My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“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 aftermath, his widow, Jane Hawk, does what all her grief, fear, and fury demand: find the truth, no matter what. She discovers other people who had supposedly committed suicide as she races around America, flying well under the grip, as she races around America trying to find those behind her husband’s unexpected death. The plot is not as pacy as normal Koontz books, which disappointed me somewhat. The lengths Jane goes to stay hidden are interesting but is she really as undetected as she hopes?
I had mixed reactions to the characters in this book, sometimes empathising with them and sometimes not. An interesting read, if not satisfying, read. Be warned, this book is part of a trilogy and so does not have all the plot threads resolved.
