The Forbidden Door by Dean KoontzDean Koontz rarely disappoints and such is the case in this fourth installment of the Jane Hawk series. In a conspiracy theorists delight, a secret organization has infiltrated all levels of government and is intent on instilling their radical philosophies to control society. Jane Hawk is standing in their way with the proof that could bring them down, but before she can, Jane first needs to find and save her young son before her enemies do. From the first few pages this book is a headlong rush of action and suspense as Jane marshals all of her wits and resources to find her son before they do. Be prepared to lose some sleep on this one, as once the action starts, it never stops, making this book very difficult to put down. This is a great action thriller and will leave you yearning for the next installment of Jane's quest to bring justice to those who would do us wrong.

The Forbidden Door by Dean Koontz ($28.00*, Bantam), recommended by Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC.
