Book It - The Husband

This week’s featured book:

The Husband
Author: Dean Koontz


“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 he's 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 Mitch's wife and he's named the price for her safe return. The caller doesn't care that Mitch runs a small two-man landscaping operation and has no way of raising such a vast sum. He's 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. He's got seventy-two hours to prove it. He has to find the two million by then. But he'll pay a lot more. He'll pay anything.

My Comments:

This is a great choice if you’re looking for a thriller that reads like a roller coaster ride with no brakes. The story moves quickly and the twists and turns seem to never end. You’ll be on the edge of your seat the whole time wondering what’s going to happen next, and why this mild-mannered man has been targeted. The only disappointment is the ending, which seems a little bland compared to the rest of the book. You’ll understand what I mean if you read the book. But all in all, it’s worth reading.
