“The Silent Corner” by Dean Koontz

“The Silent Corner” by Dean Koontz

Jane is on a quest but it’s getting her in big trouble. After her husband’s apparent suicide, Jane is convinced that he was murdered and she begins to research suicides throughout the country. What she learns is that the suicide rate is on the rise and many were people who had no risk of being suicidal. Jane suspects there is a mind-control conspiracy behind all this and when someone enters her home and threatens her 5 year-old son she is convinced that someone with massive resources is trying to silence her. Her search for answers will take her across the country and force her to do things she would never have thought possible. Her FBI career and her life are under threat but Jane is determined to find answers and justice.

This book is thrilling and creepy and scary and just a delicious read. I immediately connected with Jane and was completely swept up in her mission. I really liked how the author was able to add so much depth to her character. She is not just one thing. In this story she is and FBI agent, but she is also a mother, and a concerned citizen. Her ability is balance all the aspects of her life, while at the same time being chased by assassins is remarkable. Of course, I would expect nothing less than a complex character from this author. Along the journey, Jane gets help from a whole cast of other characters, among whom the good guys are as good as the bad guys are bad. This is also one of those books that will make you pause for a moment and consider how close we are to having the type of technology described and whether or not we really want it. This is a big book but it’s worth every minute. There is never a dull moment.

  1. Great review! I am glad I can actually look forward to a Dean Koontz again after the disaster of Ashley Bell and only lackluster books before that. I hope this is back to the level of his earlier works like “Intensity” and “Lightening”.
