Can't wait for the next book. What a wild ride which only the greats like Koontz can produce. The characters are genuine and the loss of some I did not see coming. The plot is believable and terrifying in its reality. As always I love his writing style and was thrilled to see over 600 pages per book! Thank you once again Mr. KOONTZ FOR AN EXCELLENT READ.

Compels you to keep reading . However, sometimes there was too much descriptive detail concerning physical surroundings. I wanted to get on with the story!

One can only hope, the corrupt leaders of our beloved country don't get any ideas from this genuinely ingenious plot; as they seem to be using "Mein Kampf and 1984" ideas concurrently. Its hard to believe Koontz writing and plots continue to weave webs that capture and mesmerize after all these years. Astounding me when I think he's reached the pinnacle in his genre. His plot is so terrifyingly believable in todays world. His hero characters have such deep heart understanding- as well as resources of soul and brilliance of courage. And he always includes bright, intelligent dog characters to love and appreciate. I hate to use this cliche - but, I was unable to put the book down. Now can't wait for the next episode.

This story ran out of steam long ago. Let’s get the problem solved and get on with a reasonably satisfying ending. Not that it’s possible, since most of the people we care about have bee gratuitously murdered. I’ve read them all, curious and intrigued, then weary, thinking it was long past time to end this thing. I’m not picking up the next one.

Typical Dean Koontz at the top of his writing game! This story will keep you on your toes and turning pages until the early morning light. Can't recommend this highly enough. Can't wait until the next book! Absolutely the best!

Should be 5 stars but drags a bit in places.

Koontz once again has taken our heroine and embroiled her in many disadvantageous adventures. You want to keep reading and finding out what happens next! Can't wait for the next installment!

Not as awesome as the 1st 2 in the series but I'm only on page 125 ....this one has a little over 600 pages so I'm hoping it's worth it. I will update my review when I'm finished if something changes.

I have been a follower of Dean Koontz for years. The Jean Hawk series is quite good and I am enjoying every bit of it. I have, however, noticed that there are sections that seem acerbic to the point of being a rant. I don't recall that in past books. I have always felt that there is a place for ranting and raving and a place that it doesn't belong. Otherwise, the books are good and I am waiting for the last one to come out. The dust covers with photos, supposedly, of Lady Jane Hawk are gorgeous. They have probably put book nerds, including me, into a positive sweat of passion. Thank you, Mr. Koontz, for the cracking good yarn. Keep up the good work. Please and thank you. Best regards, Norman Baron, MD, FACS

I have been stockpiling Dean Koontz's print books for years now but haven't read any. I picked an advanced copies of this and didn't want to put it down. Took me almost a week to read due to a personal illness that is almost gone. One a normal week I would have read it in a day or two. This book pulled you in and didn't let go. You want Jane, Travis, and everyone you time to love to be ok. Is that even possible. You want the bad guys to be tortured slowly before they die. Do you get that? Maybe on some level. I loved this book. Pick it up! Read it! Love it. You won't regret it (less)

What I like the most about this book is that it is a true story. After all, they couldn't put it in books if it wasn't true. It's the law. The Federal law.

Jane Hawk is back again and still out for revenge for the death of her husband. As she climbs higher up the totem to stop them from creating their version of utopia, she begins to wonder how much further she must go. Simon Yegg is a rich and powerful man. He will do anything for his brother, and doesn't ask questions. When Jane appears, he tries to outsmart her and sets up a signal to let his brother Booth Hendrickson know that Jane is with him. But when Jane encounters Booth, could she have met her match. Jessie and Gavin Washington have sworn to keep Travis Hawk safe. They feel that this is their part in this war. There are many changes in this book that had me thinking it was insanely riveting. There's nonstop excitement that will leave you at the edge of your seat, anticipating the arrival of book four.

Once again Mr. Koontz has kept me up turning pages until the sun comes up, but what better way to loss sleep then with a wonderful book you never want to end. This one the third in his Jane Hawk series is full of spine tingling thrills and unexpected turns in plots to which Jane Hawk, her son Travis, family and friends fall into while Jane tries to find the head of the Arcadian Resistance which is responsible for her beloved husbands suicide and who have threatened to kill her son or do worse. The Jane Hawk books just keep getting better, all the characters are super engaging, likable and lovable and the villains are equally deplorable... you so want to see Jane pour out Justice in the worse way! Can hardly wait for book 4 in the series, after this book I will never try to second guess what Mr. Koontz has in store for his characters.

I love books by Dean Koontz. I have not been disappointed yet by this series. Though I had no idea it was a series until I started I love it and can’t wait for the next book. He’s right up there with Stephen King. This series will hook you if you like this type. If not then you may not feel the same as I do. I just know it’s one I could not put down. Thank you #NetGalley #Dean Koontz #The Crooked Staircase and #Random House

I am truly enjoying this series. For some reason Ithought it was going to be a trilogy and am so glad it's more than that. Like others who have reviewed, I am having a difficult time putting the story aside and getting on with the day and/or going to bed at night. Also I like a good story that has some length to it, as in 600+ pages. Well done Mr. Koontz.
