Publisher's Summary

A dazzling new series debuts with a remarkable heroine certain to become a new icon of suspense, propelled by the singular narrative genius of New York Times best-selling 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 void that remains stands his widow, Jane, surrounded by questions destined to go unanswered...unless she does what all the grief, fear, confusion, and fury inside of her demand: find the truth, no matter what.

There is no one else to speak for Jane's husband - or the others who have followed him into death at their own hands. Although people of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have recently been committing suicide in surprising numbers, no one else is willing to give up everything just to seek, to find, to know. No one except Jane. But ahead lies only risk. Because those arrayed against her are legion...and dangerously devoted to protecting something profoundly important - or terrifying - enough to exterminate any and all in their way.

Too many have already died, and those responsible will learn that all their malevolent power 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.

Narrator has very irritating speech pattern.

The narrator has a very irritating speech habit of pronouncing about every 35th word with an improper emphasis. I also did not like her voice when she spoke the male parts. Dean Koontz is my favorite author. this reader ruined this book for me.

Ok

Recommend to readers who enjoy crime stories with a strong female lead. The performance was good, but her child’s voice made me grit my teeth. This was not a page turner for me but I had to finish it. It left me unsatisfied but I like the main character and believe the next books in the series will be better.

Intrigued, yet...

Let me start by stating: I am a Dean Koontz fan. I have loved much of his work, many of his novels and found myself compelled by several series. I enjoyed his Frankenstein series and loved Odd Thomas. Though I was looking forward to digging into a new series, I'm left with a feeling of mild disappointment. I will read the next one because I'm intrigued with the story, and I hope I begin to love Jane Hawk the way I have loved his other characters.
I had my biggest issue with the narration. I found the performance lacking; the voice portrayals poor and distracting.

A Fantastic Start

Loved the narrator and the story. Dean Koontz is my favorite author and this is one of his best. I am loving the first of this Jane Hawk series. Looking forward to the rest of the series!

Jane Hawk keeps you riveted.

I enjoy Dean Koonz. Loved the Brother Odd series. Hopefully the Jane Hawk series lives up to the same standards. Koonz writes just on the edge of believability. With technology advancing so quickly could it be corrupted in this way. Or not? I’m looking forward to book 2.
If you are sci-fi conspiracy fan then I think you will enjoy this novel.

Eerily parallels the current events!

Classic Koontz, with his prose filled descriptions and picture perfect settings....action gallore with a heroine that manages to feel real in spite of the events happening in the book...with the suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain paralleling the story, it made for an interesting read. I would totally recommend this to anyone wanting a fast paced, well written story.

Engaging!

I thought this book was great, I loved the main character, Jane and am looking forward to reading the next two books with her. She has guts and a heart. The bad guys and the technology they use is terrifying and makes you wonder if it is even possible in the real world, and of it is, then well, even more terrifying! Dean Koontz is so good as bringing a scene alive, you almost feel like you are there. I liked the narration as well.
