Dallas, 22. November 1963 – 12:30 Uhr: Lee Harvey Oswald späht durch das Zielfernrohr seines Gewehrs. John F. Kennedys Kopf erscheint kaum einen Meter entfernt. Oswald weiß, dass er kaum Zeit haben wird. Zwei Schüsse wird er sicher abgeben können – drei, wenn er wirklich schnell ist. Sein Ziel klar vor Augen, atmet er aus und drückt den Abzug. Der erste Schuss trifft den Präsidenten im Nacken. Kennedy sackt leicht zusammen, sein Rückenkorsett, das er wegen seiner Kriegsverletzung dauernd tragen muss, hält ihn aber aufrecht. Beunruhigt wendet Jackie sich ihrem Mann zu. Sie greift nach seiner Schulter und schaut ihm ins Gesicht, um zu sehen, was los ist. Kaum fünf Sekunden sind seit dem ersten Schuss vergangen, da schlägt die zweite Kugel in Kennedys Hinterkopf ein und reißt eine klaffende Wunde. Reflexartig fährt seine Hand hoch zur Stirn, doch ein großer Teil der Schädeldecke ist weggeschleudert worden.

THE FIRST NOVEL IN THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING JANE HAWK SERIES Meet Jane Hawk—a remarkable new heroine certain to become an icon of suspense. “This gripping thriller grabs readers from the first few pages and sweeps them along to the rousing finale.”—Booklist “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. Don’t miss any of Dean Koontz’s gripping Jane Hawk thrillers: THE SILENT CORNER • THE WHISPERING ROOM • THE CROOKED STAIRCASE • THE FORBIDDEN DOOR • THE NIGHT WINDOW (Coming Soon!) Praise for The Silent Corner “Gripping . . . The paranoia and mystery increase as the story unfolds. . . . Koontz has created [a] wonderful character in Jane Hawk. . . . Koontz rocks it again.”—Associated Press “In this era of stingy text-message prose, Mr. Koontz is practically Shakespeare. . . . The Silent Corner brims with both action and emotion.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “The Silent Corner is vintage Dean Koontz: paranoia-fueled suspense . . . sleek and highly realized action, developed characters, and more twists and turns than any two ordinary novels combined. . . . As relevant to current events as it is audacious . . . amongst Dean Koontz’s finest contemporary work.”—Mystery Scene “A proven specialist in action scenes, Koontz pulls off some doozies here. . . . The book is full of neat touches. . . . And the prose, as always in a Koontz novel, is first-rate. Perhaps Koontz’s leanest, meanest thriller, this initial entry in a new series introduces a smart, appealing heroine who can outthink as well as outshoot the baddest of bad dudes.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Doch bevor die Bergungskräfte mehr herausfinden, werden sie von einer Lawine überrascht und in die Tiefe gerissen. Die Leiche verschwindet ebenfalls spurlos unter den Schneemassen. Die FBI-Agentin Ren Bryce übernimmt die Ermittlungen. Sie findet heraus, dass es sich bei der toten Frau um eine Kollegin handelt. Kurz bevor sie starb, hatte sie offenbar in einem Fall einen entscheidenden Hinweis entdeckt. Musste sie deshalb sterben? Und wer würde ausgerechnet einen Gletscher als Ort für einen Mord auswählen? Ren findet keine Antworten auf diese Fragen. Bis das völlig Unwahrscheinliche geschieht: Nach langer Zeit gibt der Schnee doch noch die Frauenleiche frei. Und mit ihr kommt ein düsteres Geheimnis ans Licht der Öffentlichkeit, das noch viel schrecklicher ist als ihr eigentlich Mord -
