A family drama set in the rural midwest of 1979. Influenced by Shakespeare's King Lear. The characters are far from lovable, and the read is dark. Well-written, but not comforting.  A Thousand Acres

The 8th and final book of the Odd Thomas series sees a closure to the story that is both tragic and hopeful, as is always the case with Dean Koontz.  Saint Odd

Don't start this book with your lunch or you might lose it! An assassin has a bit of trouble with a hit on a respected doctor. A journalist is in the right place at the right time and bumps into the doc's ex-wife. Together they try to figure out the who and why of the murder and discover a very complex scam that will give some bad people a lot of money. I would tell you more , but I don't want to give anything away! Very fast paced. Great characters and it's full of humor!
