    I was lucky enough to read a copy of THE SILENT CORNER, the first book in the Jane Hawk series just before I read this book. Since THE CROOKED STAIRCASE is book three have I only missed THE WHISPERING ROOM. However, I felt reading this book alone worked fine, despite that. I was very g...

    Thank you to Random House/Bantam for sending me an advance copy of this latest installment in the Jane Hawk Series. Dean Koontz is at his best. The words printed in this book seem to lift magically off the pages, creating visual perfection in my mind. The Crooked Staircase leads to...

    Fast, violent, deadly, with intense suspense. I think an ultimate fear is losing control of our own minds, or choices. This book dives into that fear and drags it into that dark place, then it adds rape, torture, sex salvery, and running for your life. It is intense. Jane the main cha...

    Another page-turning thriller in the Jane Hawk series. I love Jane, a former FBI agent who is still the ?most wanted person in America? and as kick-ass as ever. The story starts off with a bang and keeps on rolling like a roller coaster. I was especially captivated by the arsenal a...

    This is the third book in the Jane Hawk series. It is just as fast paced as the first two. Each chapter leaves you on the edge of your seat. Like the first two books, The Crooked Staircase picks up where the previous book left off. There is no hand holding, so I advise you to read the ...

    Jane Hawk and her one-woman war against the Techno Arcadians are back! If anything, this book is even more intense than the first two books. When I finished, I just wanted more. The ending was a cliffhanger so we know there is more to come. Jane's husband took his own life and Jane ...

    *4.5 stars rounded up. Dean Koontz is the master of building the intensity of suspense in his thrillers! There were times in this third edition of the Jane Hawk series that I had to close the cover of my Kindle to get a break from it all! A group of wealthy and powerful people, w...

    I have three things to say about the books in this series, of which this is the third: First, I loved every single minute of reading them all. Second, they're good enough to keep you looking forward to the next one - perhaps even more so because the endings aren't quite endings at all....

    Wow! I pretty much inhaled this 3rd installment in the Jane Hawk novels. I've been a huge fan of Dean Koontz ever since I read Watchers decades ago. One of the things I love most about his books is that no matter how inherently evil his villains are, there is always someone that is...

    I am going to be honest here and admit to a degree of disappointment in this book. It was very long, very wordy (although Koontz often is) and it had far too much going on. Reading it made me feel the author had so much to say that he just scribbled it all down without any editing. ...

    I've been a huge fan of Dean Koontz since I was eight years old. He's incredibly talented and always manages to get me involved with the characters. My favorites by him are Watchers and Lightning, in that order. This Jane Hawk series I think is my favorite series by him. He really drew...

    ???? Book three of the Jane Hawk series and this is my favorite of the three so far! I?d considered walking away from the series after the last book The Whispering Room and now I?m so glad I stayed with it. Jane, America?s most wanted fugitive OR America?s new-age ...

    This was a great installment to the series. While reading The Whispering Room, I started to worry that the series was becoming repetitive, but this one mixed things up a bit. It is still a continuing story, but I am interested in where it is going. There are at least two more installme...

    4.5 stars! Jane Hawk is still on a search to find out the reason why her husband was killed and who did it. His death was set up to believe that he committed suicide, but Jane knows better. She is hiding, for her life depends on it, as she is hunted by some government agents who hav...

    Thanks once more to Bantam Books/Random house for this ARC (sorry I am getting to it a little late!). Also, I can never thank Dustin Crazy little brown owl - moderator of Koontzland - the definitive Koontz Goodreads group - enough for hosting another book giveaway! You want suspense...

    Once again, Koontz is able, with his exquisite prose, to communicate the danger of the situation, the evil of the villain, and the foreshadow the jeopardy lurking in the characters' futures. Jane Hawke redefines Koontz. She is his greatest creation yet. She is strong, capable, brillian...

    "Jane stood in the dark, and the dark stood in her, the latter being the darkness of both her past actions and lethal potential." OK, be honest, did Dean Koontz have a clandestine meeting with George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones) before he wrote The Crooked Staircase? Because he de...

    Cunning, beautiful, deadly. Three books in and I can't get enough of Jane Hawk! With THE CROOKED STAIRCASE, Koontz reminds us just why he's a master of the craft. Don't miss this one! ...

    I received a free ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review. Please, just finish already! The Crooked Staircase is the third novel in Koontz's Jane Hawk series. And, once again, he delivers a well-written thriller. The only problem here is that too much of this novel is ...

    Play Manchurian With Me -Again The good news is that Koontz has put out a third Jane Hawk book which readers like me will hungrily devour from cover to cover without taking breaks for eating or sleeping (well, maybe a few short ones). The bad news is that it's not a trilogy and a fo...

    This is the third book in the Jane Hawk series and while still good was probably my least favorite. There seemed to be multiple stories going on at the same time. At the start of the book we had Jane's story of course but the chapters alternated with the story of twins who are the targ...

    Thanks to Random House and Netgalley for the ARC, which was given in exchange for an honest review. After the abysmal The Whispering Room, I was hesitant to continue reading Dean Koontz?s Jane Hawk series. While I loved the first book, The Silent Corner, I felt its sequel was unab...

    While I have enjoyed Dean Koontz books in the past, I am sorry to say that was not the case for ?The Crooked Staircase.? Mr. Koontz has crafted a good story, and there are plenty of thriller elements to it. I realize the author was trying to generate tension by having the chapt...
