The Silent Corner - Dean Koontz

Wow, this one crazy, out there concept that humans could be programmed to hear a couple of words and then turn into robots and do what is asked of them. And, people were buying into it! For a $300,000 membership fee you could visit a place where all the women are there to do anything and everything you ask. This guy even had coyotes programmed to be watchdogs on his very private property in Napa.

A freaky concept that had Jane Hawk looking for answers as to how her husband could be dancing and singing one minute and then slitting his throat in the bathtub the next. And he isn't the only one. The notes they leave before they commit the deed are VERY strange!

I read this book in one sitting as I just could not put it down. Jane Hawk's life, as well as her five year old son's, is threatened. She has bad guys chases her everywhere she goes. The things that she does in order to stay one step ahead kept me mesmerized and turning those pages. I didn't even stop when the sunlight started coming through my windows! I had to finish the book and see what happened.

I didn't realize until the end that this was going to be a series and I can't wait to read the next book!!
