Overview

Gillian Bellaver's family is one of the wealthiest in the world. Robin Sandza's father Peter is a government assassin. The two teenagers seem to have nothing in common.

While dangerous and fanatical men vie for the secrets of their awesome power, Peter Sandza, using all the ruthless skills of his trade, makes a final desperate effort to save them.

First published in 1976 and made into a successful movie written by the author and directed by Brian De Palma in 1978, The Fury is one of the all-time classics of the horror genre.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Few writers have Mr. Farris's talent for masterfully devious plotting, the shatteringly effective use of violence, in-depth characterization and scenes of gibbering horror guaranteed to turn one's blood to gelatin." —New York Times

"Farris has a remarkable ability to jab his literary ice pick into the bone marrow. With uncanny reality he depicts raw evil, partiularly the sort which masquerades as innocence. It is genuine terror and Farris provides it with an attribute lacking in the work of the most contemporary storytellers: style." —Brian Garfield, author of Death Wish

"Farris has a genius for creating compelling suspense." —Peter Benchley, author of Jaws
