The Silent Corner
A dazzling new series debuts with a remarkable heroine certain to become a new icon of suspense, propelled by the singular narrative genius of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz.

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 demands: 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.

    Anyone who knows me, knows of my love for Dean Koontz. I started reading him when I was 8 years old. Although I haven't read him recently, my two absolute favorite books are the ones that veer a little away from the horror genre into something different - such as Watchers and Lightning...

    My first Dean Koontz was a success! I've always been curious about his writing, but believed he would be too scary. I'm not a horror reader, and I have no desire to be. But I couldn't help but want to see why he was such a popular author. I ran across The Silent Corner on NetGalley and...

    Action-packed, with a unique premise. Perfect for anyone who enjoys technology-based thrillers. Main character could use a bit more development in future installments so that the reader is better able to connect with/feel for her. Looking forward to seeing how her story unfolds. ...

    Despite a promising description, I was not really dazzled by The Silent Corner. There are a few things you should maybe know before you decide if you should take my word on this one:1. This is my first Dean Koontz book (I think). If I have read him before, it was a long time ago and I ...

    3.5 stars, just missing 4 stars due to a slow moving plot in the first half.I’m a long-time fan of Koontz, having read and enjoyed nearly everything he’s written. This thriller is the start of a new series featuring Jane Hawk, and is a departure from his typical horror/supern...

    This Silent Corner, by Dean Koontz, is the start of a new thriller series - featuring Jane Hawk- and is an interesting departure from his typical horror/supernatural genre. This was a 4 out of 5 stars read for me.Jane Hawk is a strong female character, and Koontz outdid himself in her ...

    I received this ARC from netgalley.com in exchange for a review. FBI Agent Jane Hawks is sure someone is killing people and making it look like suicide, including her husband. Now she must find and prove the truth before they find her.I didn't like this book too much and was mostly bor...
