    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.

    "Not a Classic"
    Overall

    I am a big fan of Dean Koontz and have enjoyed the earlier books featuring Odd Thomas. This one missed the mark. It lacked the constant suspense of earlier books.

    Odd's narratives have become flippant boilerplate in this book. Hoping for better from Mr. Koontz next time.

    At an international medical conference in Prague, Dr. Fiona Devin, an American scientist attached to the Department of Defense, is contacted by one of her Russian colleagues. Dr. Valentin Petrenko, a specialist in rare diseases, is concerned about a small cluster of deaths in Moscow but even more concerned by the Russian government's refusal to publicly release any information or data on the outbreak. When he meets with Devin to pass on his case notes and samples, the two are attacked.

    Overall

    The only thing similar to a real Robert Ludlum novel is the use of the author's name. The book has a Ludlum-like plot, but it reads like it was assigned to a seventh grade English class to complete the prose. It's poorly written.

    I have listened to hundreds of books and this is the worst because of the narrative and the narrators. The narrators try their best to make the book come to life but the lousy narrative fights them with every line.

    If you want a great spy novel, try the recent ones by Vince Flynn. These are great audio books with an exciting plot line and excellent narrator.
