blurb: NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 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.
“Koontz continues the incredible saga of the robust character of Jane Hawk, and it’s as terrific as the others in the series.”—Associated Press
“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. 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.

Praise for The Forbidden Door
“Compelling and enthralling.”—New York Journal of Books
“Mind-blowing. . . [a] gripping series . . . a thrill ride. [Dean Koontz is] able to distract you for hours.”—Bookreporter
“Koontz is on another roll with a new series that boasts a juicy premise and a compelling star. . . . Pure gold.”—Booklist
My review: When Jane’s enemies close in on her son, she determines to get to him first. Unfortunately, it might not be that easy. The Arcadians are implanting people in the area he’s located in and they’re beginning a search. Something goes wrong with these shells though and one by one they deteriote to a primitive state. Now, Jane has not only the Arcadians to deal with but these lost slaves to their masters.
Highly intensive book! From the search of Clare and Ancel Hawk by the Arcadians to the steep entry into the area where Jane’s son is. Something could go wrong at any moment and it usually does! Book Four in the series but you don’t have to read the others to understand. I started with book two.
