You should know before you even open the cover --this is it! The finale is only four-hundred-pages away. Be prepared to stay until the end before you begin. While the author has written short, crisp chapters that would allow a reader a place to pause, you will not want to do that. You've come too far and it is way too intense for a pause.
Dean Koontz introduced readers to Jane Hawk in the explosive, mind-bending first book, The Silent Corner. Since then he has ratcheted-up the psychological warfare, warped reality, and turned thousands of citizens into nano-manipulated robots. Jane was once a highly respected agent, but that seems like a lifetime ago. She's been America's Most Wanted fugitive for so long it is hard to remember what it was like not to be in hiding. She has assembled a rag-tag army of everyday citizens that have two things in common. They truly believe in Jane and they would give their lives for her. You can't buy or manipulate that kind-of loyalty. Jane plays a deadly game of cat and mouse as she whinds her way to the "impregnable center of power."
Yes, there's enough background information to read this book without being totally lost. However, to truly enjoy all the nuances, and to feel a connection with Jane, you really need to read the other books first. This is a short series, only five books. I strongly recommend reading them all. If you like suspense/thrillers you will not want to miss the Jane Hawk series. Dean Koontz created a strong, independent, ferociously loving mother that we could both relate too and cheer for. Now here we are in book five. The ending has been written. All we have to do is read fast enough to get to it. But like all book-lovers, once finished we are ready for the next adventure. I am anxious to read Dean Koontz's next novel.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz brings Jane Hawk's one-woman war to an explosive climax as the rogue FBI agent wages her final battle against a terrifying conspiracy--for vengeance, for justice, and for humanity's freedom.
Groundbreaking, wholly involving, eerily prescient and terrifyingly topical, Dean Koontz's Jane Hawk series sets a new standard for contemporary thrillers. Since her sensational debut in The Silent Corner, readers have been riveted by Jane Hawk's resolute quest to take down the influential architects of an accelerating operation to control every level of society via an army of mind-altered citizens. At first, only Jane stood against the "Arcadian" conspirators, but slowly others have emerged to stand with her, even as there are troubling signs that the "adjusted" people are beginning to spin viciously out of control. Now, in the thrilling, climactic showdown that will decide America's future, Jane will require all her resources--and more--as she confronts those at the malevolent, impregnable center of power.
