Reviews The Whispering Room (Jane Hawk #2)

  • Kaceey
    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.Money, power and sex! The triple threat of human nature that combined, have major potential for evil to bloom. A sinister group are using nanotechnology to take over and control unsuspecting innocent people through brain im...

    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 trying to control the world through implanted nanotechnology. Jane has acquired proof but since she is #1 on the FBI's most wanted list and since the NS...

    The Whispering Room is book #2 in the Jane Hawk series. The story follows on from #1 The Silent Corner, but it is not necessary to have read book #1 in order to understand the gist of the storyline. In some ways I was disappointed with how the storyline developed. Jane Hawk seems to have spent most of the book chasing around, interrogating people in order to extract information from them. The book was boring at times and not as enjoyable as The S...

    I received a free electronic copy of The Whispering Room (Jane Hawk, #2) by Dean Koontz from NetGalley for my honest review.First I have to say I have always been a big fan of Dean Koontz. This was a great thriller filled with conspiracy and mind control. Jane Hawk's husband committed suicide and Jane is trying to avenge her husband's death by proving it wasn't a suicide. Jane then becomes one of the most wanted people in the US because of what s...

    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 boy, am I glad he did!This one can stand alone, although I'm sure I enjoyed it more for having read the first. That one had plenty of action, but here it...
  • Judy
    Wow! This story picked up Jane Hawk's mission and hit the ground running. I liked this one better than the first in this series - The Silent Corner. The conspiracy is much larger than she first imagined and more people she needs to try to bring down so that people won't be changed by these "idealists". Fast-paced and engrossing, I couldn't put this one down. Thanks to Dean Koontz and Random House Publishing - Ballantine through Netgalley for an a...

    Absolutely loved this. One of Koontz's best series.

    Release Date: 11.21.17Picking up immediately after the action of this novel's predecessor, The Silent Corner, The Whispering Room — Dean Koontz's latest thriller — hits the ground running. Jane Hawk, blacklisted CIA agent, is still on the run and working hard to solve the massive conspiracy she uncovered in Koontz's previous release. Certain people have been chosen to kill themselves, for no apparent reason . . . except to manage the gene poo...

    If I could I would rate this a 2 and .I read “The Silent Corner” and was curious as to how Mr. Koontz would advance the plot in this book. It was difficult for me to finish this novel, I picked it up and put it down. It starts right where the other book ended with our hero, Jane Hawk still running and trying to chase down the #1 head of the conspiracy and financier of the operation.I have to be honest and say that I really didn’t enjoy this...

    REVIEW OF THE FIRST 4 CHAPTERS ONLY ..... COURTESY OF BOOKISHFIRSTI'd almost forgotten what a Dean Koontz book did to me .... the hairs on the back of my neck tingled, an adrenaline rush, forgetting to breathe at times. This book may be his best yet.Jane Hawk has a story to tell. She is an FBI Agent, gone rogue, charged by our government of multiple murders. But the government is not telling the truth and Jane is looking for an honest reporter to...

Oh snap! What’s good under the hood: if you read my review of The Silent Corner you know Jane Hawk became my instant book girl crush - a badass who is ...
  • Nicole Sterling
    Another good Jane Hawk novel by Mr. Koontz. I would have to say that it was just as suspenseful as the first one, which is good. I liked how even though the main objective in this book was the same as the first in the series, The Silent Corner, there were multiple smaller objectives and plot twists that made this book it's own story, and not just a repeat of the first book with a few different characters added in. I had been hoping to see some mo...
  • Mary
    Book two of the Jane Hawk series (The Whispering Room) doesn't skip a beat! The Silent Corner ends and Jane has not a moment to take a breath. She is still on her mission to save humanity and the circle of evil just gets larger and larger. New subplots, new characters but same speed and forward motion. There were a few times at the end of the book that I just had to put it down because it was so intense.I was worried about Jane in the first part ...
  • Jeanne25
    I am an on and off again Koontz fan and I must admit that I have not read the prequel to this book, The Silent Corner. The beginning chapter instantly grabbed my attention and I was pretty sure this was going to be a fun ride. The characters were bold and immediately intriguing. As I read, I found The Whispering Room to have the same general theme as the Frankenstein series (which I loved) with elite, wealthy intellectuals and their strive for to...

    In Dean Koontz's second installment of the Jane Hawk series, The Whispering Room (Random House 2017), Jane Hawk continues her quest to prove that her husband, a highly-decorated Marine, didn't commit suicide but instead was murdered. She's not only been fired from the FBI but they are chasing her as a rogue agent who is a danger to the country she used to serve. The fact that she has been threatened by the people she's chasing and that her son ha...
  • Lisa Cleveland
    I truly hated this book. I didn't want to hate it because I loved the first one so much, but getting through it was a chore. The characters were heroic and villainous to such an extreme that all I could think about were Dudley Do-Right, and Snidely Whiplash. "Curses, foiled again!" The major difference of course is that one is a cartoon. The other is just cartoonish. On the plus side, I remembered why I stopped reading Dean Koontz books so long a...

    Koontz has provided us with a razor-sharp thriller involving a rogue FBI agent on the run, mind-control, twisted conspiracies, bizarre suicides, hi-tech surveillance, hidden pockets of survivors, distrust, paranoia, gun battles, and all kinds of continual non-stop action.

    Thank you NetGalley and the Publisher for allowing me to read and review this book for an honest review)The Whispering Room by Dean Koontz is the second in the thrilling Jane Hawk series. I loved it! There is never a good place to stop reading until you finish the book. Although the book is part of a series, it is very good as a stand-alone thriller. Jane was an FBI agent with the Critical Incident Response Group which was often assigned to work ...

    Although “The Whispering Room” is a work of fiction, it gives one the shuddering feeling that it could all too soon be found on a shelf with non-fiction counterparts.Jane Hawk is a modern day Xena, Warrior Princess. Once a top tier FBI agent assigned to cases involving mass murders and serial killings, she is now a rogue agent on the run from an American system of things that wants her dead. Or worse.Why?Because she is on to them.  Her husba...
  • Terri
    This book is the second book in his amazing thriller series with ex-FBI agent Jane Hawk and just gives me the creepy shivers just thinking of the premise of total mind control that is so complete you don't even realize you're no longer YOU anymore.Jane has discovered that Far Horizons has created an "upgrade" that they are testing out in the small resort town of Iron Furnace, the entire population of which are basically enslaved. Everyone except ...

    *** I received an advanced e-copy from Net Galley in exchange for my honest reviewThis is the second book in the Jane Hawk series. In the first book, Jane's husband dies by what is seemingly suicide, but she knows better. She deposits their son somewhere that he will never be found, and then takes off on a mission to clear his name, and prove he was murdered. This book picks up where The Silent Corner ended. She has discovered at least a portion ...

    3.5 starsThe wonderfully crazy-pants adventures of Jane Hawk continues in this high-octane sequel to The Silent Corner. Jane, a bad-ass former FBI agent, is still on a dangerous quest to take out the organization that caused her husband to kill himself, put her son in danger, and aims to take over the world- Stepford Wives style. Fans of the first book will be thrilled with the continuation of the conspiracy-laden chaos, which maintains a steady ...
