The Husband by Dean Koontz

The Husband by Dean Koontz: I have remarkably little to say about this one. As it says on the cover, this is about a gardener who gets a phonecall from his wife’s kidnappers, demanding two million dollars in sixty hours. It’s got a lot of good suspense, though the ending is so tidy as to be unbelievable. I like Koontz, but I’m glad I only paid a dollar for this one.

  1. sounds a bit like his book Velocity…good read but to your point, a bit of a twisted ending…I love

  2. I agree. I thought the basic plot concept was interesting, but in the end, I couldn’t figure out how everything wrapped up so neatly…it was, to me, a real deus ex machina conclusion that left me puzzled. Either I’m stupid or Koontz just trusted us to believe everything worked out fine.
