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)

    "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.

    Story
    "I'd take more ODD anytime"
    Would you listen to Deeply Odd again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to all of the Odd Thomas books again. Dean Koontz has hit a deep well of character that is relatable to just about everyone. Odd Thomas has just the right mix of supernatural (without being over the top), trauma, mystery, comedy and the naivete that makes human being.....................human.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Deeply Odd?

    I think it was on the roof when he saw himself............don't want to ruin it by saying more than that. Leading up to the climax of that moment you find yourself telling him what to do.


    Which character – as performed by David Aaron Baker – was your favorite?

    I LOVE Edie and his potrayal of her is wonderful. I can see her face after his description. The way he becomes Edie matches the description.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think the end of this one did more so than any other. It made me feel like there is an end coming to the series. I could feel his pain more then before. Not just physical pain but the tiredness that comes with emotional and mental stress.


    Any additional comments?

    I am an avid reader/listener. I love the written word more than most things in life. Rather it's physically read or listened to. It has the power to give or take such a large range of emotions. It has the gift of taking us away to some place else where maybe our lives don't seem as bad in that moment. With that being said I have to say that the Odd Thomas books are by far one of my most favorite series of books. I will truly mourn the passing of this series and rejoice when Odd moves on to the next stage to be with his beloved Stormy. Thank you Mr. Koontz for a character I could get to know, laugh with, laugh at sometimes (although never unkindly), root for and to get to know so completely as Odd Thomas. He's been a true gift.

    To those constant readers if you haven't tried a little Odd in your life you should.

    "Stellar"
    If you could sum up Deeply Odd in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing Entertaining Storytelling


    What did you like best about this story?

    The writing is superb. The reading by David Aaron Baker is also world class. So believable and enjoyable. I wish other Audio books could compare to this, however, most don't even come close to this series.


    What does David Aaron Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is the manifestation of his character. He brings you into his experience with his style, his vocals are unmatched in my opinion. Listen to the entire series, you will not be sorry.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. Both, this series is just an amazing work of art. Koontz really weaves incredible, yet strangely believable characters into his stories and brings you close to them. He is a master. Listening to these books during long road trips was magical. If you can listen to this series in long stretches on the road it is an amazing experience.

    Story
    "Better, but no cigar"

    I've enjoyed this series for a while and was DEEPLY disappointed in the last couple of books. I was afraid I was ready to say goodbye when this one came along. At least I'm not ticked off at using my hard earned credit. The good news is the addition of a great new character ("call me Edie") that almost made the weird presence of the perpetually pregnant Madonna like character less annoying. But not quite. There is more humor, fewer monsters without rules, and frankly, at least this one has a plot. So I'll just keep complaining that I miss the old Odd, and pony up my credit for the next book. And, the narrator is pitch perfect as usual. Glad he had something to work with on this one.

    "Starts great; plot is MIA and dialogue pedantic."
    What would have made Deeply Odd better?

    Keep focus on the plot and continue the witty dialogue.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dean Koontz again?

    Yes, but with hesitation.


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

    Have not listened to narrator previously; enjoyable.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Deeply Odd?

    I couldn't justify the time to finish this book. Got lost after the "Star Truck" scene.


    Any additional comments?

    Great promise! Poor timing on the author's "acid trip", stream of consciousness experiment.

    Would you try another book from Dean Koontz and/or David Aaron Baker?

    Not if they were like this one. I had to stop listening to it. It was hurting my head.


    Has Deeply Odd turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes. It would have to be Free.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not the narrators fault.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Deeply Odd?

    The entire book.
