Dean Koontz - Queenie Chan - In ​Odd We Trust
Meet ​a young man named Odd... who helps the dead get even. From the infinite imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz comes the suspenseful graphic novel debut of a natural-born hero with a supernatural twist. Odd Thomas is regular 19-year-old with an unusual gift: the ability to see the lingering spirits of the dead. To Odd, it’s not such a big deal. And most folks in sleepy Pico Mundo, California, are much more interested in the irresistible pancakes Odd whips up at the local diner. Still, communicating with the dead can be useful. Because while some spirits only want a little company. . .others want justice. When the sad specter of a very frightened boy finds its way to him, Odd vows to root out the evil suddenly infecting the sunny streets of Pico Mundo. But even with his exceptional ability—plus the local police and his pistol-packing girlfriend, Stormy, backing him – is Odd any match for a faceless stalker who’s always a step ahead. . .and determined to kill again?

Dean Koontz - Odd ​Thomas
"The ​dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn. Maybe he has a gift, maybe it's a curse, Odd has never been sure, but he tries to do his best by the silent souls who seek him out. Sometimes they want justice, and Odd's otherworldly tips to Pico Mundo's sympathetic police chief, Wyatt Porter, can solve a crime. Occasionally they can prevent one. But this time it's different. A mysterious man comes to town with a voracious appetite, a filing cabinet stuffed with information on the world's worst killers, and a pack of hyena-like shades following him wherever he goes. Who the man is and what he wants, not even Odd's deceased informants can tell him. His most ominous clue is a page ripped from a day-by-day calendar for August 15. Today is August 14. In less than twenty-four hours, Pico Mundo will awaken to a day of catastrophe. As evil coils under the searing desert sun, Odd travels through the shifting prisms of his world, struggling to avert a looming cataclysm with the aid of his soul mate and an unlikely community of allies that includes the King of Rock 'n' Roll. His account of two shattering days when past and present, fate and destiny converge is the stuff of our worst nightmares-and a testament by which to live: sanely if not safely, with courage, humor, and a full heart that even in the darkness must persevere.

Dean Koontz - Phantoms
CLOSER… They ​found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California. AND CLOSER… At first they thought it was the work of a maniac. Or terrorists. Or toxic contamination. Or a bizarre new disease. AND CLOSER… But then they found the truth. And they saw it in the flesh. And it was worse than anything any of them had ever imagined…

At twenty-two, Bibi Blair’s doctors tell her that she’s dying. Two days later, she’s impossibly cured.

Searching for Ashley Bell, ricocheting through a southern California landscape that proves strange and malevolent in the extreme, Bibi is plunged into a world of crime and conspiracy, following a trail of mysteries that become more sinister and tangled with every twisting turn.

Dean Koontz - Forever ​Odd
In ​a battle to come, there can be no innocent bystanders… Odd Thomas never asked to communicate with the dead – they sought him out in Pico Mundo, the small desert town he calls home. He has already suffered one life-changing tragedy, and wants a normal year more than anything. But for Odd, ‘normal’ is never easy. When a childhood friend goes missing, everybody fears the worst. As Odd applies his unique talents to tracking down Danny, he discovers something far worse than a dead body. Because out in the wastelands beyond his sleepy hometown, something is waiting for him. Evil personified has come to call upon this desert community of souls both living and dead – and only Odd Thomas stands between us and our worst nightmares…

Dean Koontz - Mr. ​Murder (angol)
Martin ​Stillwater has a vivid imagination. It charms his loving wife, delights his two little daughters, and gives him all the inspiration he needs to write his highly successful mystery novels.

A stranger breaks into his house, accusing Martin of stealing his wife, his children—and his life. Claiming to be the real Martin Stillwater, the intruder threatens to take what is rightfully his.

Dean Koontz - Odd ​Apocalypse
_Odd ​Thomas sees dead people..._ They cannot speak to him nor do him harm; but still, it's unnerving, living between two worlds, facing our darkest fears. Just off California's Pacific Coast Highway stands Roseland: a mansion, protected by high walls. Odd finds refuge there, with the very pregnant, and very mysterious, Annamaria. But the house contains terrible and bloody secrets. It is haunted by lingering spirits, and by nameless beasts which lurk in the grounds, riding the shifting tides of time. Lately, Odd has suffered dreams of doom and terror. Roseland has welcomed him in; but will it ever let him leave?

