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 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 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.

    " Excellent read it in two sittings. Go Dean Koontz "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Frank | 2/1/2014

    " Another fast-paced page-turner from Koontz. I enjoyed the book and would rank it as one of Koontz' best thrillers (as opposed to his horror/paranormal books). I recently read Velocity which I also thought was very good. Would highly recommend both books. "
