Dean Koontz is one of my favorite authors. The Husband is one of my favorites by him. You can always expect his books to be fast-paced and have you at the edge of your seat.
The Husband is about Mitch who is the owner of two landscaping businesses. Koontz only gives the reader time to establish who Mitch is before he receives a phone call that his wife has been kidnapped and he will need 2 million to get her back. He initially takes this as a joke, but the kidnapper has him look out the window and kills a man walking his dog.–I won’t get too much into spoilers, I always hate those.
Anyhow Mitch is worried because as a landscaper there is no way he can scrounge up that much money. Eventually, he contacts his brother for help and things only get more intense from there.
The Husband is a fast-paced suspense and has you wondering just who can Mitch truly trust? Can he trust his wife? Can he trust the detective? Can he trust his brother? The one thing that remains constant is that Mitch loves his wife wholeheartedly and will do anything to get her back.
