NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Jane Hawk—fiction’s most relentless, resourceful, stunning new heroine—continues her battle against a murderous conspiracy in the riveting sequel to The Silent Corner. “No time to delay. Do what you were born to do. Fame will be yours when you do this.” These are the words that ring in the mind of mild-mannered, beloved schoolteacher Cora Gundersun—just before she takes her own life, and many others’, in a shocking act of carnage. When the disturbing contents of her secret journal are discovered, it seems certain that she must have been insane. But Jane Hawk knows better. In the wake of her husband’s inexplicable suicide—and the equally mysterious deaths of scores of other exemplary individuals—Jane picks up the trail of a secret cabal of powerful players who think themselves above the law and beyond punishment. But the ruthless people bent on hijacking America’s future for their own monstrous ends never banked on a highly trained FBI agent willing to go rogue—and become the nation’s most wanted fugitive—in order to derail their insidious plans to gain absolute power with a terrifying technological breakthrough. Driven by love for her lost husband and by fear for the five-year-old son she has sent into hiding, Jane Hawk has become an unstoppable predator. Those she is hunting will have nowhere to run when her shadow falls across them. Don’t miss any of Dean Koontz’s gripping Jane Hawk thrillers: THE SILENT CORNER • THE WHISPERING ROOM • THE CROOKED STAIRCASE • THE FORBIDDEN DOOR • THE NIGHT WINDOW (Coming Soon!) Praise for The Whispering Room “Koontz has never exactly shied away from complex characters or situations. And this situation gets very complex indeed, as Jane pursues the people behind the conspiracy with the kind of single-minded relentlessness that makes the book absolutely spellbinding. As good as The Silent Corner was, this one’s even better. . . . Koontz is on another roll with a new series that boasts a juicy premise and a compelling star. . . . Pure gold.”—Booklist (starred review) “A deeply layered, satisfying thriller that is character-driven and nearly impossible to put down . . . grounded in many real-world, current issues . . . [The Whispering Room] never loses sight of the classic political/sci-fi/thriller elements that make it so much fun to read.”—Bookreporter

The CoolKids is the story of the last week of high school for instantly iconic idealist Bartholomew Moriarty. Bart is no ordinary teenager; he's that one kid in every class, whose superior worldview and punk rock shoot-from-the-hip style make him a thorn in everyone's side. He's the product of a scene now 30 yearsin the making, leaning on words like "integrity" and "credibility" to bridge any gap in logic, and he advocates with fire andbrimstone from one of the most extreme teenage points of view: Hardcore Straight Edge Vegan. The suburban tranquility that surrounds him is in marked contrast to his music and its militant call to rebellion as well as his obsession with the brands that define his identity and the superiority that adherence to his own strict code creates. Bart is caught up in thestruggle of the ages: metalheads against jocks, jocks against crombies, crombies against muggles, muggles against metalheads, and everyone against that fringe group of Hardcore Straight Edge Vegans. It's a heated battle, the coveted title of The Coolkids has been at stake for many years, but that is all coming to an end next week, that crown being laid to rest at a ceremony called graduation. As leader of his cutting edge clique, his gang's idealism starts to change as the forces of graduation push them to make choices about their future; rumors of friends going off to college and getting jobs push Bart to a state of paranoia as his social movement seems to be coming to an abrupt end. If he can stop graduation, convince his friends not to go to college, or prove their superiority to the other cliques and take his movement to a wider audience, just maybe he'll be able to save everything he's fought so hard to establish.
