Now a major motion picture, Stephen King's brilliant and terrifying story of a marriage with truly deadly secrets.

Darcy Anderson’s husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his routine business trips when the unsuspecting Darcy looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a hidden box under a worktable and in it she discovers a trove of horrific evidence that her husband is two men—one, the benign father of her children, the other, a raging rapist and murderer. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends “A Good Marriage.”

This story was originally published in Stephen King’s acclaimed collection, Full Dark, No Stars.

  • Don’t buy this “book”

    I thought this was a novel, did not realize it is two short stories. They are poorly written, I don’t think S. King had anything to do with these.
  • Short and sweet

    This book wasn't bad. It was no where near Kings best, but it got the job done. I felt like king had more story to tell, but suppressed his imagination for some odd reason. The story attached "1922" was by far a better story. Again not Kings best or close to it, but still read worthy.
  • Great Short Story!

    I read this when it was originally published and it's an awesome quick read. For those of you complaining, it does state that this was previously in a collection of short stories. Stephen King is the king of short stories.
  • Poorly written and unimaginative

    By weiner dog1
    This story seemed like Stephen King was busy but needed to get a story to the publisher and threw this one together. Most of the story is told and not shown, which is a boring technique. Don't waste your money on this one.
