Meet Odd Thomas, the unassuming young hero of Dean Koontz’s dazzling New York Times bestseller, a gallant sentinel at the crossroads of life and death who offers up his heart in these pages and will forever capture yours.

“The dead don’t talk. I don’t know why.” But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Sometimes the silent souls who seek out Odd want justice. Occasionally their otherworldly tips help him prevent a crime. But this time it’s different.

A stranger comes to Pico Mundo, accompanied by a horde of hyena-like shades who herald an imminent catastrophe. Aided by his soul mate, Stormy Llewellyn, and an unlikely community of allies that includes the King of Rock ’n’ Roll, Odd will race against time to thwart the gathering evil. His account of these shattering hours, in which past and present, fate and destiny, converge, is a testament by which to live—an unforgettable fable for our time destined to rank among Dean Koontz’s most enduring works.

    I have yet to pick up a Koontz book that I can set down easily. He stories draw me in from the first word. I will read late into the night. Love all his books. Can't wait to start the next one.

    Nobody can write like Koontz. This is a superb book. Thomas is a different type of hero for Koontz, but just as mesmerizing as all of his others, along with the creepiness and terror that live in Koontz's books. I truly enjoyed this book.

    One of the best books I have read. I have now read it maybe, lets just say 5 times so I don't seem completely crazy. The plot us sublime, and really highlights the good and evil in this world, and the abilities that lie within everyone. Classic Koontz, mixing seriousness with periods of comic relief to keep the reader from getting too blue. Odd Thomas is an amazing character that grew up too fast and missed out on his childhood. His character really shows an inner depth that is lacking in characters from numerous other authors. Now, to those people who consider the subject of ghosts and other anomalies just malarkey probably put it back at their local bookstore after reading the back saying "What garbage is this! This sounds like some type of Twilight crap!" I want to say this. You can't judge a book by its cover, especially this one. Now, I would say more, but I'm afraid I might let something slip that would ruin the book. Lets just say, has Koontz ever let you down before? This series comes HIGHLY recommended by myself and at the time of this post, all but one other commenter. Yours Truly, A Big Fan

    I love Odd. I love these characters. The story could move faster. Who wouldn't love to see the people Odd has the privilege of enter acting with? The only passed over people I see are angry men. Women are more helpful than scared.
  • Awesome book!
