Dean Koontz apparently has three books about this character, though I have only read one. I finished reading it about ten minutes ago. Happy Catholic recommended it. The style of writing is excellent and it is a good book… Sad endings, though, are not my favorite.
This was a good enough book that I would recommend it anyway, though I decided after reading the first few pages not to gift my dad with a copy. Dead girl in the first part would not float his boat at all.
I bought the first two in the series in paperback, but it seems a hardback of the three is available. That would have been cheaper, if I had known.
Odd Thomas is the book I just finished reading.
