About the Book
When this relentless rogue FBI agent comes knocking, her adversaries will have to answer—with their lives—in the latest thrilling Jane Hawk novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Corner.
“Jane Hawk is arguably the best character Koontz has created.”—Associated Press
“We’re rewriting the play, and the play is this country, the world, the future. We break Jane’s heart, we’ll also break her will.”
She was one of the FBI’s top agents until she became the nation’s most-wanted fugitive. Now Jane Hawk may be all that stands between a free nation and its enslavement by a powerful secret society’s terrifying mind-control technology. She couldn’t save her husband, or the others whose lives have been destroyed, but equipped with superior tactical and survival skills—and the fury born of a broken heart and a hunger for justice—Jane has struck major blows against the insidious cabal.
But Jane’s enemies are about to hit back hard. If their best operatives can’t outrun her, they mean to bring her running to them, using her five-year-old son as bait. Jane knows there’s no underestimating their capabilities, but she must battle her way back across the country to the remote shelter where her boy is safely hidden . . . for now. As she moves resolutely forward, new threats begin to emerge: a growing number of brain-altered victims driven hopelessly, violently insane. With the madness spreading like a virus, the war between Jane and her enemies will become a fight for all their lives—against the lethal terror unleashed from behind the forbidden door.

It’s bad enough when there is a civil war secretly brewing inside of the government. It’s worse when you try to be the good guy and expose the truth. Now their coming for her family, especially her son. With the Arcadias searching for her son, will they kill him just to break her? Can she find him and make it out safely? Who else must die, before these people give up?
“The Forbidden door,” is really not a book I would recommend for everybody it’s kind of a story that’s been drawn out, seeing there’s only really one main goal in the story. There’s not even a plot where they almost find Travis or Jane. Also the chapters are really short.
The good things about,”The forbidden door” though is it is a great overall story. Once you get past the drawn out story line, it is a great story. I started to feel that this addition to the series, was not really about Jane and Travis, it was about this brain control technology that the “Revolution,” is using to enslave people.
