NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 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.

Don’t miss any of Dean Koontz’s gripping Jane Hawk thrillers:

Praise for The Whispering Room

“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

    Read The Silent Corner all night, finished with The Whispering Room the next night. These books are so well written, a horrifying plot, great characters, heart pounding action and suspense, that I could not stop reading them. Now I am left with an unbearable thirst until the next book is released. Jane Hawk rules!!!

    I have a friend,RIP Hardy,to thank for introducing me to this amazing writer,some 27 years ago. I’ve passed on Dean Koontz to all my reading friends. This new series you started Mr Knootz had me from page one. Thank you for introducing Jane Hawke to me and my husband. May she live on to combat the evils of our world.
  • Muddled and slow paced

    This author has always prided himself on his large vocabulary and in his earlier works he wove it in well without slowing down the pace of the action… With the crafting of this story he slows the pace of the action by trying to add as much unrealistic and unneeded dialogue as possible. He’s always used brilliant children in his novels but somehow these kids have a vocabulary at the PhD level. Which makes those of us with only a masters wonder what in the hell he’s talking about. This is one of his best storylines he had in years and yet it is ruined by having to wade through his quicksand of vocabulary. I’ve tried to restart it three times to get into it, but each time I get bored by the slow pace of action and uninteresting dialogue. I miss the old days :(

    A good plot line is suffocated by the author’s rambling bloated pompous descriptive phrasing. The ending is anticlimactic and boring. Not one of author ‘s best works.
  • Quite a page turner!

    This one had me read faster than I have in years. Plenty of action to keep you in anticipation of the next page. A few surprises and one or two things that didn’t quite add up but a good and exciting read! But I still miss Odd Thomas...
  • The whispering Room

    By Natasha (author)
    Too much unnecessary detail & description makes it tedious waiting for the action & progression of the plot. Am tired of looking up words that seem to make the author feel superior to his readers. The author's early novels were far more enjoyable and his wonderful characters a high point in the stories.
