The pistol appeared in his hand the way a dove appears in the hand of a good magician, as if it materialized out of thin air. “You think I won’t do it right here in the open. But you’d be surprised. . . . You’ll drop before you get the breath to scream.”    The truck driver is decked out like a rhinestone cowboy, only instead of a guitar he’s slinging a gun—and Odd Thomas is on the wrong end of the barrel. Though he narrowly dodges a bullet, Odd can’t outrun the shocking vision burned into his mind . . . or the destiny that will drive him into a harrowing showdown with absolute evil.   DEEPLY ODD   How do you make sure a crime that hasn’t happened yet, never does? That’s the critical question facing Odd Thomas, the young man with a unique ability to commune with restless spirits and help them find justice and peace. But this time, it’s the living who desperately need Odd on their side. Three helpless innocents will be brutally executed unless Odd can intervene in time. Who the potential victims are and where they can be found remain a mystery. The only thing Odd knows for sure is who the killer will be: the homicidal stranger who tried to shoot him dead in a small-town parking lot.    With the ghost of Alfred Hitchcock riding shotgun and a network of unlikely allies providing help along the way, Odd embarks on an interstate game of cat and mouse with his sinister quarry. He will soon learn that his adversary possesses abilities that may surpass his own and operates in service to infinitely more formidable foes, with murder a mere prelude to much deeper designs. Traveling across a landscape haunted by portents of impending catastrophe, Odd will do what he must and go where his path leads him, drawing ever closer to the dark heart of his long journey—and, perhaps, to the bright light beyond.   ACCLAIM FOR DEAN KOONTZ AND HIS ODD THOMAS NOVELS   “Koontz gives his character wit, good humor, a familiarity with the dark side of humanity—and moral outrage.”—USA Today   “This is Koontz working at his pinnacle, providing terrific entertainment that deals seriously with some of the deepest themes of human existence: the nature of evil, the grip of fate and the power of love.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)   “Supernatural thrills with a side of laughs.”—The Denver Post   “The nice young fry cook with the occult powers is Koontz’s most likable creation . . . candid, upright, amusing and sometimes withering.”—The New York Times

AudiobookIt's been a long while since I read an Odd Thomas book and after listening to this audiobook I remember why - they're so horrible! I hate seeing so much depravity and this one with the main victims was extra depraved. I have the 7th book loaded onto my MP3 but I think I'm going remove it an...

3.0 Dean Koontz Untitled 4
Although I enjoyed this latest instalment in the Odd Thomas series, I couldn't help thinking there was an awful lot of 'filler' used between sequences. Part of the charm of these books is Odd's tendency to ruminate (often with humour) on the horrors that he faces but in this instance I found myself ...

2.0 Deeply Odd Review
Deeply Odd is a hard book to review. For the first time in this series, you must have read all previous volumes of Odd's adventures to receive the grand picture. Throughout Deeply Odd, our fry-cook-turned-reluctant-hero hearkens back to every other novel (aside from Forever Odd, of course, as I beli...