Dean Koontz - Deeply ​Odd
_The ​pistol appeared in his hand the way a dove appears in the hand of a good magician, as if it materialized out of thin air. “You think I won’t do it right here in the open. But you’d be surprised. . . . You’ll drop before you get the breath to scream.”_ The truck driver is decked out like a rhinestone cowboy, only instead of a guitar he’s slinging a gun—and Odd Thomas is on the wrong end of the barrel. Though he narrowly dodges a bullet, Odd can’t outrun the shocking vision burned into his mind . . . or the destiny that will drive him into a harrowing showdown with absolute evil. DEEPLY ODD How do you make sure a crime that hasn’t happened yet, never does? That’s the critical question facing Odd Thomas, the young man with a unique ability to commune with restless spirits and help them find justice and peace. But this time, it’s the living who desperately need Odd on their side. Three helpless innocents will be brutally executed unless Odd can intervene in time. Who the potential victims are and where they can be found remain a mystery. The only thing Odd knows for sure is who the killer will be: the homicidal stranger who tried to shoot him dead in a small-town parking lot. With the ghost of Alfred Hitchcock riding shotgun and a network of unlikely allies providing help along the way, Odd embarks on an interstate game of cat and mouse with his sinister quarry. He will soon learn that his adversary possesses abilities that may surpass his own and operates in service to infinitely more formidable foes, with murder a mere prelude to much deeper designs. Traveling across a landscape haunted by portents of impending catastrophe, Odd will do what he must and go where his path leads him, drawing ever closer to the dark heart of his long journey—and, perhaps, to the bright light beyond.

Dean Koontz - The ​Taking
In ​1975, the now defunct Laser Books issued Invasion by Aaron Wolfe, aka Koontz (who later expanded that novel into Winter Moon, 1994), a breakneck tale of alien invasion centered on an isolated farm. Koontz's new novel also concerns alien invasion, and a comparison of the two books offers insight into the evolution of this megaselling author's work. Invasion was mostly speed and suspense—a brilliant if superficial exercise in terror. The new novel also features abundant suspense, as a couple in an isolated California home endure a phosphorescent rain and learn that, around the world, something is attacking humans and laying waste to communications. It's only when they drive to a nearby town that they learn of a global alien invasion; the tension ratchets as a weird fog descends and the aliens not only manifest physically but animate the dead. For years, however, Koontz has aimed at more than just thrills; today he is a novelist of metaphysics and moral reflection. His aliens are inherently evil as well as scary; standing against them are the human capacity for hope and the forces of goodness and innocence (here, as elsewhere, embodied in dogs), and near novel's end Koontz puts an overtly religious spin on his tale. Koontz's language has changed over the years, too, and not always for the better. While his care with words engenders admiration, his love of metaphor and alliteration can slow down the reading ("the luminous nature of the torrents that tinseled the forest and silvered the ground"). Also missing here is the wonderful humor that elevated his last novel, Odd Thomas, and some other recent work. Koontz remains one of the most fascinating of contemporary popular novelists, and this stands as an important effort, but not his best, though its sincerity and passion can't be denied.

Dean Koontz - A ​halott város
A ​kétszáz éves géniusz, a világuralomra törő Victor Frankenstein meghalt és elpusztultak rabszolgái is. Ám ő erre az eshetőségre is számított: a halála pillanatában életre kelt a klónja, aki folytatja a megkezdett munkát. Egy montanai kisváros mellett, egy elhagyatott hidegháborús telephelyen megteremti replikánsait, amelyek közkatonaként fognak harcolni a háborújában, majd létrehozza azokat a nanomutánsokat, amelyek őrült terve szerint fel fogják zabálni a világot. A magát a Teremtő ellenpólusának képzelő tudós sötét szándékairól csak kevesen tudnak, és még kevesebben tehetnek kísérletet arra, hogy megállítsák. Csak Frankenstein legelső, misztikus lénnyé változott teremtménye, egy klónozott nő, egy biológiai kísérlet melléktermékeként létrejött zseni, egy autista kisfiú, egy fegyvermániás szekta hívői és két tapasztalt zsaru állnak a pusztulás útjába. Vajon van a világnak jövője, ha csak ez a kis csapat száll szembe Victor Frankensteinnel?

