The Husband, by 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.”

The caller is the kidnapper and tells him to look across the street just at a man walking his dog just as the man gets shot in the head. The murder tell Mitch the kidnappers are serious and that he is being watched.

The police come when the police is called about the murder, but Mitch is afraid to tell them anything and then has to speak with detective Sandy Taggart and finds that he is being treated like a suspect. When he gets home, he sees that the house has been staged to look like there was a fight and can see that he is being framed for killing his wife.

The plot twists and turns and is another masterpiece of plotting by Dean Koontz.

“A man begins dying at the moment of his birth. Most People live in denial of Death's patient courtship until, late in life and deep in sickness, they become aware of him sitting bedside.”

“She can put her life in Mitch's strong hands and fall at once into a dreamless sleep. In a sense, that is what marriage is about-a good marriage-a total trusting with your heart, your mind, your life.”

“The secret is not to think, we think in words. And what lies beyond the reality we see is a truth that words can't contain, the secret is to feel.”

“Love scrubs the worst stains clean. Anyway, there can be no retreat in the face of evil, only resistance. And commitment.”
