The cracking new thriller from No.1 New York Times bestseller Dean Koontz. If you like Jack Reacher or Jason Bourne, you will love rogue FBI agent Jane Hawk.

'I will come for you. Nothing can stop me!'

Rogue FBI agent Jane Hawk is on the trail of the members of a murderous organization who drove her husband - and scores of other fine individuals - to commit suicide for no explicable reason.

After discovering their plan to subjugate the world by means of an insidious new technology, she has been hunting them down one by one. Now she is America's most wanted fugitive, and the organization is closing in on her beloved five-year-old son, whom she sent into protective hiding with her dearest friends.

Faced with insurmountable odds, but armed with a mother's love for her son, Jane will stop at nothing to save him. But even if she can get to him in time there's still the risk that the forbidden door will be opened and an unimaginable terror unleashed.

Praise for The Silent Corner:

'Readers will clamor for more tales involving Hawk and her quest for justice. Koontz rocks it again' Washington Times

'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, starred review

Dean Koontz

When he was a senior in college, Dean Koontz won an Atlantic Monthly fiction competition and has been writing ever since. His books are published in 38 languages. He has sold 400,000,000 copies, a figure that currently increases by more than 17 million copies per year.

Twelve of his novels have risen to number one on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list (One Door Away From Heaven, From the Corner of His Eye, Midnight, Cold Fire, The Bad Place, Hideaway, Dragon Tears, Intensity, Sole Survivor, The Husband, Odd Hours, and Relentless), making him one of only a dozen writers ever to have achieved that milestone. Fourteen of his books have risen to the number one position in paperback. His books have also been major bestsellers in countries as diverse as Japan and Sweden.

The New York Times has called his writing “psychologically complex, masterly and satisfying.” The New Orleans Times-Picayune said Koontz is, “at times lyrical without ever being naive or romantic. [He creates] a grotesque world, much like that of Flannery O’Conner or Walker Percy … scary, worthwhile reading.” Rolling Stone has hailed him as “America’s most popular suspense novelist.”

Dean Koontz was born and raised in Pennsylvania. He graduated from Shippensburg State College (now Shippensburg University), and his first job after graduation was with the Appalachian Poverty Program, where he was expected to counsel and tutor underprivileged children on a one-to-one basis. His first day on the job, he discovered that the previous occupier of his position had been beaten up by the very kids he had been trying to help and had landed in the hospital for several weeks. The following year was filled with challenge but also tension, and Koontz was more highly motivated than ever to build a career as a writer. He wrote nights and weekends, which he continued to do after leaving the poverty program and going to work as an English teacher in a suburban school district outside Harrisburg. After a year and a half in that position, his wife, Gerda, made him an offer he couldn’t refuse: “I’ll support you for five years,” she said, “and if you can’t make it as a writer in that time, you’ll never make it.” By the end of those five years, Gerda had quit her job to run the business end of her husband’s writing career.

Dean Koontz lives with his wife, Gerda, and the enduring spirit of their golden retriever, Trixie, in southern California.
