The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz Book Summary

THE FIRST NOVEL IN THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING JANE HAWK SERIES
 
Meet Jane Hawk—a remarkable new heroine certain to become an icon of suspense. “This gripping thriller grabs readers from the first few pages and sweeps them along to the rousing finale.”—Booklist

“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.

Don’t miss any of Dean Koontz’s gripping Jane Hawk thrillers:
THE SILENT CORNER • THE WHISPERING ROOM • THE CROOKED STAIRCASE • THE FORBIDDEN DOOR • THE NIGHT WINDOW

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 Silent Corner (Dean Koontz) Book Reviews

SadI 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..Score: 1/5

RivetingWill hold your attention from start to finish. Highly recommended..Score: 5/5

The Silent CornerExcellent! However, I want a better ending or a sequel, to tell us of Jane and Travis moving on..Score: 2/5

Another great readDean Koontz is the only author whose books I can get into from page one. This one is no exception. If you’re a fan of Koontz you will not be disappointed except to know you’re finished and wish there was more..Score: 5/5

HelpI understand that dean koontz is a literary legend but this prose is so dense that you could take excerpts of this book and piece together a short story called "every thought dean koontz has ever had about the way clouds look" and it would still make me fall asleep a little slower than this did.Score: 3/5

Grabs the reader in its clutches.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..Score: 4/5

No titleJust comment! We have read a lot of Dean Koontz Books and all have had an ending. So I would say he has a ghost writer. Not him!.Score: 1/5

I COULD NOT put it down!This book is rich in Koontz’s ever-present triple threat: intense, psychological, slow-burning. The heat rises and rises, and it keeps on delivering until the very last word. I cannot wait to see where Jane is going to turn next, who will be next on her ‘Hamlet List,’ and how those antagonists will manifest and connect to one another. As any Koontz readgular (regular reader) knows, So Cal is his wheelhouse as much as is his triple threat. But....I’m hoping Jane goes cross-country, visiting places known and unknown, big and small, with many different personalities and backgrounds; but with similar views, backgrounds, and connections - just as this book did incredibly well - just across our vast nation. One-underground-nation-under-God like; and, unfortunately, frighteningly realistic in our world’s life cycle at this time. Read it, read it, read it. Prepare to spend all your free time reading it until you finish - it’s THAT addicting. Here’s to Jane - a woman so unknown yet so magnetic you find yourself friends with her without knowing too much about her. Life imitates art! 😉 Thanks, Koontz, for my fall-to-winter reading escape!.Score: 5/5

IncompleteMaybe it’s just me and my lack of comprehension, but I feel as though I was dropped into an already ongoing storyline, and then plucked back out of it when the author got tired of writing. Many plot holes and unresolved questions abound..Score: 2/5

Absolute rubbishAuthor uses 1000 pages to tell a 250 page story. Worst book ever read.Score: 1/5

Loved it!!!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..Score: 5/5

The Silent CornerThe only thing good about this book is the title. When Koontz got to the ending, he put away his computer and said "I'm done." No matter that the story was not done. Terrible read..Score: 1/5

Poor writingI guess you need to like Koontz’s writing style. I never have and don’t understand why I bought this book. To me it was a interesting storyline spoiled by rambling paragraphs that over described everything. Lesson learned..Score: 2/5

The Silent CornerI'm sorry. Pretty well-structured storyline, but the incidental details are so laughable I couldn't suspend disbelief to save my life. A music store called Vinyl's tatted staff plays Kansas' "Dust in the Wind"? The Beatles? I'm 65 years old and that's lame. Does the author know anybody under 60? It's hard to let the suspense build when the details are so creaky. The simpleminded libertarianism is another flow killer. Maybe he doesn't read the news in 2017? Fairly obvious the author embeds his storylines with his own tastes and preferences. Fair enough. But when those haven't evolved since the early seventies it is kind of sad. I read a lot of books. I was hoping to discover another great thriller author. Bummed..Score: 1/5

The Silent CornerOk - 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.

Engaging read that effectively maintains your interestI liked the book. It kept my interest throughout to the point where I wanted to know the outcome. I just wish it was more “gritty” and that the characters (particularly the protagonist) had more nance and depth. I also recognize (and reluctantly, if not resignedly, accept), however, there will be a degree of “Disney-fication” in order for a book to be palatable to a broader (read, New York Times Bestseller) audience. Good vacation, or beach, read..Score: 3/5
