Odd Hours: An Odd Thomas Novel (eBook)



BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Dean Koontz's Odd Apocalypse.
Only a handful of fictional characters are recognized by first name alone. Dean Koontz’s Odd Thomas is one such literary hero, who has come alive in readers’ imaginations as he explores the greatest mysteries of this world and the next with his inimitable wit, heart, and quiet gallantry. Now Koontz follows Odd as he is drawn onward, to a destiny he cannot imagine. Haunted by dreams of an all-encompassing red tide, Odd is pulled inexorably to the sea, to a small California coastal town where nothing is as it seems.

Praise for Odd Hours: An Odd Thomas Novel…

“Winning … Quirky humor and an endearing voice….. Sensitive portrayals of minor characters whose lives [Odd] Thomas touches are a plus.”—Publishers Weekly

“It starts with a bang and goes like a house afire straight through to the penultimate chapter…. Koontz forges the kind of sweeping melodrama, complete with screwball laughs, nail-biting moments, and surprises, that is the bedrock of American narrative entertainment.”—Booklist

“The nice young fry cook with the occult powers is Koontz’s most likable creation.” —New York Times

“Odd’s strange gifts, coupled with his intelligence and self-effacing humor, make him one of the most quietly authoritative characters in recent popular fiction.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“I can’t wait for the next one.”—Mark Graham, Rocky Mountain News

“Odd Thomas [is] exactly the kind of hero that’s needed.” —South Florida Sun-Sentinal

“Odd Thomas is another name for courage, truth, and devotion to your fellow man.” —Baton Rouge Advocate
