Thriller Psychological | Paranormal
Every so often a character so captures the hearts and
imaginations of readers that he seems to take on a life of
his own long after the final page is turned. For such a
character, one book is not enoughâ€”readers must know what
happens next. Now Dean Koontz returns with the novel his
fans have been demanding. With the emotional power and
sheer storytelling artistry that are his trademarks,
Koontz takes up once more the story of a unique young hero
and an eccentric little town in a tale that is equal parts
suspense and terror, adventure and mysteryâ€”and altogether
Weâ€™re all a little odd beneath
the surface. Heâ€™s the most unlikely hero youâ€™ll ever meetâ€”
an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at
twice. But thereâ€™s so much more to any of us than meets
the eyeâ€”and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives
always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico
Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday
events. Odd never asked to communicate with the deadâ€”itâ€™s
something that just happened. But as the unofficial
goodwill ambassador between our world and theirs, heâ€™s got
a duty to do the right thing. Thatâ€™s the way Odd sees it
and thatâ€™s why heâ€™s won hearts on both sides of the divide
between life and death.
A childhood friend of Oddâ€™s
has disappeared. The worst is feared. But as Odd applies
his unique talents to the task of finding the missing
person, he discovers something worse than a dead body,
encounters an enemy of exceptional cunning, and spirals
into a vortex of terror. Once again Odd will stand against
our worst fears. Around him will gather new allies and
old, some living and some not. For in the battle to come,
there can be no innocent bystanders, and every sacrifice
can tip the balance between despair and hope. Whether
youâ€™re meeting Odd Thomas for the first time or heâ€™s
already an old friend, youâ€™ll be led on an unforgettable
a world of terror, wonder and delightâ€”
to a revelation that can change your life. And you can
have no better guide than Odd Thomas.
