    Will Trent, a dedicated agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for 15 years, knows that there’s definitely such a thing as a cop’s intuition - which is why he should have listened to his own. While in a restroom at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Will overhears a girl’s pleading, plaintive voice: "Please, I wanna go home." Something isn’t right here, thinks Will. He feels it in his gut. But he waits too long to act, and now the girl and the anxious, angry man she’s with have disappeared into the crowds at the busiest passenger airport in the world.

    Story

    I liked the title - and the book was a decent read - decent listen. Karin Slaughter has a perfect name for her genre, and thus, I was 'snatched' into listening to this one. It was a culmination of several books I've read in the past, but had enough twists to make it worthwhile.

    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 Thomas' gifts filtered far beyond Pico Mundo, attracting unforgettable new friends - and enemies of implacable evil.

    Story

    Our lovable fry cook and his mental magnetism has brought him to the place he now resides. He is plagued by nightmares of an apocalyptic setting. When the book begins, Odd has found work cooking for an old movie star Hutch Hutchinson, who believes his life imitated his art. Odd goes for a walk and we meet Anna Maria who is pregnant or appears to be physically. It is then the book turns into a swift save the world tour-de-force. After and altercation with three men Odd is on the run.

    He is eventually arrested and in the jail finds out the extent of the plan to destroy America. Flying by the seat of his pants Odd sets out to foil the plan. I won't say if he succeeds or not but the ending is a little cryptic on where the series is going. Wherever the Odd's journey takes him next I will be there. Guaranteed.Haunted by dreams of a powerful red tide, Odd Thomas, accompanied by two otherworldly sidekicks--his dog Boo and the Chairman of the Board--is drawn to a small California coastal town, where nothing is as it appears and where he confronts overwhelming and sinister forces out to stop his quest.
    Koontz's latest Odd novel (by the way, a very likable character), starts out very slow and drawn out. About a third of the way through it picks up and pulls you in.

    Lately Koontz's writing style is more literary prose than suspense. He is a very skilled writer but has been lacking in creating a suspenseful supernatural thriller. The Odd series is not his greatest work, but since I've read them all and they're quick reads, I'll continue to see where this series goes.

    From inside: ...If evil geniuses are so rare, why do so many bad people get away with so many crimes against their fellow citizens and, when they become leaders of nations, against humanity?

    Edmund Burke provided the answer in 1795: The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

    FBI special agent Kate O’Hare has made it her mission to nail international con artist Nicolas Fox. When she discovers his plot to plunder a venture capitalist’s 20th-story Chicago penthouse of all its cash and treasures while the self-proclaimed "King of Hostile Takeovers" is getting married, Kate is 85 percent - okay maybe 92 percent - sure that she’s finally going to bag Nick Fox. Problem is, first Kate has to convince her boss, building security, and maybe even herself, that wedding planner Merrill Stubing is actually Nicolas Fox. Second, she has to figure out how to corner and capture him without disrupting the event of the year.

    I love Scott Bricks voice. I go through all the samples just to hear him speak! lol Yes .. I am weird and a tad bit crazy - and these are the exact kind of books I like to read too! Pros and Cons - a Short Story was exactly that. A Short Story - so why all the sad faces and lesser than decent reviews kids? Anyway, this was a fun-ny story. Yes .. we all need to now go buy "The Heist'. But you can't blame anyone for smart marketing. Scott Brick made this listen all that much more awesome.
