THE NIGHT WINDOW
BY DEAN KOONTZ (HARPERCOLLINS) R299*
This is the final confrontation between good and evil, the climax to Jane Hawk’s one-woman crusade to rid the world of the ruthless cabal known as the Techno Arcadians.
It is the fifth book in the series, which started off in 2017 with the Silent Corner, and even if you haven’t read any of the previous books, you can still enjoy this thriller because Dean Koontz revisits all that has happened before without annoying fans by being unnecessarily repetitive.
The baddies who want to control the world with an army of people who have been “adjusted” through the administration of an injection which makes them subservient.
Jane, a former FBI agent, started her war against the Arcadians after her husband was injected then ordered to commit suicide. If I have to criticise the author, it’s that he’s tried to fit too many storylines into this novel. And Jane is almost too good to be true – pretty, highly intelligent, an accomplished piano player and as moral as can be. That said, The Night Window is a gripping thriller that makes the reader want to turn the pages as quickly as possible.
