I'm going to the police!

I'm going to tell them everything!

Read my lips! Cops! Policemen!

You're gonna die like she died!

Kiss your white ass goodbye, my man!


Stay in your cars! Stay in your cars!

Cut the power!

Cut the goddamn power! Jesus! Cut the power!

- What do you figure?

- JoJo was a dealer.

He gets hassle from Randy Viscovich,

stabs him and gets shot by another dealer.

- Why?

- They don't need a reason to kill each other.

Sergeant Reiner,

this kid saw the guy who did the shooting.

- Not his face, but the car.

- Yeah?

- Yeah. It was a Toronado. A blue Toronado.

- Did you get the license?

- I got the last three numbers. It was 226.

- Sure that's all you remember?

- I ain't a fucking detective, man. You are.

- Come on.

Nice kid.

- So, Phil, go play detective.

- Right.

- Hello?

- Mr. Kersey?

- Yes.

- You got my note?

- Who is this?

- I think we should meet

to discuss something of mutual interest.

I'm not going anywhere

until I know who this is and what you want.

If you refuse, I'll tell the police all I know,

and I know a lot.

Do I have your attention now? Good.

If you look out your window,

you'll see a limousine out front.

I'm looking forward to our meeting.

Mr. Kersey.

Good evening, Mr. Kersey.

Or should I say, Mr. Vigilante?

Listen, if this is about blackmail,

you're wasting your time.

This place must be worth more than...

than I can make the rest of my life.

- Do you know who I am?

- Should I?

Does the name Nathan White

mean anything to you?

You own a newspaper.

It's not your money I'm after, Kersey.

It's your professional skill.

I want you to kill someone.

My wife died in a car crash ten years ago.

My daughter Lisa became my whole life.

Last year, she started college.

Brian Garfield

Brian Francis Wynne Garfield (born January 26, 1939) is an American novelist and screenwriter. He wrote his first published book at the age of eighteen and wrote several novels under such pen names as "Frank Wynne" and "'Brian Wynne" before gaining prominence when his book Hopscotch (1975) won the 1976 Edgar Award for Best Novel. He is best known for his 1972 novel Death Wish, which was adapted for the 1974 film of the same title, followed by four sequels, and the 2018 remake. His follow-up 1975 sequel to Death Wish, Death Sentence, was very loosely adapted into the 2007 film of the same name; it had an entirely different storyline, but with the novel's same look on vigilantism. Garfield is also the author of The Thousand-Mile War: World War II in Alaska and the Aleutians, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for History. Garfield's latest book, published in 2007, is Meinertzhagen, the biography of controversial British intelligence officer Richard Meinertzhagen. Garfield was born in New York, the son of Frances O'Brien, a portrait artist, and George Garfield. He is the nephew of chorus dancer and stage manager Chester O'Brien. more…