Dean Koontz - Innocence

Dean Koontz - Sötét ​zóna

Ami feltárul előtte, minden képzeletet felülmúl, így Jane Hawk lassan úgy érzi: ő az Egyesült Államok legjobban keresett szökevénye. És nem is téved nagyot... Dean Koontz, a misztikus thriller egyik legismertebb írója a Jane Hawk-sorozattal újra a legnagyobbak közé emelkedett, és sokak szerint felülmúlja régi, klasszikus önmagát is.

A közvélemény szerint ő nem lehet bűnös. Vagy mégis? Halley gyanújának igazolására olyan nyomozásba kezd, amelynek során elvesztheti a barátját - esetleg az életét is. Henry Denker: Orvos a vádlottak padján Kate Forrester egész életében orvos akart lenni, és a vidéki kisvárosból eljutott a legnagyobb New Yorki kórházba. De egész jövője veszélyben forog, amikor egyik fiatal betege - egy gátlástalan milliomos lánya - rejtélyes körülmények között meghal. Kórházi munkatársai elfordulnak tőle, így Kate nem számíthat másra, csak egy fiatal, különc ügyvédre, akivel kölcsönösen kedvelik egymást. Dean Koontz: A jéghegy foglyai Miközben dr.

Elizabeth Webster: Gyere vissza, Johnnie! A fiatal Johnnie Cass nehéz helyzetben volt. Mostohaapja vad gyűlöletétől szevedett. És a fejében az állandó zúgás annyira zavarta, hogy szinte képtelen volt másokkal kapcsolatot teremteni. Egyetlen vigasza maradt, a rajzolás, formákkal és vonalakkal fejezte ki gondolatait. Aztán egy borzalmas esemény hatására Johnnie elmenekült otthonról, hogy megkeresse apját, akire szinte alig emlékezett, de benne volt a fiú minden reménye egy jobb jövőre.

Dean Koontz - Fred Van Lente - Odd ​is on Our Side
When ​things get scary, it’s nice to know that Odd is on our side. The one and only Odd Thomas is back—in his second edgy and enthralling graphic-novel adventure from #1 New York Times bestselling suspense master Dean Koontz. It’s Halloween in Pico Mundo, California, and there’s a whiff of something wicked in the autumn air. While the town prepares for its annual festivities, young fry cook Odd Thomas can’t shake the feeling that make-believe goblins and ghouls aren’t the only things on the prowl. And he should know, since he can see what others cannot: the spirits of the restless dead. But even his frequent visitor, the specter of Elvis Presley, can’t seem to point Odd in the right direction. With the help of his gun-toting girlfriend, Stormy, Odd is out to uncover the terrible truth. Is something sinister afoot in the remote barn guarded by devilish masked men? Has All Hallows Eve mischief taken a malevolent turn? Or is the pleading ghost of a trick-or-treater a frightening omen of doom?

Kevin J. Anderson - Dean Koontz - A ​tékozló fiú
Deucalion ​a rejtélyes, tetovált szemfényvesztő évszázadok óta járja a világot, miközben rettenetes titok nyomasztja. Nem anya szülte és nem is Isten teremtette, hanem egy ember, az őrült Frankenstein, akit mindenki mással együtt ő is rég halottnak hisz. A mai New Orleansben a régi lángok ismét fellobbannak, a hajdani rémtörténet alakjai ismét az élő emberek között mozognak. Nem csupán Frankenstein teremtménye maradt életben, de maga a tébolyult tudós is. Él, alkot, új terveket sző, és Victor Helios néven, a legmodernebb technikával teremti az Új Faj egyedeit, hogy velük váltsa valóra eddigi legeszelősebb tervét. Senki sem állíthatja meg Victort. Senki, talán csak egy cinikus nyomozónő, és a társa, valamint Frankenstein legelső teremtménye: a tékozló fiú. _A klasszikus regény szerzője, Mary Shelley beérte azzal, hogy megmutassa a világnak a legendát, Frankensteint és teremtményét. Talán nem is sejtette, hogy halhatatlan hősöket alkotott, olyan lényeket, akik évszázadokkal az ő halála után is élni fognak. Élni... A szó legszorosabb értelmében._

