Book Review: The Whispering Room

Title: The Whispering Room (Jane Hawk #2)
Author: Dean Koontz

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 these 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.

My Review

This is the continuing story of Jane Hawk’s search for the people that are causing the rise of suicide in people. In The Whispering Room, she find a small town that is like a hive where one mine can send to all the others. Jane Hawk teams up with a sheriff to escape the town with the town’s children under 16 & then shoots off on her own once again. She finds the person that she thought was the one that was in control of the whole operation just to have him kill himself before giving her any more leads. So Jane Hawk is once more thrown into the unknown and hopefully we will find out more in The Crooked Staircase. I have seen that so far there is four (4) books in the series and I honestly can not wait to see how high up this issue is.

This is a gripping, keep you on the edge of your seat thriller worthy of Dean Koontz. I, honestly, can not wait till I get to read the next two (2) books. I highly recommend you getting the first book The Silent Corner and start the series.
