Nie war das Grauen bedrohlicher ... Ein merkwürdiger Fremder kommt in den kleinen Wüstenort Pico Mundo. Ihn umgeben hyänenartige Schatten, Vorboten eines fürchterlichen Todes. Doch nur der etwas einfältige Odd Thomas erkennt sie. Kann er das drohende Massaker verhindern? Odd Thomas lebt bescheiden und zufrieden als Koch in einem kleinen amerikanischen Provinznest. Hochgeistiges ist ihm fremd, doch er hat eine besondere Gabe: Er sieht die Toten und kann mit ihnen kommunizieren. Und er sieht Bodachs, lebende Schatten, die sich von Leid und Verderben nähren. Als ein merkwürdiger Fremder, umflirrt von diesen Schatten, das Restaurant betritt, in dem Odd arbeitet, weiß er, dass Fürchterliches droht. Trotz der Warnungen seiner impulsiven Freundin Stormy wagt er es, dem Mann nachzuspüren und in sein Haus einzudringen. Was er in einem Geheimzimmer findet, lässt ihm das Blut in den Adern gefrieren: einen Schrein, der all den Massenmördern dieser Welt gewidmet ist ...

“Koontz gives [Odd Thomas] wit, good humor, a familiarity with the dark side of humanity—and moral outrage.”—USA Today Once presided over by a Roaring ’20s Hollywood mogul, the magnificent West Coast estate known as Roseland now harbors a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants—and their guests: Odd Thomas, the young fry cook who sees the dead and tries to help them, and Annamaria, his inscrutably charming traveling companion. Fresh from a harrowing clash with lethal adversaries, they welcome their host’s hospitality.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 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. Praise for Deeply Odd and Dean Koontz’s Odd Thomas series “Not since Watchers has Dean Koontz created such an endearing and enduring character as Odd Thomas. . . . One of our contemporary masters.”—San Antonio Express-News “[A] popular series . . . Koontz asks real questions about the nature of good and evil.”—The New York Times Book Review “Odd evokes the homespun wisdom of Forrest Gump amid the mind-spinning adventures of a Jack Bauer. . . . The ultimate Everyman . . . an avatar of hope and honor and courage for all of us—the linchpin of a rollicking good tale.”—BookPage “There’s never anything predictable about an Odd Thomas adventure. Another satisfying entry in this wildly popular series. It’s Koontz, and it’s Odd. Class dismissed.”—Booklist

The singular journey of Odd Thomas is approaching its unforgettable conclusion in Saint Odd. But before Odd’s destiny is revealed, this exclusive eBook short story looks back—way back—to where it all began for Odd Thomas and Stormy Llewellyn, two souls who are destined to be together forever. Amid the dizzying rides, tantalizing games of chance, and fanciful attractions of a state fair, two teenage sweethearts on the cusp of life and love’s pleasures find their way to a shadowy carnival tent brimming with curiosities. There, from the bizarre and enthralling Gypsy Mummy, a mechanized merchant of dreams and prognosticator of tomorrows, the young couple learns what fate promises for them. But fate, for Odd Thomas and Stormy Llewellyn, is something altogether different: full of dark corners, sharp edges, and things no seer or soothsayer could ever anticipate. And for Odd Thomas, a gallant fry cook from a sleepy California desert town, the future beckons—to listen to unquiet spirits, pursue unsettling mysteries, and learn shocking truths . . . for a purpose far greater than himself. Acclaim for Dean Koontz and his Odd Thomas novels “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) “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 “One would be hard-pressed to find a more satisfying read. . . .

Characters and the search for meaning, exquisitely crafted, are the soul of his work. . . . One of the master storytellers of this or any age.”—The Tampa Tribune

Die dunkelste Nacht des Lebens beginnt Odd Thomas ist ein bescheidener, freundlicher Grillkoch mit besonderen Gaben. Wie von einer unsichtbaren Kraft gezogen, gelangt er in ein scheinbar beschauliches Küstendorf. Hier sucht ihn ein ständig wiederkehrender Alptraum heim: Ein blutrotes Meer verschlingt alles Lebendige. Doch zunächst sind es Menschen, die ihm nach dem Leben trachten – gnadenlos und unendlich böse. Odd Thomas hat seine Freundin bei einem grausamen Attentat verloren, sein bester Freund wurde entführt, und selbst in einem verlassenen Kloster suchte ihn das Böse heim. Die ruhigen Zeiten, da er noch als zufriedener Grillkoch lebte, der manchmal den Toten helfen konnte, scheinen für immer vorbei zu sein. Wieder zerrt eine übermenschliche Kraft an ihm, und als er ihr folgt, landet er in einem kleinen, scheinbar ruhigen kalifornischen Küstenort. Schon kurz nach seiner Ankunft quält ihn ein Alptraum: Eine blutrote, apokalyptische Flut vernichtet alles Lebende. Bei einem Abendspaziergang auf dem Pier überkommt ihn eine ähnliche Vision – und schon kurz darauf bricht das reale Grauen aus. Drei finstere Gestalten machen gnadenlos Jagd auf ihn. Ein Großteil der Bevölkerung und der Polizeichef stecken offensichtlich mit ihnen unter einer Decke. Und ihr Ziel ist keinesfalls der Tod nur eines einzelnen Mannes. Sie haben Millionen von Opfern im Visier.

Odd Thomas ist zurück! Eigentlich ist Odd Thomas ein bescheidener, sympathischer Schnellimbisskoch. Doch er hat besondere Fähigkeiten: Er kann die Geister der Toten sehen. Diesmal ist es eine ermordete Frau, die seine Hilfe sucht. Er soll ihren kleinen Sohn retten – vor dem eigenen Vater. Schon bald merkt Odd, dass noch viel mehr Menschenleben auf dem Spiel stehen. Gemeinsam mit seiner hochschwangeren Begleiterin Annamaria gelangt Odd Thomas auf den Landsitz eines mächtigen Filmproduzenten. Da Odd geradezu körperlich angezogen wird von dunklen Geheimnissen und unmenschlicher Gewalt, überrascht ihn eine unheilvolle Geistererscheinung dort nicht: Eine ermordete Frau erscheint ihm und fleht ihn an, ihr Kind zu retten, das in tödlicher Gefahr schwebt. Also durchstreift Odd das Anwesen, findet aber zunächst statt eines Kindes nur weitere Schrecken: ein Mausoleum voller ermordeter Frauen, am helllichten Tag einbrechende Nacht und dunkle, menschenähnliche Kreaturen, die gnadenlos Jagd auf ihn machen. Offensichtlich hat sich der Hausherr mit bösen Kräften verbunden. Aber zu welchem Zweck? Als Odd Thomas seinen Schützling endlich findet, erkennt er, dass nicht nur Timothys und sein Leben in Gefahr ist. Sondern das unendlich vieler Menschen.
