How do you make sure a crime that hasn’t happened yet, never does? That’s the question facing Odd Thomas, a prophetic dreamer who is able to commune with restless spirits of the dead. This time, it’s the living who need Odd on their side. When he encounters a truck driver and sees an image of a masked man in a blood-red suit harming children, he’s convinced what he glimpsed is a vision of a tragedy to come. Odd embarks on an interstate game of cat and mouse in bestseller Koontz’s sixth paranormal crime novel in his series (after Odd Interlude, 2013).
