"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 hes 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
Mitchs wife and hes named the price
for her safe return. The caller doesnt
care that Mitch runs a small two-man
landscaping operation and has no way of
raising such a vast sum. Hes 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. Hes got seventy-two hours to
prove it. He has to find the two million
by then. But hell pay a lot more. Hell

manner sure to captivate most readers,
though some may find the ending
anticlimactic." - Publishers Weekly.
"Starred Review. Koontz is no less an artist for his championing of the good and his determination to have readers identify with it, as this hair-raising thriller attests." - Booklist.
