“Koontz has never exactly shied away from complex characters or situations. And this situation gets very complex indeed, as Jane pursues the people behind the conspiracy with the kind of single-minded relentlessness that makes the book absolutely spellbinding. As good as The Silent Corner was, this one’s even better. . . . Koontz is on another roll with a new series that boasts a juicy premise and a compelling star. . . . Pure gold.”—Booklist (starred review)
“A deeply layered, satisfying thriller that is character-driven and nearly impossible to put down . . . grounded in many real-world, current issues . . . [The Whispering Room] never loses sight of the classic political/sci-fi/thriller elements that make it so much fun to read.”—Bookreporter
“Jane Hawk, the compelling heroine of The Silent Corner, returns in another terrifying Dean Koontz conspiracy thriller, The Whispering Room. . . . The character of Jane Hawk is arguably the best character Koontz has created. Knowledge of The Silent Corner helps put some of the narrative in perspective, but it’s not necessary to fall under the author’s spell. It’s clear that another story featuring her quest for ultimate justice is on the horizon, and hopefully there will be even more after that. Simply put, wow.”—Associated Press
“From exciting to overdrive, there’s something dangerous around every corner that will have readers loving the thrills and chills. . . . Hawk is one of those rare characters that quickly became a favorite with readers and, thankfully, will continue for a long time to come.”—Suspense Magazine
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)

I was worried about Jane in the first part of the book -she seemed to be growing cold and distant from her morals but she was just doing what was necessary. The softer part of Jane emerges at times and her determination never waivers. This book has all the things I love about a Koontz story. The thrill, the always present good vs evil, the existential angst as a thread underneath. He brings in humor, love, strength and the nobility of people. We do not hear enough of these things in life so for me these are always welcome. Characters that she meets along the way will stay memorable. And the ending is a kicker! And yet not the end...I am so eager for the next Jane Hawk book.
As always, Koontz takes care with what seems every word and every idea. He has once again shown himself for the master storyteller that he is. This time with a bit of Elli Weisel philosophy added. What a wonderful way to respect his fans.
Thank you, NetGalley for my early chance
In the continuation of Jane Hawk’s pursuit of whomever is responsible for her husband’s suicide, Koontz’s ability as a wordsmith shines. The plot, as in most of his novels, is simple, and it is his command of prose that keeps the pages turning.
While there are parts that are predictable, there were enough twists to keep me interested and guessing, especially in the end, which I will not reveal.
When I read the first book in the series, I thought one more would wrap up the story. I was wrong, Koontz managed to stretch it to a third, which I look forward to reading.
This one gets four stars.
What struck me most about this book was how horrifyingly real the concepts of everything horrible that happened to the victims were. These things could actually happen - today - to any of us. This made The Whispering Room more frightening than any horror novel I've ever read. (I'm not going to state what the concepts were - no spoilers here - you MUST read this series and this book!)
The Hawk series is arguably Koontz's best work. Each page of The Whispering Room is filled with action, tension, terror, thrills. This is an excellent book.
