Dean Koontz Synopses: In Demon Seed, a computer with astounding artificial intelligence and a capability of violence becomes interested in criminal acts.

In Hideaway, a man suffers a bad car accident and now shares visions with a psychopathic killer.

By the Light of the Moon is the story of an artist, his autistic brother and a stand-up comedian who has visions who only have 24-hours to find out who is after them.

    I can not find the book In Odd We Trust in the list of books. Is In Odd We Trust part of the Odd Series?
    Thank you.


    • Graeme: 1 year ago

      Hi Melody – that is a graphic novel and listed under the “Odd Thomas Graphic Novels” series listing above. Chronologically I believe it takes place before the first Odd Thomas novel


  2. Anne Thomson: 1 year ago

    Great help and now realise I’m missing quite a few books. Thought I had most but quite a few slipped through the cracks unfortunately. Think too little lifetime left to catch up with them all.
    Would love to know if Dean ever intends to finish the trilogy Moonlight Bay. Bought the first but resisted reading them until I had the third. Don’t want to start and then be left out on a limb wondering how it finishes
