With each and every new novel, Dean Koontz raises the stakesÂand the pulse rateÂhigher than any other author. Now, in what may be his most suspenseful and heartfelt novel ever, he brings us the story of an ordinary man whose extraordinary commitment to his wife will take him on a harrowing journey of adventure, sacrifice, and redemption to the mystery of love itselfÂand to a showdown with the darkness that would destroy it forever. What would you do for love? Would you die? Would you kill? We have your wife. You can get her back for two million cash. Landscaper Mitchell Rafferty thinks it must be some kind of joke. He was in the middle of planting impatiens in the yard of one of his clients when his cell phone rang. Now heÂs standing in a normal suburban neighborhood on a bright summer day, having a phone conversation out of his darkest nightmare. Whoever is on the other end of the line is dead serious. He has MitchÂs wife and heÂs named the price for her safe return. The caller doesnÂt care that Mitch runs a small two-man landscaping operation and has no way of raising such a vast sum. HeÂs confident that Mitch will find a way. If he loves his wife enough. . . Mitch does love her enough. He loves her more than life itself. HeÂs got seventy-two hours to prove it. He has to find the two million by then. But heÂll pay a lot more. HeÂll pay anything. From its tense opening to its shattering climax, The Husband is a thriller that will hold you in its relentless grip for every twist, every shock, every revelationÂuntil it lets you go, unmistakably changed. This is a Dean Koontz novel, after all. And thereÂs no other experience quite like it. From the Hardcover more
