The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz – Jane Hawk #1 (EPUB)
From #1 New York Times bestselling author of dark psychological suspense and modern classics of mystery and adventure comes a thriller that ventures into science, secrecy and danger.
“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.
The Silent Corner
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 is a great central character, strong and courageous, determined that nothing will stop her. The twisted use of technology in the book is a frightening prospect. Dean Koontz‘s depiction of modern surveillance technology was scary, and as we all know now, pretty much spot-on. The title of this book is perfect and makes sense once Koontz describes Jane’s attempts at evasion and escape. An intriguing and entertaining thriller.
