowden into an insane passion for revenge. He lived only for the day he would be free -- free to track down and destroy the man who had put him behind bars.
Murder was merciful compared to what Cady had in mind -- and what Cady had in mind was Bowden's innocent and lovely teenaged daughter . . . .
