My rating: 5 Stars
Following the devastating suicide of her husband, Jane Hawk has been granted leave from the FBI. She begins an unofficial investigation of his suicide, but she discovers several things right away, including the fact that there is a huge conspiracy at play. Getting to the bottom of this is critical to Jane, especially because they have threatened her young son and now she has him in hiding.
Why are so many people suddenly taking their own lives? Jane quickly uncovers a conspiracy of unimaginable proportions. What is this nefarious, apparent mind control going on? Who will listen to Jane? How many lives have to be lost while she is trying to stay one step ahead of government agencies and the ruthless people that will stop at nothing to put an end to Jane's search for the truth?
So many questions, so little time. This book caused me to lose a night's sleep because I could not put it down. I literally read this book from cover to cover in one sitting. Dean Koontz has outdone himself with this first book in his Jane Hawk series. I am currently reading The Whispering Room with the same eagerness.
