This is my first book by Dean Koontz (I think) at least with his Odd Thomas character. I have been wanting to get read about this character for some time. Odd Thomas is a fry cook who lives in California and can see the spirits of the dead. They can't talk to him but can make signs etc.. He has other gifts that lead him on to help others with their problems involving the supernatural. He is a likeable character who does not like his gifts and he expects to die at any time.
I can't wait to read more. Although I need to start at the beginning as there are many Odd books.
