From Amazon:

Following the explosive success of Odd Apocalypse, here is the gripping new adventure of Odd Thomas, Dean Koontz’s most celebrated character.

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 meets—and 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.


I know this seems like quite a departure from my usual YA WoW selections, but my love for Odd Thomas (and all things Dean Koontz) goes back many, many years.  I adore Odd and can't wait for the next installment in the series.  I'm also super excited they are making a movie about this amazing character. So far, I really love the cast!

What book are YOU waiting to get your hands on?
