Publisher's Summary

An audio original novella featuring bestselling author Dean Koontz’s compelling new heroine, Jane Hawk. From the case files of the former FBI agent before she became the nation’s most wanted fugitive - The Bone Farm details a desperate man-hunt for a serial killer before he murders again.

Katherine Haskell, a young college co-ed is on her way back to school, but she never makes it there. Instead, she becomes the latest prey of the rapist and murderer dubbed by the tabloids the “Mother Hater.” He is a twisted soul who kidnaps young girls for pleasure then discards them.

Katherine is missing, but she’s not yet dead. FBI agents Jane Hawk and her partner Gary Burkett must descend into the hell of this killer’s mind to solve the case before it is too late. The question is - will they both get out alive?

First Timer

This was the first audio book I've ever heard and I am now hooked! The story was great and the way it was read I really felt as if I was in the story with the characters. I am a teacher and it is a great way to decompress after working. I will also be recommending this app to everyone I know, thank you!!!

conflicted

the Male narrator was okay. the female narrator was terrible. the story was riveting and that's the only thing that kept me listening. that coupled with knowing that it was a short listen because if it was a longer book it would have been difficult listening to her jerky sing song awkward narration. overall it was a great story though and glad I did experience the story because this is one of my favorite authors.

Gritty/Realistic

Sounds like it could have been a real case file or a report from a case that was never made public. You feel for all the characters because they put you in their shoes. Well done all around!

I love Koontz books...

I haven't read a book that I didn't like from Koontz. This is a short story but good, wish it had been longer.

I enjoyed it

Unlike lot of reviews I read earlier about bad narration / performance actually I liked it. Can say I was hooked by the story are there was hardly and suspense or thrill but given the length I went on from start to finish. The sad part was almost in the 4th chapter itself (20 mins) the story was almost clear..!

Short and concise.

As an imediate fan of Jane Hawk, I liked this story. I especially enjoyed the action sequences, for which Dean Koontz has always shined. However, the explanitory antagonists' sequences read more like an author's overall character sketch, not to be published, but to be used to further a writer's knowledge of his/her own character(s). Still, it's still worth reading. Koontz rarely--if ever--disappoints.

So dark and chilling

There's a certain lingering sense of despair to the Jane Hawk series that I have not sensed in his other novels. It was there a bit in ASHLEY BELL but has come with a stronger force in the Jane Hawk series. I am curious why that is, as I had depended on Mr. Koontz's hope-infused works.
I am back to add that I believe it is so as some attempt to emulate the Dark Night of the Soul as described by St. John of the Cross. The Jane Hawk series draws religiously and philosophically from The Dialogue of St Catherine of Siena and the works of T.S. Eliot.
