About this deal

Of course there are also the series books he's written a few seemed never to have had a resolution and we're still waiting (like the Moonlight Bay "trilogy". was published in 1999 and we're still waiting for . My late wife passed away waiting for the completion of that trilogy. Go figure. Then there are books like that ends as if more is to come, but it never continues.

A gripping and enthralling follow-up to The Network (praised by Steve Berry as “mandatory reading for any thriller aficionado”), in which a conspiracy with far-reaching implications threatens to engulf our heroes. This was an entertaining read. Not very believable but entertaining. I agree that it would probably make a good movie. I haven't read many of the author's books but what I have read were more in the horror genre. This reminded me of Robin Cook, Michael Crichton, or Ira Levin. If you or someone you know may be struggling with suicidal thoughts, you can call the U.S. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255) any time day or night, or chat online. The claim: Avicii, Chester Bennington, Anthony Bourdain and Chris Cornell all died by suicide while working on the film 'Silent Children' This is mandatory reading for any thriller aficionado." -- Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author Associated Press, April 26, 2018, Avicii's family says the late DJ 'could not go on any longer' in new statement

Riveting and relentless . . .. It’s a truly scary tale, the implications of which are even more dire because it’s grounded in reality.”— Providence Journal Wedecided to stop the project where it was and that had nothing to do with Chris Cornell ever," Gorson said. Our rating: FalseA recent and still grieving widow, Jane has taken a leave of absence from the FBI to deal with her husband's suicide - which she doesn't believe for a nanosecond really happened. Setting out to find the truth, she begins with a visit to another recent military widow whose death also was deemed a suicide because she suspects the same person or persons are responsible. Further digging turns up several similar incidents - both of military and non-military people - but no apparent connection.

This is mandatory reading for any thriller aficionado.”— Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author What Koontz has done well is provide an interesting premise and married it with the things I loved about his books. Much of The Silent Corner has a science fiction(y) vibe to it. How in the hell do you convince someone to kill themselves? That shit's scary that it could be done and someone would want to have it done to someone else. He keeps the suspense high using short chapters and keeping the story moving by not going on and on and on about how awesome the two German Shepard guard dogs.

There is not a lot of realism in this book either. There is some things based on age that didn't make sense for Jane or her husband. She's late 20s and would put Sidney Bristow from Alias to shame. I forget what age her husband was, but apparently he was a wunderkind with his rank. Sigh. The Associated Press reported that Avicii died April 20, 2018. Bennington diedJuly 20, 2017,according to an autopsy report.USA TODAY reportedthat Bourdain died June 8, 2018. Cornell died May 8, 2017,according to an autopsy report.

The Hook I've read many books by Dean Koontz and have enjoyed most. I like when an author takes a risk and tries something different. Fans often want the same ol' and don't take kindly to a book going in a new direction. When I hear Koontz was throwing his hat into the series ring, I thought, “Why not?”. No one tells Jane no. She's fearless it seems. Plus, her training at Quantico gives her a firm upper-hand to any layman embarking on this journey. Before I get into my review, I must say this. I would have probably enjoyed this book a lot more if I had read the first book. To me, this book should not be read as a standalone novel. So many of the issues I have in this book, stem from not knowing what happened in the first book. I give Koontz credit. This is a fast paced book with no downtime. And he's got a hell of an imagination. He goes into enough detail to make a person think, in the way a good science fiction book does. And there is plenty of suspense. How will Jane, as a modern day David, slay this Goliath?

It is conceded by the defence that the money arrived. What happened to that we shall never know. That is his affair and it is not for us to pry. It will be a sad day for this country when a leading politician cannot spend his election expenses in any way he sees fit. The writing wasn't great and the flow was awful. The chapters were choppy and we just kept jumping from scene to scene. You don't even have a chance to absorb what's going on since most of the writing only gets descriptive when describing guns, how to clean them, and what ammo is being used. I wish I was kidding. And I am not saying this because I am anti-gun. I was born and raised in PA. I have been around guns since I was a pre-teen. It's just this whole book is some weird military hybrid just like the last couple of books and it took me a long time to muddle through this. Jane Hawk is a woman on the run. She's mourning her husband's suicide and running from her past; she's running toward answers. An FBI agent on leave, Jane is a resourceful, intelligent protagonist who suspects a conspiracy: the suicide rate in the United States is increasing exponentially, and each suicide is stranger than the last. Triggered by her successful and ambitious husband's own suicide, Jane decides to take actions and solve this intriguing mystery after a lot of research and planning. The deeper into the rabbit hole she goes (and said rabbit hole goes quite deep!) she meets more and more adversaries; people in positions of power know Jane Hawk's name and are not afraid to prevent her from following her instincts. They want her silenced — killed, even. Nearly three years on from the start of the pandemic in Britain however, there was a stark reminder of the continuing reach of conspiracy theories on Wednesday when Tory MP Andrew Bridgen lost the party whip after comparing the use of Covid vaccines to the Holocaust. Lewis’s journey away from the beliefs that once enveloped his life meanwhile stands in contrast to others for whom Covid-19 conspiracy theories have acted as a gateway drug to other, more extreme views. Anyway, changed my view of Dean Koontz completely. AND while I continued to run on books that left me decidedly blah and a few I completely disliked on the whole things changed greatly for the better.
