Review Quotes:

"One of the master storytellers of this or any age."--The Tampa Tribune

"A darkly humorous literary pastiche . . . one of Koontz's best novels . . . packed with plenty of original surprises."-- The Denver Post

"[A] taut-muscled, teeth-chattering story that keeps the reader glued to the pages."--Associated Press

"Suspenseful, memorable, and thoroughly entertaining . . . One of the many reasons this novel works is Koontz's talent for creating richly drawn characters." --The Boston Globe

Publisher Marketing:
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.
