Easily the second best of the (so far) 4-novel Odd Thomas series. Second only to the original Odd Thomas book.
It had lingering dead, famous spirits (although not enough Frank, IMHO), drama, tension, loss, and unanswered questions. Everything that made the first one great, minus the predictability of the 3rd novel, [book:Brother Odd].
HIGHLY recommended to Dean Koontz and Odd Thomas fans.
