|Back Cover / Inside Flap:||"St. Bartholomew's Abbey sits in majestic solitude amid the wild peaks of California's High Sierra, a haven for children otherwise abandoned and a sanctuary for those seeking insight. Odd Thomas has come here to learn to live fully again, and among the eccentric monks, their other guests, and the nuns and young students of the attached convent school, he has begun to find his way. The silent spirits of the dead who visited him in his earlier life are mercifully absent, save for the bell-ringing Brother Constantine and Odd's steady companion, the King of Rock 'n' Roll.|
|Review:||I think this third installation of Odd Thomas is just as good as the first. Dean Koontz hits hard with an intriguing setting and a more intriguing story line. Although deep characterizations do not occur in this (or any) Odd Thomas novel, the characters as they are presented are entirely authentic and true to real life.|
