The one I have is titled The Executioners.

Mild mannered attorney Sam Bowden and his wife protect their family from a psychopath he crossed paths with many years before.

I don't know why it was re-titled-doesn't make any sense-no connection.

This book made me feel fear to levels I never knew existed.
In my experience, I have never known any book to be this suspenseful.
