The Whispering Room (Signed Book) (Jane Hawk Series #2)

Jane Hawk—fiction’s most relentless, resourceful, stunning new heroine—continues her battle against a murderous conspiracy in the riveting sequel to The Silent Corner.

“No time to delay. Do what you were born to do. Fame will be yours when you do this.”

These are the words that ring in the mind of mild-mannered, beloved schoolteacher Cora Gundersun—just before she takes her own life, and many others’, in a shocking act of carnage. When the disturbing contents of her secret journal are discovered, it seems certain that she must have been insane. But Jane Hawk knows better.

In the wake of her husband’s inexplicable suicide—and the equally mysterious deaths of scores of other exemplary individuals—Jane picks up the trail of a secret cabal of powerful players who think themselves above the law and beyond punishment. But the ruthless people bent on hijacking America’s future for their own monstrous ends never banked on a highly trained FBI agent willing to go rogue—and become the nation’s most wanted fugitive—in order to derail their insidious plans to gain absolute power with a terrifying technological breakthrough.

Driven by love for her lost husband and by fear for the five-year-old son she has sent into hiding, Jane Hawk has become an unstoppable predator. Those she is hunting will have nowhere to run when her shadow falls across them.

Acclaim for Dean Koontz’s previous Jane Hawk novel, 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)
 
“The latest page-turner by Dean Koontz introduces readers to Jane Hawk. . . . An inspired choice for a protagonist . . . action, zippy dialogue and a winning character at the center of the book, part of a new series by Koontz.”—Minneapolis Star-Tribune
 
“Long an A-list bestseller, Koontz has always delivered the goods. . . . [His] varied bibliography now adds a new series and an exciting new heroine.”Booklist
 
“Fantastically written (as always by Mr. Koontz) . . . You are riveted on page one. . . . 5 stars!”Suspense Magazine

In The Silent Corner, which soared onto the New York Times best sellers list after its late June release, FBI agent Jane Hawk seeks to discover why her accomplished husband and a surprisingly large number of others have unaccountably committed suicide. Now she knows it's because a few power mongers are out to rule the world, and she's going to get them. The title references those who are off the grid yet able to sneak around on the Internet.

I enjoyed reading The Whispering Room. Dean Koontz did a great job of drawing me into the story and not letting me come up for breath until the end. I was kept on edge the entire book, not know what will happen next. The plot was fantastic and the characters were 3D. This book is not one that you can read alone, though. You do need to read The Silent Corner to keep up with the lightning fast events in The Whispering Room.

This book was almost impossible to put down. Quite honestly, it gave me the wiggins. Without giving too much away, it's centered around subjects like nanotechnology, brain implants, and corruption and mind control at the highest levels. Is such a thing even possible? It's certainly the kind of thing that keeps conspiracy theorists up at night, and just the slightest idea that it could happen is terrifying. Our heroine has everything to gain and nothing to lose by going up against this dark entity, which makes her journey so exciting. The writing is solid and the characters are multi-faceted, something I've come to expect from Koontz's previous works. If you enjoy action and a good thriller, you will definitely like The Whispering Room.
