Book III of Odd Thomas. Odd Thomas, a charismatic young man with a sense for the otherworldly is in self-imposed exile.  The tragic events that took the love of his life have led him from his sun-drowned desert home to the remote monastery in the icy High Sierra. And where Odd Thomas goes, so does strangeness.  He is befriended by a white dog named Boo – and the ghost of Elvis. And a world famous physicist is conducting experiments in the catacombs of the abbey.  Is this why Odd can once again see bodachs, shadowy harbingers of violence.  They prowl the halls, suggesting terror to come.  But what form will it take, and how can Odd defeat an enemy that eclipses any he has met before?
