Soon to be a major motion picture starring Kristen Connelly, Joan Allen, and Anthony La Paglia, Stephen King's short story, "A Good Marriage" from Full Dark, No Stars is now available as a stand-alone audio edition! Bob Anderson, Darcy's husband of more than twenty years, is away on one of his business trips, when his unsuspecting wife looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers she doesn't know her husband at all, but rather has been living with a stranger. This horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, could be the end of what Darcy though was a good marriage…

Professional reviews

"Reissued to coincide with the movie release, this noir tale from King takes us into the horror of a spouse who hides a horrendous secret. Listening to a suburban housewife discover that her husband has raped and killed numerous women brings the unsettling sensation that we can never truly know another personÑnor the actions we are each capable of performing. Jessica HechtÕs narration is marred by forced characterizations and a tendency to raise her pitch at the ends of sentences. When Hecht is simply speaking, her voice flows evenly, but it becomes artificial as she steps into character voices. This story was included in KingÕs previously released work FULL DARK, NO STARS.
