THE NIGHT WIN­DOW

BY DEAN KOONTZ (HARPERCOLL­INS) R299*

DRUM - - CHILL OUT - – AN­DRE J BRINK

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.
