Summary:

A dazzling new series debuts with a remarkable heroine certain to become a new icon of suspense, propelled by the singular narrative genius of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz. "I very much need to be dead." These are the chilling words left behind by a man who had everything to live for-but took his own life. In the void that remains stands his widow, Jane, surrounded by questions destined to go unanswered . . . unless she does what all the grief, fear, confusion, and fury inside of her demand: find the truth, no matter what. There is no one else to speak for Jane's husband-or the others who have followed him into death at their own hands. Although people of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have recently been committing suicide in surprising numbers, no one else is willing to give up everything, just to seek, to find, to know. No one except Jane. But ahead lies only risk. Because those arrayed against her are legion . . . and dangerously devoted to protecting something profoundly important-or terrifying-enough to exterminate any and all in their way. Too many have already died, and those responsible will learn that all their malevolent power may not be enough to stop a woman as clever as they are cold-blooded, as relentless as they are ruthless-and who is driven by a righteous rage they can never comprehend. Because it is born of love.

    The slowest "thriller". Struggled to finish. I expect more from Koontz and he usually delivers.

    The book was as I expected from Mr. Koontz. It kept me interested from start to finish. He always has a way to keep the reader involved and rooting for the good guy. Can’t wait for the next installment.

    Started off a little slow, and narration at first bugged me. It gradually picked up speed and the narrator didn't seem so stiff as she did at first. I am looking forward to listening to the next one.

    I really enjoyed this one. It twisted my gut and my mind. Great storytelling, good transitions. Worth the listen, I was pretty upset until I realized there were more books!

    Slow to start but got very exciting! Great book that I wanted to keep listening too. However, there is a long pause between chapters.

    Having read more than half of DK’s impressive catalog—I think this is his best! Looking forward to #2

    Engaging story and likable characters. Like all Koontz books, a bit disturbing, but this one does hit pretty close to home as events closely resemble reality. I think I prefer the more supernatural bent he had in years past, as this is a bit too real!

    Great story line.

  • Simon E

    Good story I wasn't that keen on the narrators caricatures voices
