Review: The Crooked Staircase by Dean Koontz

May 10, 2018

Jane Hawk knows she may be living on borrowed time. But as long as she's breathing, she'll never cease her one-woman war against the terrifying conspiracy that threatens the freedom--and free will--of millions. Battling the strange epidemic of murder-suicides that claimed Jane's husband, and is escalating across the country, has made the rogue FBI agent a wanted fugitive, relentlessly hunted not only by the government but by the secret cabal behind the plot. Deploying every resource their malign nexus of power and technology commands, Jane's enemies are determined to see her dead . . . or make her wish she was.


Jane's ruthless pursuers can't stop her from drawing a bead on her prey: a cunning man with connections in high places, a twisted soul of unspeakable depths with an army of professional killers on call. Propelled by her righteous fury and implacable insistence on justice, Jane will make her way from southern California to the snow-swept slopes of Lake Tahoe to confront head-on the lethal forces arrayed against her. But nothing can prepare her for the chilling truth that awaits when she descends the crooked staircase to the dark and dreadful place where her long nightmare was born.

*** 3 Star Review ***


And the plot thickens...


I am all for series. I love them... So long as they are told well and keep me on my toes. This series could have been ended in the last book. I thought for sure since it would end in this one after more plot was added in book two. Again, I was wrong.


This book and series is just too drawn out. The constant adding to the plot has become tiresome for me. I can say I won't be reading the next book when it releases in October. The twists and turns in this book were just more filler to me.


As a book in itself, it isn't a bad book. However, with it being the third book in a series, I am honestly over it. I know it seems like I am just bashing it, but I am not intending to. There are series that work well over many books, this definitely isn't one of them.


If you are caught up in this series, I can't say if you will like it or not. If you were riveted after book two, eagerly awaiting this book, you will most likely love this book and be waiting for the next one in the fall. If you weren't impressed with the last book, you might just feel the same as me with this one.
