Odd Thomas - Dean Koontz

Product Description(
Odd Thomas, who narrates, is odd indeed: only 20, he works contentedly as a fry cook in a small fictional California town, despite a talent for writing. The reason for his lack of ambition? A much rarer talent: Odd sees and converses with ghosts, the lingering dead who have yet to pass on, a secret he has kept from nearly everyone but his girlfriend, an eccentric author friend and the local police chief, whom he occasionally helps solve terrible crimes. Odd also has the ability to see bodachs, malevolent spirits that feast on pain and whose presence signifies a likelihood of imminent violence. The proximity of bodachs to a weird-looking stranger in town, whom Odd dubs "Fungus Man," alerts Odd that trouble is brewing; breaking into Fungus Man's house, Odd discovers not only hundreds of bodachs but a shrine to serial killers that helps him deduce that somehow Fungus Man will wreak widespread havoc very soon-so Odd is caught in a classic race against time to deter catastrophe.

My Thoughts:  I love reading Dean Koontz books......but they scare the heck out of me.  I can't read them when it's dark out, it has to be broad daylight out.  I know it's just a book but they are really scary sometimes.  This one wasn't too scary.  More like a mystery to me.  I wanted to find out what the heck was happening and where the havoc was going to be.  So now I've got to read the next book in the series.  To see how Odd Thomas is getting along.  If you like mystery, scary books and a little romance this book will be just for you.   Head over to Amazon to check it out.  I've linked the book to it's page so you won't have to search for it.
