After 14 years of being beaten, Rose Daniels wakes up one morning and leaves her husband -- but she keeps looking over her shoulder, because Norman has the instincts of a predator. And what is the strange work of art that has Rose in a kind of spell? In this brilliant dark-hued fable of the gender wars, Stephen King has fashioned yet another suspense thriller to keep readers right at the edge.
On The Flap
Roused by a single drop of blood on the bedsheet, Rosie Daniels wakes from
fourteen years of a nightmare marriage and suddenly takes flight. She uses her
husband's ATM card to buy a bus ticket, determined to lose herself in a place where Norman
won't find her. She'll worry about all the rest later.
Alone in a strange city, she begins to make a new life, and good things
start to happen. Meeting Bill Steiner is one; and finding a junk-shop painting is
another. It may be bad art but it's perfect for her new apartment -- and somehow, it
seems to want her as much as she wants it.
Still, it's hard for Rosie not to keep looking over her shoulder, and with
good reason. Her husband is a cop, with the instincts of a predator. He's very
good at finding people. The fact that he's losing his mind might even be an
Rose-maddened and on the rampage, Norman Daniels becomes a force of
relentless terror and savageness, a man almost mythic in his monstrosity. For Rosie
to survive, for her to have a chance in her brave new world, she must enter her own myth
-- a world that lies beyond the surface of a work of art -- and become a woman she never
knew she could be: Rose Madder.
Stephen King's peerless imagination and storytelling genius have
captivated a huge audience over twenty years of bestsellerdom. A brilliant dark-hued
fable of the gender wars, a haunting love story, and a hold-your-breath-until-you-gasp
triumph of suspense, Rose Madder is Stephen King at his electrifying best.
