A great story about a short-order cook who is able to communicate with the dead. They offer information for many different reasons. In this book, a recurring tragic nightmare is about to come true and Odd goes to the mat trying to prevent a horrible wrong from occurring in his town of Pico Mundo. In the process he receives help from girlfriend Stormy, a few dead souls and the local police chief. I haven’t read a Dean Koontz book in a long time and have forgotten how much I love his style of writing. He is truly capable of writing a light hearted horror story. Great, quick paced read.
