Odd Thomas

Dean Koontz
Bantam
hardcover
$26.95

Advance word is that this may be the best book Koontz has ever written. In Odd Thomas, the newly dead converse with a short order cook in a fictional California town. Blessedly free of Koontz' tendency to overwrite, this simple, character-driven narrative is designed to entertain.
