"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 Hawk, surrounded by questions destined to go unanswered unless she does what all the grief, fear, confusion, and fury inside her demand: Find the truth, no matter what. There is no one else to speak for him--or the others who have followed him into death at their own hands. Though people of talent and accomplishment, people admired and seemingly 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 her. 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.

Children were the world as it was meant to be, and they were the light within the world. But for every light, there seemed to be someone bent on extinguishing it.

...she turns on him a blue-eyed stare as bright with the memory of suffering as with the fire of vengeance.

She had long thought of herself as a rock. But rocks, too, could fracture. Under enough pressure, even granite crumbled, decomposed.

AL_CHRISTINE Jul 01, 2017

Even in the darkest darkness, hope was a lifeline, though sometimes as thin as a thread.

AL_CHRISTINE Jul 01, 2017

...in this dangerous time when shadows cast shadows of their own, when darkness often passed for light, the just and the unjust wore the same face.

Hot damn! Koontz is back in form. This is the very same author who gave us Watchers, Strangers and Twilight Eyes - - not that other one who went all Valley Girl on his fans with his previous two books.
[Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with Valley Girls, just that I don't read them.]
