Odd Hours with Headphones (Playaway Adult Fiction)by Dean R. Koontz
Synopses & Reviews
Only a handful of fictional characters are recognized by first name alone. Dean Koontza (TM)s Odd Thomas is one such literary hero who has come alive in listenersa (TM) 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 irresistibly drawn onward, to a destiny he cannot imagine....
The legend began in the obscure little town of Pico Mundo. A fry cook named Odd was rumored to have the extraordinary ability to communicate with the dead. Through tragedy and triumph, exhilaration and heartbreak, word of Odd Thomasa (TM)s gifts filtered far beyond Pico Mundo, attracting unforgettable new friends - and enemies of implacable evil. With great gifts comes the responsibility to meet great challenges. But no mere human being was ever meant to face the darkness that now stalks the world - not even one as oddly special as Odd Thomas.
After grappling with the very essence of reality itself, after finding the veil separating him from his soul mate, Stormy Llewellyn, tantalizingly thin yet impenetrable, Odd longed only to return to a life of quiet anonymity with his two otherworldly sidekicks - his dog Boo and a new companion, one of the few who might rival his old pal Elvis. But a true hero, however humble, must persevere. 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. Now the forces arrayed against him have both official sanction and an infinitely more sinister authoritya ]and in this dark night of the soul, dawn will come only after the most shattering revelations of all.
Odd Thomas's fourth adventure breaks new ground, taking this utterly unique hero to undreamed-of new places, where both the perils he will face and the stakes for which he fights surpass all that has come before. Unabridged.
