Avid reader/reviewer and editor. I don't pull punches when I review, love it or hate it, you get what I think.
The Silent Corner is a bit of slow starter, but the author's talent for compelling prose draws the reader in. As the story progresses and our heroine gets deeper and deeper into a conspiracy that is both massive and terrifying, the pace picks up and makes this tale impossible to put down. One woman against the mysterious Them (with a capital T), Jane Hawk's story moves from one terrifying clue to the next, leaving her with few options and even fewer people to trust. Being the master of paranoia that he is, Dean Koontz plays on the 'what if' niggling voice in us all - What if They could do that? - and builds a horrific world where things aren't always what they seem. True-to-form, the story builds in suspense and action until the author leaves us in jaw-dropping anticipation of the next piece of the puzzle in Jane Hawk's journey for justice.
