Description
A dazzling new series, a pure adrenaline rush, debuts with Jane Hawk, a remarkable heroine certain to become an icon of suspense “I very much need to be dead.”These are the chilling words left behind by a man who had everything to live for—but took his own life. In the aftermath, his widow, Jane Hawk, does what all her grief, fear, and fury demand: find the truth, no matter what. People of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have been committing suicide in surprising numbers. When Jane seeks to learn why, she becomes the most-wanted fugitive in America. Her powerful enemies are protecting a secret so important—so terrifying—that they will exterminate anyone in their way. But all their power and viciousness may not be enough to stop a woman as clever as they are cold-blooded, as relentless as they are ruthless—and who is driven by a righteous rage they can never comprehend. Because it is born of love.Jane Hawk’s story continues in The Whispering Room.Advance praise for The Silent Corner“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)“This gripping thriller grabs readers from the first few pages and sweeps them along to the rousing finale.”Booklist Acclaim for Dean Koontz   “Koontz is a master of the edge-of-your-seat, paranoid thriller—and perhaps the leading American practitioner of the form.”The Star-Ledger   “Koontz writes first-rate suspense, scary and stylish.”Los Angeles Times   “There is no one who can match Dean Koontz for pure excitement when writing highly charged thrillers. . . . [He] writes thrillers that move so fast they make every other thriller writer seem to be standing still.”The Denver Post   “Dean Koontz almost occupies a genre of his own. He is a master at building suspense and holding the reader spellbound.”Richmond Times-Dispatch   “Koontz is one of the great suspense authors. . . . There’s no bestselling author of popular fiction . . . whose sentences offer more musicality. [His] characters are memorable and his unique mix of suspense and humor absorbing. . . . Great kudos to Koontz for creating, within the strictures of popular fiction . . . [a] notable novel of ideas and of moral imperatives.”Publishers Weekly   “There are few authors who can match [Koontz] for sheer page-turning power. His plots are compelling and unpredictable, the characters engaging, and the wording as sleek and on-target as a guided missile. Anything can happen.”Toledo Blade
