"You try to walk in this town, you hear footsteps behind you—it's like the sound of grenades. A walk in Chicago after dark is a combat mission." This is the story of Paul Benjamin, a man obsessed with revenge and private justice. Revenge against the criminals—the muggers, the murderers, and the rapists who prey on the innocent and the helpless. Death Sentence is the continuing saga of the hero of Death Wish, an ordinary man driven to vigilantism by the brutal rape and murder of his wife and daughter. When Paul moves to Chicago to get away from his past, he knows he is going to continue his violent and private war. He also knows this time he might get caught. What he does not expect is to fall in love with a beautiful woman who is more dangerous to him than the men he stalks.
