Publisher's Summary

A dazzling new series debuts with a remarkable heroine certain to become a new icon of suspense, propelled by the singular narrative genius of New York Times best-selling author Dean Koontz.
"I very much need to be dead."
These are the chilling words left behind by a man who had everything to live for - but took his own life. In the void that remains stands his widow, Jane, surrounded by questions destined to go unanswered...unless she does what all the grief, fear, confusion, and fury inside of her demand: find the truth, no matter what.
There is no one else to speak for Jane's husband - or the others who have followed him into death at their own hands. Although people of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have recently been committing suicide in surprising numbers, no one else is willing to give up everything just to seek, to find, to know. No one except Jane. But ahead lies only risk. Because those arrayed against her are legion...and dangerously devoted to protecting something profoundly important - or terrifying - enough to exterminate any and all in their way.
Too many have already died, and those responsible will learn that all their malevolent power may not be enough to stop a woman as clever as they are cold-blooded, as relentless as they are ruthless - and who is driven by a righteous rage they can never comprehend. Because it is born of love.

Very poor narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It is a great story and moves along quickly.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Silent Corner?

When she goes to the house and meets the girl who has had her brain altered.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Elisabeth Rodgers?

Almost anyone. The narration modulated from hardly being able to hear her to her almost yelling. When wearing headphones it is a very distracting quality.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Is this the way the elite see the future?

Any additional comments?

Dean Koontz had created very memorable characters, but develops a scary story that makes one wonder if this could happen.

Need a new narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The book, definately. But read it, don't listen. Elisabeth Rodgers was quite robotic sounding. Like when I had Alexa read a book for me before I got Audible. I hoped that I had bought a kindle version as well, but hadn't so I was stuck listening to her. The story line was good, I enjoyed the book, just not the narration.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Silent Corner?

All of it.

How could the performance have been better?

Less robotic... don't pause forever between chapters (often I thought there was something wrong because the pause seemed to go on for so long!)

Was The Silent Corner worth the listening time?

The story was. I just found the narration annoying. If I could have traded for a kindle version, I would have.

Any additional comments?

I would like to be reimbursed for this book. If I see Elisabeth Rodgers again, I won't buy the book in audible form.

First in a Series

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes and no. I listen to audio books while I am doing other things - eg driving - so I'm not usually 100% focused on the book. However, with this one, I kept having to replay lots of it, because the monotony, especially at the beginning and end, made things quite confusing.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I was really disappointed - I didn't realise it was the first in a series, so I was expecting the book to have an actual ending....

What didn’t you like about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance?

Well, for the first half of the book all the characters sounded the same as her "narration voice", so I had a lot of trouble working out when someone was talking, and who was talking. Then when she did start using "character voices" the guys all sounded like they had the same "smokers voice".
I had a lot of trouble following the story because of the narration.

Did The Silent Corner inspire you to do anything?

Yes, to read the WHOLE blurb, so I know when I'm starting a series.... especially when the next book(s) are not due for ages :(
I like to binge read series.
