200 Word Review
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review.
The Night Window by Dean Koontz is the 5th and final Jane Hawk novel in the series. I have read many books by Koontz and am a fan of his Odd Thomas series. Somehow, I missed reading his Jane Hawk series.
I was provided with a copy of the 5th novel and, to give a fair review, needed to read the earlier books in the series. I am so glad that I did. I could not put them down! It would help, but you do not need to read the other books. However, you would be missing out on an excellent and chilling series. Koontz gives you enough information, so you have a general outline of the events leading up to The Night Window.
In the Silent Corner, the first novel, Jane begins a campaign to reveal the truth about her husband’s suicide. Early on, we learn a number of government officials and other influential individuals with the help of nanotechnology and an army of mind-altered citizens are responsible. It is the possibility of this “revolution” occurring that makes the story so disturbing. Often you find supernatural creepiness in Koontz’s books, but I found this series to be the scariest.
