Book Review – The Silent Corner


The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz (Harper Collins) ISBN: 9780007518074

Meet FBI Agent Jane Hawk, young and ambitious with supermodel good looks, a sharp mind and tenacious attitude. She was a woman who had it all going for her, until it was cruelly snatched away.

Jane has recently lost her beloved husband to a disturbingly unexpected suicide. While trying to make sense of her tragic loss, Jane starts to spot some disturbing patterns. Her FBI instinct tells her that there is something else behind his death.

While traversing the country investigating leads, Jane is drawn into a cat-and-mouse game with unseen enemies who are tracking her. As she uncovers more sinister suicides that seem to have been triggered by telephonic instruction, she gets closer and closer to uncovering who is behind her husband’s death.

The organisation after her will stoop to any level to get Jane to stop meddling. That means even those closest to her could pay a murderous price. Risking it all, Jane decides to go off grid to uncover the perpetrators of horrific experimentation, and bring her husband’s murderers to justice.

The Silent Corner is a fast-paced, bold, action-packed thriller. Dean Koontz lays bare the dangers of our modern reliance on social media and technology.
