    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 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.

    Praise for The Silent Corner

    “Gripping . . . The paranoia and mystery increase as the story unfolds. . . . Koontz has created [a] wonderful character in Jane Hawk. . . . Koontz rocks it again.”—Associated Press
     
    “In this era of stingy text-message prose, Mr. Koontz is practically Shakespeare. . . . The Silent Corner brims with both action and emotion.”Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
     
    The Silent Corner 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.”Mystery Scene
     
    “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)
     
    “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.”—Minneapolis Star-Tribune
     
    “Long an A-list bestseller, Koontz has always delivered the goods. . . . [His] varied bibliography now adds a new series and an exciting new heroine.”Booklist
     
    “Fantastically written (as always by Mr. Koontz) . . . You are riveted on page one. . . . 5 stars!”Suspense Magazine

      An excellent work. However, fiction is fiction and I do not like being left hanging.
    • No ending

      Ok - so after making me wait for months to read it, The Silent Corner now has me gasping for more! Dean Koontz does not disappoint - his unique way of telling a story is unchanged, and leaves me with the hope of more to come, as usual! His characters are rich and colorful and all his own. Please don't make me wait too long for the next installment!

      Loved it. This was a thrilling book I read in less than 3 days. I tried really hard to make it last, but I had a hard time putting it down. I've been a fan of Dean Koontz for many years. I anxiously await the second book.

      I have loved Mr. Koontz's work for many, many years, and eagerly await each new one. But "The Silent Corner" is the exception; in this particular book the prose was clunky, the characters were wooden, and the plot was silly. And the ending...a "cliff hanger" cheat. Am actually sorry to have spent money on this one.

      Being a long time Koontz fan I was thrilled (pun intended) to read the first book in this new series by him. This book was wonderful!! It was a complete change from any of the other Koontz books that I have read before. Jane Hawk is a great character and the storyline was riveting. I am never disappointed with anything this author does. I felt like I was right there with Jane on her suspenseful and thrilling journey. I am looking forward to the next book in this exciting new series by one of my favorite authors.

      I really enjoyed THE SILENT CORNER. Caught up in Koontz brand of storytelling, I found myself anxiously turning each page to see what horror Jane would have to face next. For the most part, I was enraptured by THE SILENT CORNER but occasionally it got a little too descriptive, upsetting the character connects and the flow. This is the first time I'm reading a Dean Koontz novel and I can tell you now it won't be my last. Koontz writes a memorizing and riveting tale that just grabs the reader in its clutches. I received this ARC copy of The Silent Corner from Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine - Bantan. This is my honest and voluntary review.
