Jane Hawk has fallen into traps and escaped. She has been separated from the ones she loves. And she has discovered the true meaning of an ally. One who she can trust with her son’s life, and one who will stand next to her in the battle to take down the Techno Arcadians. Their nuero-web science has continued to thrive under the cover of a pyramid of influence. Well-placed people in government, military, and media are a phone call away to advance the plan to cull the world’s population of influencers, ones who might be able to sway the masses to free thinking.
The Night Window introduces four new villains at different levels of the Arcadian ladder. All have a hateful backstory and use their sadistic greed as motivation to hunt Jane. There’s not much change in her character, but the plot is far from finished. Los Angeles and the American Southwest is home to all sorts of fireballs and zombie servants of the ‘rebellion.’ And it is up to Jane to fight back and expose the conspiracy. She fights back and does it with the vengeful style that we have come to know and love.
I really enjoyed this series and thought that this addition to the arc was the most satisfying. Jane puts it all on the line and has one friend who is fleshed out and truly gets her purpose. The twists, especially the ending, are satisfying, and as with all of Koontz’s writing the details are where he wins. The guns, the gadgets, and the science. Sure, it’s outlandish at times, but it’s fun!
A series that ranks up there with any thrill-ride I’ve read. I recommend starting at The Silent Corner and work your way to this fantastic finish.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
Releases on May 14th.
