The Whispering Room (Jane Hawk #2) Read Online Free - 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.
Acclaim for Dean Koontz's The Silent Corner
"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)
"Long an A-list bestseller, Koontz has always delivered the goods, whether he's tackling science fiction, horror, or thrillers. . . . That varied bibliography now adds a new series and an exciting new heroine. Expect the usual clamor for copies among the faithful, who are certain to embrace Jane Hawk immediately and eagerly await the next installment."--Booklist
"Fantastically written (as always by Mr. Koontz) . . . You are riveted on page one. . . . The man who gave us unbelievable characters in the past (Miss you, Odd Thomas) has now given us a brand new one that will, hands-down, become another fan favorite. 5 stars!"--Suspense Magazine

Picked up right where book one left off. A follow-up book two from the Jane Hawk series. And Jane is still on the run. I highly recommend starting at the beginning with ‘The Silent Corner’ in order to become fully enmeshed.

“You're dead already...They'll know about you in the whispering room.”
A narrative which moves like a runaway train, a terrific premise which is more plausible than we’d like to admit, a resourceful protagonist we like and care about, and Dean Koontz’s signature trademarks of goodness and hope in...

Thanks to Bantam Books/Random house for this ARC. Also thanks to Dustin Crazy little brown owl - moderator of Koontzland - the definitive Koontz Goodreads group - for hosting the giveaway. I say ARC even though it came out two weeks ago, but I got it just a couple of days before the release so I...

Time for a confession: I’ve never read a single book by Dean Koontz. I started The Face once, long ago, and never finished.
Maybe it’s time to revisit that book. The Whispering Room is a sequel to Koontz’s first Jane Hawk book: The Silent Corner. I should have picked it up while it was on sale a c...

This is turning into such a great series. I gave book one 4 stars but this one gets a full 5.
The most noticeable aspect of The Whispering Room is the suspense. I sat on the edge of my seat, holding my breath and forcing myself not to peep at the end to see who survived. Jane Hawk is one of those...

For good reason there a genre called thrillers, if you looked the term up in the dictionary no doubt a picture of the cover for The Whispering Room (TWR) would be one of those books featured prominently.
Rogue FBI Special Agent Jane Hawk is back in her continuing crusade against the cabal that is...

When I finished The Silent Corner, the first book in this series featuring FBI agent Jane Hawk, I loved it so much that in my review I urged the author to hurry up and finish the next one sooner than scheduled. He must have heard me, since he beat that original date by a couple of months. And oh...
