Publisher's Summary

The pistol appeared in his hand the way a dove appears in the hand of a good magician, as if it materialized out of thin air. "You think I won’t do it right here in the open. But you’d be surprised.... You’ll drop before you get the breath to scream." The truck driver is decked out like a rhinestone cowboy, only instead of a guitar he’s slinging a gun - and Odd Thomas is on the wrong end of the barrel. Though he narrowly dodges a bullet, Odd can’t outrun the shocking vision burned into his mind...or the destiny that will drive him into a harrowing showdown with absolute evil.

How do you make sure a crime that hasn’t happened yet, never does? That’s the critical question facing Odd Thomas, the young man with a unique ability to commune with restless spirits and help them find justice and peace. But this time, it’s the living who desperately need Odd on their side. Three helpless innocents will be brutally executed unless Odd can intervene in time. Who the potential victims are and where they can be found remain a mystery. The only thing Odd knows for sure is who the killer will be: the homicidal stranger who tried to shoot him dead in a small-town parking lot.

With the ghost of Alfred Hitchcock riding shotgun and a network of unlikely allies providing help along the way, Odd embarks on an interstate game of cat and mouse with his sinister quarry. He will soon learn that his adversary possesses abilities that may surpass his own and operates in service to infinitely more formidable foes, with murder a mere prelude to much deeper designs. Traveling across a landscape haunted by portents of impending catastrophe, Odd will do what he must and go where his path leads him, drawing ever closer to the dark heart of his long journey - and, perhaps, to the bright light beyond.

What the Critics Say

"Koontz gives his character wit, good humor, a familiarity with the dark side of humanity - and moral outrage." (USA Today)

    Story
    "Sick of the preaching!!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There was a large amount of this book spent reminding me that we didn't live in the the 1950's anymore, and how horrible that is.


    What could Dean Koontz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Spend more time on the 3rd act and make the conclusion live us to the build up.


    What three words best describe David Aaron Baker’s performance?

    Simple, clean, and crisp


    Do you think Deeply Odd needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I love the series but more and more it just seems to be preaching and longing for a world that happen 60 years ago. Sure it must have been great with more crime, higher death rates, sexism, racism, lack of science and technology. I'm glad that Dean Koontz loved his childhood but believe it or not people then and now are good and want to do good things.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Great Start, Rushed Finished..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, there are parts of all the Odd books that are good.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The gradual realization by Odd that Edie is more than she appears is fun to watch evolve. There is way too much self reflection and slow to understand parts that take forever to wade through in a listening format. If this was a book, there were whole pages/chapters I might have skipped without missing anything of the story.


    Have you listened to any of David Aaron Baker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    David Aaron Baker IS Odd Thomas.


    Could you see Deeply Odd being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, I really enjoyed the first movie and thought the actors were perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable listen, not long enough to become tedious.

    I have been thoroughly enjoying watching odd make his way and this book doesn't detract from the series.

    "Another spooktacular adventure!!!"

    I really enjoyed this book series. Hate to see that it is coming to quit close (I think) even though Stormy will be happy

    "Another ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for Koontz"

    I haven't read a book from this author yet that I didn't like. And I love the "Odd" series, and he has a new one coming out soon, Saint Odd, can't wait. :)))

    "AWESOME!"

    I started the book yesterday and couldn't stop until the end. Truly a fantastic story. I like the character of Odd Thomas and the secondary characters were good too. Very well performed by David A Baker. The voices of the different characters were very good .I will certainly be following the series starting from the beginning.

    "drones on...."

    I have loved the Odd Thomas books in the past, but this one just bored me. I couldn't finish it. There were just tooooo many asides to the past, to Stormy and to things that had already happened. I didn't think that so much time should have been spent on it, because it left me saying, "get on with it". My other half, however, really liked it, so perhaps I am just impatient.
