In a sinister encounter with a rogue truck driver tricked up like a rhinestone cowboy, Odd has a disturbing vision of a shocking multiple homicide that has not yet been committed. Across California, into Nevada, and back again, Odd embarks on a riveting road chase to prevent the tragedy. Along the way, he meetsand charms a collection of eccentrics who become his allies in a terrifying battle against a sociopath of singular boldness and cleverness--and a shadowy network of mysterious, like-minded murderers whose chilling resources seem almost supernatural.

When the main character of a novel can see the dead, you have to have a certain suspension of disbelief. I'm prepared to do that, and the first novel in this series didn't require much of that. By this point, I'm having to suspend so much disbelief that it could kill me if it falls. Every chapter more characters turn up drawn to Odd, dispensing mystical advice and pithy phrases. And I don't want to get into the fact that the Chauffeur Odd replaces died aged 90 or so, and his mother was 104.

I love Dean Koontz but he got very wordy in this one. Overly descriptive and philosophical. Come back to us, Dean!

So far I have loved all the Odd Thomas books. I love the author's sense of humour and his choice of words. I am looking forward to reading this one and any others he comes out with. I tried ready some of his other books but they were way too scary for me!
Thank you Dean Kootz for providing me with a series in which I can enjoy your great writing skill without the nightmarish stuff.

I've read several Koontz novels before and generally found them entertaining. But I LOVE the Odd Thomas series. Can't wait for new ones to come out then I'm completely sucked in. Good development of characters that builds throughout the series. And keeps you guessing, unlike many mystery novels these day. Totally recommend you start with "Odd Thomas" and read the whole series!