Dean Koontz - Elkárhozott ​lelkek
Az ​eszelős tudós, Victor Frankenstein valóban élt, és valóban létezett - még a 21. században is. Két évszázaddal azután, hogy létrehozta első teremtményét, a jelenkor Amerikájában folytatta munkáját, amelyet valójában sosem hagyott abba. A modern orvostudomány és a technika legújabb eredményeit felhasználva megteremtette replikánsait, akikkel helyettesíteni akarta az emberiséget. Úgy tűnt eleven gyilkológépeivel sikerült megkezdenie az emberi faj kiirtását, ám megjelent a színen valaki, akire nem számított. Legelső teremtménye Deucalion, két New Orleans-i rendőr és néhány rebellis replikáns segítségével elpusztította az őrült tudóst. Ám Victor Frankenstein erre a lehetõségre is felkészült. Abban a pillanatban, amikor megsemmisült a test, amelyet két évszázadon keresztül használt, egy bunker mélyén aktiválódott, életre kelt egy másik. Az eredeti tudós valamennyi tudásával, tapasztalatával és emlékével rendelkező klón elindul, és belekezd a B-terv végrehajtásába. A replikánsok új generációjához tartozó lények először egy montanai kisvárosban jelennek meg. Ők ugyan nem olyan szívósak, mint elődeik, de valamivel intelligensebbek, és van néhány segítőjük is, akiket szinte lehetetlen elpusztítani. Frankenstein megállíthatatlannak tűnik, és Deucalionon, valamint néhány régi barátján kívül még senki sem tud a veszélyről, amely most már nem csak az emberiséget, de az egész földi életet fenyegeti...

Dean Koontz - Élve ​és holtan
Az ​eszelős tudós, Victor Frankenstein nem csupán egy regény főszereplője volt: valóban létezett, és még mindig él. Két évszázaddal az után, hogy létrehozta első teremtményét, a jelenkor Amerikájában folytatja munkáját. A modern orvostudomány és a technika legújabb eszközeivel kitenyésztett replikánsokkal akarja lecserélni a valódi embereket. Victor Frankenstein terve tökéletes, csupán egyvalakit hagyott ki a számításból: legelső teremtményét, akit kétszáz évvel korábban, halott bűnözők teteméből állított össze. Ő Deucalion, aki misztikus képességei segítségével mindent elkövet, hogy megfékezze teremtőjét. Csupán két nyomozó segítségére számíthat, de Frankenstein néhány lázadó teremtménye is a kezére játszik. Frankenstein végzetét saját teremtményei okozzák, akiket még az sem érdekel, hogy vele együtt talán maguk is elpusztulhatnak. Úgy tűnik, a Természet rendet teremt. De vajon tényleg ilyen könnyű elpusztítani Victor Frankensteint?

Dean Koontz - 77 ​Shadow Street
I ​am the One, the all and the only. I live in the Pendleton as surely as I live everywhere. I am the Pendleton’s history and its destiny. The building is my place of conception, my monument, my killing ground. . . . The Pendleton stands on the summit of Shadow Hill at the highest point of an old heartland city, a Gilded Age palace built in the late 1800s as a tycoon’s dream home. Almost from the beginning, its grandeur has been scarred by episodes of madness, suicide, mass murder, and whispers of things far worse. But since its rechristening in the 1970s as a luxury apartment building, the Pendleton has been at peace. For its fortunate residents—among them a successful songwriter and her young son, a disgraced ex-senator, a widowed attorney, and a driven money manager—the Pendleton’s magnificent quarters are a sanctuary, its dark past all but forgotten. But now inexplicable shadows caper across walls, security cameras relay impossible images, phantom voices mutter in strange tongues, not-quite-human figures lurk in the basement, elevators plunge into unknown depths. With each passing hour, a terrifying certainty grows: Whatever drove the Pendleton’s past occupants to their unspeakable fates is at work again. Soon, all those within its boundaries will be engulfed by a dark tide from which few have escaped. Dean Koontz transcends all expectations as he takes readers on a gripping journey to a place where nightmare visions become real—and where a group of singular individuals hold the key to humanity’s destiny. Welcome to 77 Shadow Street.

Ed Gorman - Dean Koontz - Az ​éj városa
Mary ​Shelley legendás regényének alakjáról kiderült, hogy nem pusztán a képzelet szülötte. Victor Frankenstein, az őrült tudós életben maradt, és még mindig alkot - ezúttal New Orleans-ban. Zsenialitását és a modern kor tudományának eredményeit felhasználva kifejlesztette az Új Fajt.
