No one does a better job of evoking an eerie atmosphere than Koontz. This fourth chapter in the adventures of the totally unique Odd Thomas moves the action to a lonely beach community where an apocalypse is in the offing. Koontz's lyrical style envelops his story and Odd's first-person narration with an otherworldly vibe that's as mysterious as it is beautiful. As the ending clearly indicates, Odd's strange journey is just beginning!
After his most recent adventures, fry cook turned wanderer Odd Thomas expects to return home, but
Dreams of a devastating red tide haunt him, warning of dangerous events. Although pregnant Annamaria reveals nothing about herself, Odd instinctively knows he must protect her. To do that, he must unlock the deadly secrets of Magic Beach. (BANTAM, Jun., 352 pp., $27.00)
