The fifth Odd Thomas thriller from the master storyteller. Odd finds refuge at a rundown mansion, but soon discovers a frightening presence.
ODD THOMAS SEES DEAD PEOPLE...
They cannot speak to him nor do him harm; but still, it's unnerving, living between two worlds, standing against our darkest fears.
Just off California's Pacific Coast Highway stands Roseland: a mansion, protected by high walls. Odd finds refuge there, with the very pregnant, and very mysterious, Annamaria.
But the house contains terrible and bloody secrets. it is haunted by lingering spirits, and by nameless beats which lurk in the grounds, riding the shifting tides of time.
Lately, Odd has suffered dreams of doom and terror. Roseland has welcomed him in ... but will it ever let him leave?
