NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • When this relentless rogue FBI agent comes knocking, her adversaries will have to answer—with their lives—in this 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
Wow, caught fire
Fourth book in this series and my first read. The start was slow and a little tedious. Started picking up about a third into the book and WOW, the interest caught fire. The story is almost a “big brother” scenario , with the revolutionary truly bad guys seeming to always get the upper hand. By the end of this book, all is not well with the revolution and the main character, Jane Hawk is on the move, trying to stay alive, at a high price. A good read.
Overly Descriptive and Flawed
Characters invested in and spent many pages delving into disappear without ceremony or meaning. Dean Koontz, known for his over-use of similes and grandiose descriptions seems to have doubled down on this one. However, in the end, Jane Hawk and the unraveling conspiracy keep the reader turning the pages.
Don’t waste your money. This is absolute rubbish. The author uses over a 1000 pages to tell a 250 page story.
