The last installment of the Jane Hawk thriller/suspense series

The Night Window: A Jane Hawk Novel

By: Dean Koontz

Rating: 5 of 5

I started this series with book 2 (of 4) and was enthralled. I read book 3 and then, recently, went back to read book 1 in preparation for this book. Book 4, “The Night Window”, is the final book in the Jane Hawk series. It is a psychological thriller filled with suspense about a near-future science fiction premise.

The book is set in our time and present a frightening look at what can happen when a group of individuals decides it can and will shape the future of the human race. They have decided that they know best. They can decide who wins and who loses and, more to the point, who can live.

Jane Hawk is ex-FBI. She has been on the run since shortly after her husband’s suicide in Book 1. She is trying to keep her young son safe and, at the same time, expose the frightening web of deceit and evil doings of those responsible for her husband’s death.

While I started with the second book, I highly recommend starting with the first one. That way, the events unfold as they do for Jane and those around her who either for her or against her.

I expected an explosive conclusion and I was not disappointed. The way the author set the end in motion from the beginning becomes evident once you finish. While the end is surprising in many ways, I see where each element began in the prior books.

I am more than happy with the ending and am only sorry to see the end of the series knowing I will not be reading about Jane Hawk et al in the future. However, I will be reading more books by this author.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
