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 the lives of 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 whom 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Koontz takes a bit of a risk in making his lead character so seemingly unhinged—Jane really appears, at the beginning of the book, like she’s dangerously close to self-destructive obsession—but then Koontz has never exactly shied away from complex characters or situations. And this situation gets very complex indeed, as Jane pursues the people behind the conspiracy with the kind of single-minded relentlessness that makes the book absolutely spellbinding. As good as The Silent Corner was, this one’s even better. Booklist (starred review)
“Employing her impressive skill set that combines tech-savviness with physical prowess, she methodically pursues the powerful and evil masterminds behind this malevolent conspiracy…The results she achieves both satisfy and leave the door open for Jane’s promised return. Verdict: Koontz delivers another winner.” Library Journal
