The Silent Corner Book Summary

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.

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 Silent Corner - Dean Koontz Book Reviews

  • Silent Room (Bamma342)

    Fantastic book!!! Read it all night, just couldn't put it down. What a great cast of characters and a thrilling plot.
  • Silent Corner (GE2247)

    Excellent until the end but no conclusion.
  • The Silent Corner (Coolraye)

    Excellent! However, I want a better ending or a sequel, to tell us of Jane and Travis moving on.
  • The Silent Corner (Star Oak)

    I'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.
  • Really disappointed (The Real Squeaks)

    It was a good read up until the end. The ending was so abrupt and felt so unfinished that it’s as if Koontz just got tired of the project and wrote “The End.”
  • The silent corner (kasi159)

    First in the drain Hawks series. Terrific
  • Amazing Story Stelling!!! (Karma1221)

    Mr. Koontz never disappoints! Engaging and intriguing as usual! Did not want to put down , thank you for sharing masterful mind of writing. Can't wait for the next two !!
  • The Silent Corner (ken blackledge)

    Great Book!! Best story that I have read in many years. I could not put it down; even got into trouble with my missus for reading too much. A BIG THANK YOU to MR DEAN KOONTZ.
  • I had grown weary..... (Jsmwoods)

    ...of this very successful author, but this new novel and character have relit my reading light. Looking forward to the sequel.
  • The Silent Corner (TessaZoey)

    The 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.
