Publisher's Summary

No one could have imagined Odd Thomas ever leaving the perfect, quirky comfort of Pico Mundo, least of all Odd himself. The little desert town that nurtured Odd all his life is the locus of everything he holds dear: his loyal friends, his ghostly confidants, and the place where he loved and lost his soul mate, the irreplaceable Stormy Llewellyn. Yet leave it he has, to embrace the solitude and peace of an isolated monastery high in the western mountains as he tries to find a way to live fully again.But Odd has a knack for finding himself in the path of trouble no matter where he goes — even among the eccentric monks in their sanctuary and with his steady spirit companion, the King of Rock 'n' Roll, at his side. For a killer is stalking the ancient holy halls, and Odd is about to meet an enemy who eclipses any he has yet encountered.


What the Critics Say

"The nice young fry cook with the occult powers is Koontz's most likeable creation." (The New York Times)
"An irresistibly offbeat mix of supernatural horror and laugh-out-loud humor." (Publishers Weekly)

Odds are you will LOVE this book!!!

I am an avid Dean Koontz reader & fan. So of course I have already read the first & second “Odd” books. I liked them & considered them to be entertaining though I was not necessarily a big “Odd” fan.

BUT!...This 3rd book in the series was absolutely wonderful. There are several passages that are nothing less than poetic prose; not sappy or gratuitous but enchanting. Odd was much more genuine & witty in his humor & in his observations. Though very good at figuring out where things are going, the last few chapters strayed from the assumed path & captured my complete attention to the immediate written word. During this time I was not thinking ahead to what, more than likely, was going to happen.

This book is more about the humanity of people than the inhumanity of Dean Koontz’s monsters. He has transcended his “formula” & expanded his range. For this I am very grateful. I can not wait to see more of this from him.

To put it simply....Brother Odd Thomas & Dean Koontz’s writing made me feel really, really good! Lighter in heart & spirit as well.

The odder the better!!

I don't understand some of the reviewers, I love Koontz and this is one of his best. I can't wait for Odd's next story. I am glad to see that tons of foul language is not needed to write a great novel. King's getting more foul mouthed and Koontz is getting cleaner. Thanks Dean, Keep up the good work. Maybe you are on an spiritual journey along with Odd. Enjoy the journey!!
