Brother Odd ~ Dean Koontz
This is the third book in the Odd Thomas series. Odd Thomas is a young man (only 21) who can see spirits. He says the dead never talk, but he usually figures out how to help them on to the other side even without them speaking. One of the spirits that Odd encounters most often is Elvis. Elvis does not haunt a particular place, but seems attached to Odd, and is one of the few ghosts who freely interacts with Odd. Odd has has some troubling and disturbing events occur in his life in the last 18 months, and has recently retreated to a monastery in the Sierra Nevada Mountains to try to find some peace. Unfortunately, the monastery is not as peaceful as Odd would have hoped, but Odd manages to make it through and move on to the next challenge.
