Review Quotes:

"Koontz's most likable creation."--The New York Times

"Koontz forges the kind of sweeping melodrama complete with screwball laughs, nail-biting moments, and surprises that is the bedrock of American narrative fiction."--Booklist

"One of the most remarkable and appealing characters in current fiction . . . a page-turning account . . . beautifully written . . . another literary home run." --The Virginian-Pilot

"Takes off at breakneck speed . . . a superb story from one of our contemporary masters."-- San Antonio Express-News

Publisher Marketing:

Only a handful of fictional characters are recognized by first name alone. Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas is one such literary hero, who has come alive in readers' imaginations as he explores the greatest mysteries of this world and the next with his inimitable wit, heart, and quiet gallantry. Now Koontz follows Odd as he is drawn onward, to a destiny he cannot imagine. Haunted by dreams of an all-encompassing red tide, Odd is pulled inexorably to the sea, to a small California coastal town where nothing is as it seems.
