Based on one of Stephen Kingís most intense short
stories, Dolanís Cadillac is a suspense thriller in
the vein of The Dead Zone and The Secret Window.
Tom Robinson is a peaceful, law-abiding school teacher.
When his bride Elizabeth accidentally witnesses a murder, he finds himself on a road straight to hell. The killer is
James Dolan, Las Vega's most ruthless and untouchable mob
boss. Elizabeth agrees to testify against him and soon we find
out just why Dolan has remained untouched. Anyone who dares to
go up against him faces deadly consequences. In Elizabethís
case, it's a bomb strapped to the bottom of a car.
Devastated by her death, Robinson tries all the legal
channels at his disposal to bring Dolan to justice. But
without hard evidence, Dolan remains free, able to run his
empire seemingly untouchable. Frustrated and alone, Robinson
begins to receive "visits" from his dead wife urging
him to seek revenge. Is Elizabeth really reaching beyond the
grave, or has he begun his slow decent into insanity? Robinson
continues to hear the voices and is driven to construct his
own plan -- an elaborate and perilous one-in-a-million shot.
Joining a dangerous road construction crew of ex-convicts, he battles the heat and dangers of the Nevada desert working by day, and at night trying to infiltrate Dolan's underworld. Haunted by the ghost of wife, Robinson transforms himself into an obsessed vengeance machine, pushing himself beyond the breaking point of mind, body and spirit.
When the two men finally meet deep in the heart of the desert, Dolan's Cadillac climaxes with an amazing test
of wills - the ultimate duel in the sun. The Cadillac, which
has been Dolan's armor, may likely become his tomb.
This is Vengeance, Stephen King Style.
