Roused by a single drop of blood, Rosie Daniels wakes up to the
chilling realisation that her husband is going to kill her. And she
takes flight - with his credit card. Alone in a strange city, Rosie
begins to build a new life: she meets Bill Steiner and she finds an
odd junk shop painting, 'Rose Madder', which strangely seems to
want her as much as she wants it. But it's hard for Rosie not to
keep looking over her shoulder. Rose-maddened and on the rampage,
Norman is a corrupt cop with a dog's instinct for tracking people.
And he's getting close. Rosie can feel how close he is getting ...A
brilliant, dark-hued fable of gender wars, a haunting love story,
and a hold-your-breath triumph of suspense, ROSE MADDER is Stephen
King at his electrifying best.
