The Silent Corner 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.

Don’t miss any of Dean Koontz’s gripping Jane Hawk thrillers:

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 Review

  • The Silent Corner

    By Maddie Matsu
    I have read other books about ghosts, vampires, murder, and werewolves. This by far, Is The SCARIEST book I have ever read. I pray to God that no scientist is actually working on these theories!
  • Absolute rubbish

    By Matt1859
    Author uses 1000 pages to tell a 250 page story. Worst book ever read
  • Another excellent book by Dean Koontz

    By par4cource
    So well written you just have to keep reading. Well done characters, interesting plot line. I can’t wait to read the next one.
  • Solid Read

    By Veldehar
    I’m not a huge Koontz fan, but I had this one recommended to me. It’s not in my wheelhouse for storytelling, but I enjoyed the read, and will certainly check out Book 2 in the series.
  • Strong beginning

    By Nothanks33
    Extremely well done detail. Very believable story, that keeps the reader engrosses and anxious. The ending seems a bit sudden, but that adds to the strength of the story. Will be reading the series one right after the other.
  • Great Book...but

    By Itismine
    Loved this book, but the ending was very disappointing and anticlimactic.
  • Fraud

    By kc75070
    no way Koontz wrote this book…the person that wrote this doesn’t know what the hell they are doing….like a clumsy 16yo boy trying to get to second base…….this ‘author’ has diahrea of the theasaurus … many unnecessary words….after 4 chapters…I knew 1. this wasn’t written by Koontz and 2. only fake reviewers or idiots would give this trash anything more than one star
  • 2 thumbs up!!!

    By Skeeter an
    Outstanding series!! Absolutely one of his best. Looking forward to the next one.
  • The Wispering Room

    By Jacobo1943
    Once again mind blowing experience by the master of this genre and the most creative wallpapering for locations and characters. As I’m writing this I have began the next book with extreme fear of loosing any of the good guys/girls.....Sir you simply rock. PS. I’m sorry that I failed to review the Silent Corner I’m afraid I didn’t want to wait to star reading the next chapter of this amazing story.
  • Master of Description

    By Wasted Monday.
    Even F. Scott himself would have admired the visually descriptive narrative of this very talented author. This takes reading from a simply exciting pleasure to an educational cornucopia of unlimited portions. The subjects offered are close enough to reality to find a believable home in the mind, yet far enough away to slip in a few hours of restful sleep before this world enters yet another tribulation of chaos. One can’t wait for the ever evolving portrait of Jane Hawk to once again print itself out in even more definitive color on the black and white pages of such highly literate fiction (if in fact it is fiction). Total enjoyment.
