Now a major motion picture starring Bruce Willis, this look into a vigilante's mind is "a scary novel about life and death" ( The New York Times ).

Edgar Award-winning author Brian Garfield takes a chilling and nuanced look at an ordinary husband and father who loses his family to a brutal crime and spirals into a dangerous obsession.

When his wife and daughter are attacked in their home, Paul Benjamin's world collapses. Drug addicts have broken into his cozy Upper West Side apartment, leaving his wife dead and his daughter comatose. After his shock wears off, and frustrated by police inaction, Benjamin decides to take justice into his own hands. But as he pursues criminals solo, Paul's vigilantism threatens to spin out of control and destroy him as well . . .

Originally filmed in 1974 and starring Charles Bronson, the 2018 release is directed by Eli Roth and stars Bruce Willis, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Elisabeth Shue.
