"What woke her up was a single drop of blood, no larger than a dime."
After surviving fourteen years of hell in a violently abusive marriage, Rosie Daniels finally summons the courage to flee for her life. But leaving her husband, Norman, for a new city and a new start is a very daunting prospect. It's hard for Rosie not to keep looking over her shoulder, and with good reason—Norman's a police officer with the instincts of a predator, a force of relentless terror and savagery…a man almost mythic in his monstrosity. He's very good at finding people, even if he is losing his mind. Rosie’s only hope for salvation may lie in a far more dangerous place, where she must become her own myth and the woman she never knew she could be....
About the Author
Praise For Rose Madder…
"An eerie, remarkably mature and moving novel."
— Washington Post
"Breathlessly paced suspense and terror...horrific thrills....It's King's best!"

"Relentlessly paced and brilliantly orchestrated, this cat-and-mouse game of a novel is one of King's most engrossing and topical horror stories."
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Stephen King is a marvelous writer. His style crackles. His storyline skitters along, pausing for the kaboom, then moves to the next terror. His imagination is beyond the edge."
— Baltimore Sun
"A taut thriller-novel...about as good as they come."
— St. Louis Post-Dispatch
