Odd Thomas Series by Dean Koontz is a frighteningly brilliant mystery novel series. The series started in 2003 with the 1st book Odd Thomas and ended in 2015 with the 7th book Saint Odd. The chilling story in the series is built around a fascinating character of Odd Thomas. He has psychic ability and he can see the spirits of the dead, although he is unable to talk to them. A situation that complicates much of the books.
