I definitely recommend this if you like suspense. It is a quick but eerie read, about a family that is stalked by a released convict the father bore witness against in the past. The helplessness of the family to take action to stop the stalking is scary and frustrating, and the ease with which a perfect family life turns into a horror is enough to make your spine tingle. I can't compare this to either of the movies, as it has been half a lifetime since I have seen them...I will have to check them out again.
