The Night Window by Dean Koontz. Bantam May 24, 2019.

Amazon’s blurb: The Night Window

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Jane Hawk’s one-woman war comes to an explosive climax as the rogue FBI agent gambles everything against a terrifying conspiracy, for vengeance, for justice, and for humanity’s freedom—from the author of The Silent Corner.
 
“Jane Hawk is arguably the best character Koontz has created. . . . Simply put, wow.”—Associated Press
 
A visionary young filmmaker hunted for sport across a vast Colorado ranch by the celebrated billionaire at the heart of a monstrous cabal . . .
 
A brilliant computer hacker slipping through top-secret databases a whisper ahead of security trackers, gathering the facts to fight the all-powerful perpetrators of mass murder . . .
 
A pair of brutal operators, methodically shadowing their targets with every cutting-edge tool in the arsenal of today’s surveillance state . . .
 
A sequence of quiet heroes—everyday citizens—stepping up, stepping forward, intent on countering the advancing darkness . . .
 
A Vegas mob boss teamed with a homicidal sociopath, circling a beloved boy and his protectors, aiming to secure him as leverage against his fugitive mother . . .
 
And that fugitive mother herself, ex-agent Jane Hawk, closing in on the malevolent architects of ruin she has stalked as they stalk her, prepared to sacrifice herself to finally bring them down.
 
These are the people and circumstances of The Night Window, the thrilling new novel in Dean Koontz’s acclaimed Jane Hawk series. Replete—and then some—with the ingenious twists, the spellbinding action, the resonant themes, the sheer heart that have characterized Jane’s journey from the start, The Night Window follows its extraordinary heroine to her long-sought objective, in a stunning, unforgettable finale.

My Review: Jane Hawk’s been pushed to the limit, her enemies are closing in on her, her friends, even her son. An old ally comes to her aid and another betrays her. She must find a way out to safety for herself and her friend. Meanwhile, the Arcadians have found her son and are preparing to move in. The leader of the Arcadians has his own game going which he plans to use on her. He’s testing it on a Hollywood up-and-coming director/producer. The young man must run for his life as he becomes the hunted.

Another intense novel by Koontz! Say what you will about the formula of his books, but he tells a satisfying tale! I haven’t been disappointed by a book of his yet. This is a scary world and one I personally hope we never encounter.
