When this relentless rogue FBI agent comes knocking, her adversaries will have to answer--with their lives--in the latest thrilling Jane Hawk novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Corner."We're rewriting the play, and the play is this country, the world, the future. We break Jane's heart, we'll also break her will."She was one of the FBI's top agents until she became the nation's most-wanted fugitive, a happily married woman before becoming a devastated widow. Now Jane Hawk may be all that stands between a free nation and its enslavement by a powerful secret society's terrifying mind-control technology. She couldn't save her husband, or the others whose lives have been destroyed, but equipped with superior tactical and survival skills--and the fury born of a broken heart and a hunger for justice--Jane has struck major blows against the insidious cabal.But Jane's enemies are about to hit back hard. If their best operatives can't outrun her, they mean to bring her to them, using her five-year-old son as bait. Jane knows there's no underestimating their capabilities, but she must battle her way back across the country to the remote shelter where her boy is safely hidden...for now. As she moves resolutely forward, new threats begin to emerge: a growing number of brain-altered victims driven hopelessly, violently insane. With the madness spreading like a virus, the war between Jane and her enemies will become a fight for all their lives--against the lethal terror unleashed from behind the forbidden door.Don't miss any of Dean Koontz's gripping Jane Hawk thrillers: THE SILENT CORNER - THE WHISPERING ROOM - THE CROOKED STAIRCASE - THE FORBIDDEN DOOR… (plus d'informations)

As I look back on the Jane Hawk series, "Forbidden Door" rises to the top because of its intensity. ( )

Ridiculous characterizations and interior dialogue of bad guys used up much of the verbiage of this novel and made it much longer than necessary. Could barely stand to even skiim the mess to get to the conclusion. Horrid. ( )

She was one of the FBI’s top agents until she became the nation’s most-wanted fugitive. Now Jane Hawk may be all that stands between a free nation and its enslavement by a powerful secret society’s terrifying mind-control technology. She couldn’t save her husband, or the others whose lives have been destroyed, but equipped with superior tactical and survival skills—and the fury born of a broken heart and a hunger for justice—Jane has struck major blows against the insidious cabal.

But Jane’s enemies are about to hit back hard. If their best operatives can’t outrun her, they mean to bring her running to them, using her five-year-old son as bait. Jane knows there’s no underestimating their capabilities, but she must battle her way back across the country to the remote shelter where her boy is safely hidden . . . for now. As she moves resolutely forward, new threats begin to emerge: a growing number of brain-altered victims driven hopelessly, violently insane. With the madness spreading like a virus, the war between Jane and her enemies will become a fight for all their lives—against the lethal terror unleashed from behind the forbidden door. ( )

I have to say I'm disappointed in this book. I requested The Forbidden Door from NetGalley and received an ARC version for review. I had previously read The Crooked Staircase (#3 in the Jane Hawk series) and enjoyed it.

All of the problems I had with The Crooked Staircase I have with The Forbidden Door - but now they're less excusable. The Crooked Staircase seemed to have a lot of filler 'issues' that came up for Jane to deal with, and at times it became a tedious description of a series of steps and explanations. The Forbidden Door is all of the same and even worse (or after having read one entire book like this already, maybe I just have less patience for it).

I found myself skimming quite a bit to get through the tedium, but every now and then I would miss something critical and have to go back (most notably the scene with the sassy old lady and her small dog).

I was also frustrated that the Techno Arcadian agents seemed to, in turns, be either preternaturally aware of a situation (e.g., the chalk paint situation) or deliberately choose a terrible course of action (e.g., Laurie's situation).

You feel for Jane and Travis, but there's just not a whole lot of room for character development and tender moments in the midst of all of the 'action.'

Once again, I feel as though I read a book that didn't go anywhere and had no great resolution. I won't be reading future books in the Jane Hawk series. ( )

The Forbidden Door takes a wicked turn and proves that just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. Now the real Dean Koontz shows his face.

‘They’ have been unable to capture Jane. Even when they catch up to her, she is quick and manages to escape by the skin of her teeth. So…they have set their sites on her five year old son. I love the character that is introduced here…Cornell…is absolutely fabulous.

Dean Koontz brings his characters to life and I root for the good guys who lay it all on the line. Regardless of what could happen to them, they feel compelled to do the right thing.

This is the fourth book in the Jane Hawk series. I am so disappointed I will have to wait for the next one from the library, The Night Window, the finale. I have been binge reading them and I sooooo much want to know what happens next. This is a 5 book series and needs to be read in order. The books are looooong but I have been devouring them.

This book is dedicated to Leason and Marlene Pomeroy,
affectionately known as fireball and the firecracker,
who are a wonderous delight.

At the first breeze was no more than a long sigh, breathing through the Texas high country as though expressing some sadness attendant to Nature herself.
