Inhoud

Rosemary's Baby chilled us with its startling, darkly brillian story of the birth of the son of Satan in modern-day Manhattan. With a flawless evocation of the telling details of everyday urban existence, Ira Levin wove an irresistibly suspenseful tale of subtly evolving evil that was as terrifying as it was completely believable. Rosemary's Baby became a classic, as both a novel and a film. Son of Rosemary opens at the dawn of the new millennium - a time when human hope is shadowed by growing fear an uncertainty, and the world is in greatest need of a savior. It is here - against the glittering backdrop of New York City in 1999 - that Rosemary is reunited with her son. It is also here that the battle between good and evil will be played out on a global scale - a struggle that will have frightening, far-reaching consequences, not only for Rosemary and her son but for all of humanity. Haunting, provocative, and utterly unforgettable, Son of Rosemary is both a unique, tantalizing thriller and a cautionary tale for the coming century. With exquisite timing and masterly skill, Ira Levin takes us on a journe into darkness - and the troubling forces that war within each of us. A triumph of storytelling, a tour-de -force of superb craftmanship, Son of Rosemary is an enthralling novel by one of our most gifted and original authors.
