Summary
"Jane Hawk--fiction's most relentless, resourceful, stunning new heroine--continues her battle against a murderous conspiracy in the riveting sequel to The Silent Corner. "No time to delay. Do what you were born to do. Fame will be yours when you do this." These are the words that ring in the mind of mild-mannered, beloved schoolteacher Cora Gundersun--just before she takes her own life, and many others', in a shocking act of carnage. When the disturbing contents of her secret journal are discovered, it seems certain that she must have been insane. But Jane Hawk knows better. In the wake of her husband's inexplicable suicide--and the equally mysterious deaths of scores of other exemplary individuals--Jane picks up the trail of a secret cabal of powerful players who think themselves above the law and beyond punishment. But the ruthless people bent on hijacking America's future for their own monstrous ends never banked on a highly trained FBI agent willing to go rogue--and become the nation's most wanted fugitive--in order to derail their insidious plans to gain absolute power with a terrifying technological breakthrough. Driven by love for her lost husband and by fear for the five-year-old son she has sent into hiding, Jane Hawk has become an unstoppable predator. Those she is hunting will have nowhere to run when her shadow falls across them. Acclaim for Dean Koontz's previous Jane Hawk novel,The Silent Corner "Gripping. The paranoia and mystery increase as the story unfolds. Koontz has created [a] wonderful character in Jane Hawk. Koontz rocks it again."--Associated Press "In this era of stingy text-message prose, Mr. Koontz is practically Shakespeare. The Silent Corner brims with both action and emotion."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "The Silent Corner is vintage Dean Koontz: paranoia-fueled suspense. sleek and highly realized action, developed characters, and more twists and turns than any two ordinary novels combined. As relevant to current events as it is audacious. amongst Dean Koontz's finest contemporary work."--Mystery Scene "A proven specialist in action scenes, Koontz pulls off some doozies here. The book is full of neat touches. And the prose, as always in a Koontz novel, is first-rate. Perhaps Koontz's leanest, meanest thriller, this initial entry in a new series introduces a smart, appealing heroine who can outthink as well as outshoot the baddest of bad dudes."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "The latest page-turner by Dean Koontz introduces readers to Jane Hawk. An inspired choice for a protagonist. action, zippy dialogue and a winning character at the center of the book, part of a new series by Koontz."--Minneapolis Star-Tribune "Long an A-list bestseller, Koontz has always delivered the goods. [His] varied bibliography now adds a new series and an exciting new heroine."--Booklist "Fantastically written (as always by Mr. Koontz). You are riveted on page one. 5 stars!"--Suspense Magazine"--
