Saint Odd

By Dean Koontz

In this conclusion to the Odd Thomas series (Book 7), Odd has returned to his hometown of Pico Mundo, California. He senses an upcoming apocalypse, but (as customary for his sixth-sense) doesn't know when or where or by whom. He is led by his sense of doom to the evil-doers who attempt to throw Odd off of their trail through false leads. He is drawn to the Carnival that has come to Pico Mundo; it hasn't returned to town since Odd was sixteen and went with his sweetheart, Stormy.

Odd maintains his quirky sense of humor and his loyalty to his friends and neighbors throughout this book as he has done throughout the series.

I don't want to spoil the ending for those of you who have followed the series, but suffice it to say that gypsy mummy's fortune given to Odd & his true love, Stormy, comes true.

I love the audiobook version of this series with David Aaron Baker as the reader. His voice is a perfect match for the whimsy of the Odd Thomas character.
