Description

Loop me in, odd one. The words, spoken in the deep of night by a sleeping child, chill the young man watching over her. For this was a favorite phrase of Stormy Llewellyn, his lost love, and Stormy is dead, gone forever from this world. In the haunted halls of the isolated monastery where he had sought peace, Odd Thomas is stalking spirits of an infinitely darker nature Through two New York Times bestselling novels Odd Thomas has established himself as one of the most beloved and unique fictional heroes of our time. Now, wielding all the power and magic of a master storyteller at the pinnacle of his craft, Dean Koontz follows Odd into a singular new world where he hopes to make a fresh beginning-but where he will meet an adversary as old and inexorable as time itself. St. Bartholomew's Abbey sits in majestic solitude amid the wild peaks of California's high Sierra, a haven for children otherwise abandoned, and a sanctuary for those seeking insight. Odd Thomas has come here to learn to live fully again, and among the eccentric monks, their other guests, and the nuns and young students of the attached convent school, he has begun to find his way. The silent spirits of the dead who visited him in his earlier life are mercifully absent, save for the bell-ringing Brother Constantine and Odd's steady companion, the King of Rock 'n' Roll. But trouble has a way of finding Odd Thomas, and it slinks back onto his path in the form of the sinister bodachs he has met previously, the black shades who herald death and disaster, and who come late one December night to hover above the abbey's most precious charges. For Odd is about to face an enemy who eclipses any he has yet encountered, as he embarks on a journey of mystery, wonder, and sheer suspense that surpasses all that has come before.

Professional reviews

"After three novels featuring the aptly named Odd Thomas, it's clear Dean Koontz has a winner. I like Odd Thomas! I want to read more about him, especially after the teasing ending of his latest and greatest adventure, BROTHER ODD. Actor David Aaron Baker has performed all three "Odd" novels, and it's hard to imagine anyone else doing the fourth. Baker captures the gentleness of Odd; the benevolent sadness of his brilliant 400-pound friend, Oswald; and the confident and godly monks with whom Odd sought refuge after his girlfriend was murdered. The peculiar young man, whose mother meant to name him "Todd," sees demons called "bodocks," which swarm in places where death and destruction are imminent. It's up to Odd to figure out the impending danger and stop it. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
