Passion. Murder. Bloodlust.

Among these nefarious stories, siblings strengthen their bond by plotting against their aggressor; an animal lover seeks revenge on devotees of the exotic skins trade; and a psychiatrist gets what's coming to him when he abuses the trust of a jaded client.

1. Heart's Blood
2. Beloved Brother
3. My Chance Encounter

Follow THE WILDE TWINS in a twisted tale of love and loyalty. . .

A psychological thriller about a brother sister serial killing team--and their slow descent into amoral mayhem.

Book 1 PLAYMATES:

As
kids, Tania and Trevor's unsupervised play time offers a lifeline to
sanity amidst the chaos of family dysfunction. When danger threatens
Tania, Trevor isn't willing to stand by and watch his sister get hurt.
The instinct for survival is only rivaled by the killer instincts the
Wilde siblings encourage in each other. Instincts that turn into a
deadly game igniting their first taste for blood.

Book 2 BEDMATES:

As
teenagers, the siblings pursue random hookup romances in an effort to
distract themselves from two things: their propensity for murder, and
the burgeoning sexual tension between them. What begins as harmless
flirtation soon turns into jealousy and ruthless competition in a wild
game of sibling rivalry, as Tania and Trevor seek to prove their undying
love and loyalty to each other.

Book 3 SOULMATES:

As
young adults, Tania and Trevor attempt a fresh start in terms of paying
their debts to society. When the siblings both find themselves in
unfulfilling marriages, they become increasingly drawn to each other for
comfort and solace. The profound evil from their past is back to haunt
them with a chilling reminder: You can get away with this, again...

Can
Tania and Trevor trust each other with fighting their inner demons, or
will they embrace their dark side to the bittersweet end?

chilling portrayal of two young siblings from a broken home who embark

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Jane Hawk’s one-woman war comes to an explosive climax as the rogue FBI agent gambles everything against a terrifying conspiracy, for vengeance, for justice, and for humanity’s freedom—from the author of The Silent Corner.
 
“Jane Hawk is arguably the best character Koontz has created. . . . Simply put, wow.”—Associated Press
 
A visionary young filmmaker hunted for sport across a vast Colorado ranch by the celebrated billionaire at the heart of a monstrous cabal . . .
 
A brilliant computer hacker slipping through top-secret databases a whisper ahead of security trackers, gathering the facts to fight the all-powerful perpetrators of mass murder . . .
 
A pair of brutal operators, methodically shadowing their targets with every cutting-edge tool in the arsenal of today’s surveillance state . . .
 
A sequence of quiet heroes—everyday citizens—stepping up, stepping forward, intent on countering the advancing darkness . . .
 
A Vegas mob boss teamed with a homicidal sociopath, circling a beloved boy and his protectors, aiming to secure him as leverage against his fugitive mother . . .
 
And that fugitive mother herself, ex-agent Jane Hawk, closing in on the malevolent architects of ruin she has stalked as they stalk her, prepared to sacrifice herself to finally bring them down.
 
These are the people and circumstances of The Night Window, the thrilling new novel in Dean Koontz’s acclaimed Jane Hawk series. Replete—and then some—with the ingenious twists, the spellbinding action, the resonant themes, the sheer heart that have characterized Jane’s journey from the start, The Night Window follows its extraordinary heroine to her long-sought objective, in a stunning, unforgettable finale. 
 
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
 
“The spectacular finale to Jane’s story . . . will hit series fans with all the impact of a carefully calibrated hammer blow.”—Booklist (starred review)
 
“The best installment in the series since the first . . . [Koontz] revs it up with entertaining encounters and offbeat humor.”—Kirkus Reviews
