ODD THOMAS

Sometimes the silent souls who seek Odd out want justice. Occasionally their otherwordly 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.
