Brother Odd (Doubleday Large Print Home Library Edition)
Brother Odd - Doubleday Large Print Home Library Edition Author:Dean Koontz ISBN: 0-7394-7820-2 — Book Description: — From the very beginning, the Odd Thomas series was a blockbuster hit! As Publishers Weekly raved, “Once in a very great while, an author does everything right—as Koontz has in this marvelous novel…. [He] has created a hero who’s honest, humble voice will resonate with many.” N... more »ow, Odd Thomas is back—and he’s about to find evil in the holiest of places….
No one could have imagined Odd Thomas ever leaving the quirky comfort of Pico Mundo. The little desert town that nurtured Odd all his life contains everything he holds dear: his loyal friends, his ghostly confidants, and precious memories of his soul mate, Stormy Llewellyn.
But Odd leaves his home behind to seek inspiration in an isolated monastery high in the western mountains. At first, he finds comfort amongst the undeniably eccentric monks, though he most enjoys visiting with the children in the nearby convent school. And he welcomes the presence of his steady companion, the King of Rock ’n’ Roll. But late one December night, the appearance of bodachs—those dark, sinister heralds of death and disaster—hovering over the sleeping children shatters Odd’s newfound peace. For a killer is stalking the monastery’s ancient halls, and Odd is about to face an enemy who eclipses any he has ever encountered.« less

I have a great collection of Dean Koontz. I'm a great fan. But I must say this book dragged on and on. It took my months and months to force myself to finish reading it.
I liked the original "Odd Thomas" that was a super story. The second book in connection "Forever Odd" was okay but not as good as Odd Thomas. Now we have a 3rd one and it absolutely does nothing for me.
