Join Doubleday Book Club for a great deal on ODD THOMAS
The Times of London calls the sensational Dean Koontz “a master of our darkest dreams.” And, in the case of Odd Thomas, our worst nightmares….
Everyone in Pico Mundo, California, agrees that 20-year-old Odd Thomas (yes, that’s his real name) is a good-natured, regular guy. Stormy Llewellyn, his beautiful girlfriend, and police chief Wyatt Porter are among the few who know that Odd has one quirk, a “gift” some might say: he can see the dead. Many among them are tortured souls who, looking for justice, point accusing fingers, providing Odd with truths that he, in turn, gives to Chief Porter. But while Odd spends his waking moments with ghosts, it’s his dreams that haunt him. Over and over, in fitful slumber, Odd sees the aftermath of a massacre—and the slaughtered are people he cares about. So when a stranger walks into the diner where Odd mans the grill—a man surrounded by menacing shadows that, despite the searing desert sun, put a dank chill in the air—Odd is worried…big time.
The shadows, blood-thirsting demons, are everywhere, swarming in packs, frenzied by the promise of carnage to come. Could their mysterious companion be the anonymous killer in Odd’s dream? Odd discovers the man has files containing profiles of vicious mass murderers. More terrifying is the page missing from his datebook: August 15. Tomorrow…. Now Odd knows he has less than 24 hours to avert disaster. But as evil snakes its way through Pico Mundo, it may already be too late.
