Publisher's Summary

"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. 
People of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have been committing suicide in surprising numbers. When Jane seeks to learn why, she becomes the most-wanted fugitive in America. Her powerful enemies are protecting a secret so important - so terrifying - that they will exterminate anyone in their way.
But all their power and viciousness may not be enough to stop a woman as clever as they are cold-blooded, as relentless as they are ruthless - and who is driven by a righteous rage they can never comprehend. Because it is born of love.

Not Koontz finest work

I struggled to finish this.....and it had a most unsatisfactory ending. Main character was 2 dimensional and no woman/mother would have reacted the way she did. It is hard to explain without spoilers so I won't elaborate. If the “left in mid air“ ending to the book is to leave it open for a second book I won't bother to read it....but my opinion is the sloppy ending is due to this story going nowhere! I recommend you read any other Dean Koontz book than this one. The narrator did a good job.

Audio books in general

I enjoy Dean Koonzt, but would rather read him than listen to someone else reading it. Unfortunately I am I n a situation in which I am losing my sight a n d therefore have little choice in the matter. My One complaint with narration, is the attempt of the narrator to speak the voices of the various characters within the story, it is so amateurish.

Terrible Narrative

Nothing personal towards the Narrator however I have to say, the narration ruined the story. Her voice was so monotone that I could only bear to listen at 1.5x the speed.
I have just finished listening to the Outlander series who’s narrator is excellent so perhaps that made the listening of this narrative that much worse but from now on I will remember to listen BEFORE I buy.
