Jane Hawk Series #4
The Forbidden Door by Dean Koontz is the very highly recommended fourth thriller in the Jane Hawk series.
Jane Hawk is still on the run from
Arcadians, a secret widespread secret group whose nefarious plans
include enslavement of most of society through mind-controlling
nanotechnology. They have killed her husband and others. They have
enslaved even more. Jane is using all her skills to escape capture by
them. Now her son Travis is in danger of being captured by them and she
has to save him.
For those reading the series, it is a given that you will want to
continue it to find out what happens next. Jane herself is not quite in
the forefront as much in this novel, but we are introduced to some new
characters. The bad guys are terrifyingly evil and their reach is
widespread. Those Jane can trust and the people who are fighting for the
truth are wonderfully heroic. The crossing into the forbidden door is a
ghastly and horrifying event. The heart-pounding action is non-stop and
relentless, ensuring that you will read this at a fast pace since it
will be difficult to set it down.
The series now includes: The Silent Corner; The Whispering Room; The Crooked Staircase; The Forbidden Door.
While this fourth book in the series isn't quite as strong as the
previous three, it is an essential bridge novel that is likely setting
up the series for an explosive fifth installment, The Night Window. The Jane Hawk series is a winner!
