Lots of things happening for Odd Thomas, aside from this latest novel, featuring a showdown between our hero and the bad guys in a moody, tumble-down mansion. An e-novella called Odd Interlude will be released in weekly installments leading up to publication of this book, the fifth in the series. The first four books will be reissued in a shiny new trade paperback format in May. And the sixth book, Deeply Odd, is promised sometime after the projected fall release of a film based on the series. Time to get Odd again; these books are always No. 1 New York Times best sellers.

The woman astride the ghostly stallion reaches out desperately, the latest spirit to enlist the aid of Odd Thomas, the unassuming young fry cook whose gift--or curse--it is to see the shades of the restless dead, and to help them when he can.
