In Odd We Trust by Dean Koontz and Queenie Chan

Most people of Pico Mundo, California know Odd Thomas as the fry cook from the Pico Mundo Grille who can whip up the world's best pancakes. Few residents know about his extraordinary supernatural ability that can best be described as the ability to see dead people.

When an innocent child is slain, police chief Wyatt Porter calls on Odd to help him track down the killer. The case becomes personal for Odd since the slain child's babysitter/housekeeper happens to be Sherry, his girlfriend's best friend. Now Stormy, Odd's girlfriend, and Odd are concerned that the killer is targeting another child Sherry watches. Can Odd's powers help him capture the killer before he strikes again?

Filled with moments of suspense and humor, I found this quick read to be thoroughly enjoyable. In Odd We Trust is a a prequel to and based on the full-length novel, Odd Thomas, by Dean Koontz. Be on the lookout for the the newest book in the Odd Thomas series, Odd Hours, that was just released this year.
