Review by adpaton
This manga-style graphic novel features Odd Thomas as a 19-year-old fry cook, working in a pancake parlour, and is apparently the prequel to the later books in the Odd Thomas series.Nothing to qwrite home about but a decent enough story, with pistol-packing girlfriend Stormy [who suffered a traumatic past at the hands of sadistic foster parents] helping Thomas and the police chief gusard Cindy, a girl Stormy has known since their orphanage days together. Cindy, a housekeeper, is being stalked but the police do not take her seriously until she is a few minutes late for work one day and the little boy in her care is found stabbed to death. A pleasant - well, given all the murders pleasant is probablyy not the right word- but unimpressive read.
