Publisher's Summary

A classic novel by John D. MacDonald with an exclusive introduction written and read by Dean Koontz.
An insane criminal threatens to destroy a family, and the police are powerless to protect them.
For 14 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….

Dated But Great

It's made clear early in the book that the story is set on the early 1960s. If you never lived in that culture you won't understand the significance of all the time spent lightning, sharing, picking up putting down, and even smoking cigarettes. Just ignore all that. It's a great story. Enjoy it.

Robert Mitchum is the bad guy

What made the experience of listening to Cape Fear (aka The Executioners) the most enjoyable?

I remember the movie. It was a bit different and a long time ago, but the suspense was there all the way through.
