Review of THE WHISPERING ROOM by Dean Koontz

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

THE WHISPERING ROOM is more than a thriller; it is an observation of what our world can become like if we allow nanotechnology and the basic greed of men to persist. Jane continues her saga in this book, pursuing the money-man behind the nano devices that led her husband to commit suicide. D.J. Michael seems to be a foe that no one can get to, but Jane is intelligent and determined. There is another part of the story here; the nano devices have spread to rural areas, including one entire town that has been taken over by them. And there is a trigger phrase to get the people there to become automatically responsive to whatever command is given to them. Jane teams up temporarily with a small-town sheriff and together they make a difference in this small town. Luther is a lovable character, tough but fair and a welcome addition to the plot. At the end of the novel, you want more…you just want Jane to win all the time, but you can see a foreshadowing that this may come with a high price. This was a wonderful book that kept me reading late into the night, with my heart racing and my fingers crossed for the best outcomes for Jane and Luther. You have to read it to believe it; the author is an absolute master at drawing you into the story.
