Could there really be such a thing as hell on earth? Odd only knows. #1 New York Times bestselling maestro of macabre suspense Dean Koontz plunges everyone’s favorite spirit-spotting fry cook into his most frightening encounter yet, in the thrill-packed third Odd Thomas graphic novel.
Transforming a ramshackle mansion into a dream house has become a nightmare for onetime Hollywood producer Nedra Nolan, whose newly purchased fixer-upper in Pico Mundo has sent a string of spooked contractors scurrying off the job, claiming the place is haunted. Who’s she gonna call? Her friend recommends Odd Thomas, the mild-mannered young man with a gift for communing with ghosts who won’t rest in peace. With his soul mate and sidekick, Stormy Llewellyn, in tow, Odd agrees to investigate the eerie incidents. But his spirit-seeking style is cramped by the obnoxious TV ghost hunters Nedra hires to flush out the troublesome phantoms with elaborate gadgets.
As night falls and a raging storm traps them all in the mazelike manse, Odd tries in vain to scare up some lost souls. But instead, something more terrifying than any apparition—something with flesh, blood, and teeth—makes its sinister presence known. And with nowhere to hide, Odd and his fellow hunters suddenly become the prey.

This is the third volume of Dean Koontz graphic novels. See my reviews of the prior two in which I discuss Dean Koontz books generally, as well as Odd Thomas and these graphic novels. This is the first time that Landry Q. Walker worked with Dean Koontz on the series. It is a much better story and has more humor than the prior two volumes.
Odd Thomas' friend asks him to help a movie producer who bought a house that seems to be haunted. However she feels that Odd and his pistol-packing girl friend Stoney Llewellen are just amateurs and unable to help her, even though, as we know, Odd has the ability to see the dead. She hires a team of three ghost-busters, three fakes, who perform nonsensical acts that add to the story's humor. Both adults and youngsters will enjoy this book and, hopefully, be inspired to read Koontz's full novels.
I love all the "Odd" books. I own all of them on the Kindle and in hardback. Dean Koontz, always comes up with great story lines for this character. It is wonderful to have such a "Good" character. I can't hardly wait for the next book.
good fun read... highly recommended. Great illustrations and fun storyline in keeping with Koontz's Odd series. Love the concept and would like to see and read more.
