Summary
<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • A dazzling new series, a pure adrenaline rush, debuts with Jane Hawk, a remarkable heroine certain to become an icon of suspense</b><br /><br /> <b><i>“I very much need to be dead.”</i></b><br /><br />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.<br /><br /> 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 <i>why</i>, 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.<br /><br /> 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.<br /><br /><b>Jane Hawk’s story continues in <i>The Whispering Room</i>.</b><br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>The Silent Corner</i></b><br /><br />“Gripping . . . The paranoia and mystery increase as the story unfolds. . . . Koontz has created [a] wonderful character in Jane Hawk. . . . Koontz rocks it again.”<b>—Associated Press</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “In this era of stingy text-message prose, Mr. Koontz is practically Shakespeare. . . . <i>The Silent Corner</i> brims with both action and emotion.”<b>—<i>Pittsburgh Post-Gazette</i></b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “<i>The Silent Corner </i>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.”<b>—<i>Mystery Scene</i></b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “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.”<b>—<i>Kirkus Reviews</i> (starred review)</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “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.”<b>—Minneapolis<i> Star-Tribune</i></b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Long an A-list bestseller, Koontz has always delivered the goods. . . . [His] varied bibliography now adds a new series and an exciting new heroine.”<b>—<i>Booklist</i></b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Fantastically written (as always by Mr. Koontz) . . . You are riveted on page one. . . . 5 stars!”<b>—<i>Suspense Magazine</i></b>
