by Dean Koontz & Queenie Chan Odd Thomas is perhaps the most memorable and beloved character Dean Koontz has ever created. The charismatic young fry cook from Pico Mundo, California, has appeared in three New York Times-bestselling novels: Odd Thomas, Forever Odd, and Brother Odd. Odd, who has the ability to communicate with the dead, has inspired more reader letters than any other of his characters, according to Koontz. In Odd We Truth - a prequel to the original novel - follows Odd's race to solve the murder of a young boy whose killer appears to be stalking a second child. Odd's girlfriend, Stormy, Police Chief Porter, the ghost of Elvis Presley, and many other characters from the novels make their return.
