Overview

Odd Interlude, Dean Koontz’s New York Times bestselling three-part digital series—now in one volume for the first time
 
THERE’S ROOM AT THE INN. BUT YOU MIGHT NOT GET OUT.
 
Nestled on a lonely stretch along the Pacific coast, quaint roadside outpost Harmony Corner offers everything a weary traveler needs—a cozy diner, a handy service station, a cluster of cottages . . . and the Harmony family homestead presiding over it all. But when Odd Thomas and company stop to spend the night, they discover that there’s more to this secluded haven than meets the eye—and that between life and death, there is something more frightening than either.
 
Includes a preview of the next novel in the Odd Thomas series: Deeply Odd!
 
“[Odd Thomas is] one of the most remarkable and appealing characters in current fiction.”—The Virginian-Pilot
 
“An inventive . . . mix of suspense, whimsy and uplift.”—The Washington Post
 
“Odd Thomas is the greatest character Dean Koontz has ever created. He’s funny, humble, immensely likable, courageous, and just a joy to read about.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer
 
“Koontz gives [Odd Thomas] wit, good humor, a familiarity with the dark side of humanity—and moral outrage.”—USA Today
