The second installment in the Jane Hawk series continues the relentless pursuit of Jane as she pursues the evil faction behind her husband's apparent suicide. Much like the first novel, The Whispering Room has non stop action and more shocking revelations. Its eeriness invokes the fear that our future might hold such inconceivable possibilities, as well. You will find yourself wanting to "test" your family members by ordering them to "Play Manchurian with me." For me, Koontz is the king of creepy, and I am never disappointed when I pick up one of his tales. This one was lengthy, but I did not want to put it down. I will be eager to read the third book and discover what lies ahead for Jane, her son, and all her cohorts.
