Brother Odd


Koontz publishes Brother Odd, the third installment of the Odd Thomas series. Seven months after Forever Odd, Thomas finds himself at the monastery in an attempt to find peace. However, a monk goes missing and Thomas must use his special ability to find him and prevent a foreseen disaster.

Before writing Brother Odd, bioethicist Wesley Smith tells Koontz that through Odd Thomas, he is writing the life of a Saint. Koontz initially denies this, then after beginning the writing of Brother Odd, he has a realization:

I sat at the screen and called Wesley…I remember I had originally denied it and had to tell him he was right.
