“Koontz gives [Odd Thomas] wit, good humor, a familiarity with the dark side of humanity—and moral outrage.”—USA Today
Once presided over by a Roaring ’20s Hollywood mogul, the magnificent West Coast estate known as Roseland now harbors a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants—and their guests: Odd Thomas, the young fry cook who sees the dead and tries to help them, and Annamaria, his inscrutably charming traveling companion. Fresh from a harrowing clash with lethal adversaries, they welcome their host’s hospitality. But Odd’s extraordinary eye for the uncanny detects disturbing secrets that could make Roseland more hell than haven.
Soon enough the house serves up a taste of its terrors, as Odd begins to unravel the darkest mystery of his curious career. What consequences await those who confront evil at its most profound? Odd only knows.

"The 5th Odd Thomas book. Odd finds himself in a place with strange happenings and once again Odd has to deal with them. I liked this book. It was a combination of sci-fi and horror but not so much that you would classify it in either genre. Odd is a likable character and you root for him to succeed. There are also bits of humor that will make you smile. Also, the cameo from a real life person was a nice touch and I am looking forward how this plays out. This is one of the better Odd Thomas books but it can be a stand alone also."
