BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Dean Koontz's Deeply Odd.
“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. 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.
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.

Akin to a low budget horror movie
I have been a fan of Koontx for decades. Love "The Watchers," and have been devoruing his books....however, I felt compelled to write this is the silliest book he has written. Ghost of Elvis following him around? Elvis walking on water? It is just too much, akin to "Beetlejuice," or a low budget horror movie - a bad one. Tried hard to keep reading, becuase I was hoodwinked into buying the three books (oh joy) for $39. I wish I had never bought any of them...time to go back to Stephen King.
Great story. Reads very fast
I have loved deans books. Particularly ones that are shrouded in dark mystery. This read very fast and is a must read for anyone who liked whispers.
A great read
This was the first Dean Koontz book I ever read, and it was amazing! I loved the entire book. This is a must read for anyone. I loved this book so much that I read the rest of the series in a matter of days. The series was great, but this book was the best of the four. Great characters and an excellent story!
