Odd Thomas

Odd Thomas
by Koontz, Dean

Odd Thomas lives a fairly simple life in Pico Mundo, California. He has a girlfriend, Stormy Llewellyn and works as a short order cook at Pico Mundo Grille but the weird thing about him is…he can see and talk to dead people, but the dead don’t talk back. Because only he can see them, he feels compelled to help solve their untimely deaths with the help of his girlfriend and the Chief of Police, Wyatt Porter.

Odd Thomas also sees halfman/halfdog like creatures he calls bodacks. They signify an upcoming death. So one night when he sees a swarm of those malevolent spirits crawling around a house he knows the family inside is probably going to die . . . unless he does something, fast . . . but what?

Odd Thomas is also available as a downloadable e-book and a downloadable audiobook.
