Summary:

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'm usually a dean koontz fan but this book was terrible. I downloaded based off all the high reviews and I have to strongly disagree. The book was slow, overly descriptive, and dragged on and on with almost no action. I fast forwarded through a few parts hoping it would pick up and it never did. Do not waste your credit, not a good book at all. Narrator was good however.

  • Jessica Canjar

    Great story. Odd is a very lovable character. The narrator really brought this book alive!

    This is one of my favorite book series. Read the book. Seen the movie. Read the book again. You feel what Thomas feels. And I don't know why I would want to feel what he feels. Odd.

    This was my first Dean Koontz novel. I do like the Odd Thomas character and look forward to listening to others. Narration was great.

    I love this series! The narrator fits the main character perfectly!

  • Rick L

    Great story! Well paced and very entertaining with humor, suspense and action woven together to really keep you at the edge of your seat with anticipation. I also feel David Aaron Baker does a great job reading this story as well.

    Odd Thomas is my favorite Dean Koontz hero. Here is hoping that Koontz never tires of writing adventures for Odd.

    Took me years cause I never was piqued with interest when reading what the books are about, now I can't wait for the next! And the narrator was great.
