What is the order of the books in the ODD THOMAS series?

Book 1: ODD THOMAS — Odd is a short-order cook in a small desert town, Pico Mundo, California. He leads an unusual life — the spirits of the lingering dead come to him for justice. He thinks of himself as an ordinary guy until 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.

Book 2: FOREVER ODD — When a childhood friend of Odd’s disappears, the worst is feared. But as Odd applies his unique talents to the task of finding the missing person, he discovers something worse than a dead body, encounters an enemy of exceptional cunning, and spirals into a vortex of terror.

Book 3: BROTHER ODD — Odd has retreated to a monastery, but trouble has a way of finding him. It slinks back onto his path in the form of the sinister bodachs he has met previously, the black shades who herald death and disaster, and who come late one December night to hover above the abbey’s most precious charges. For Odd is about to face an enemy who eclipses any he has yet encountered, as he embarks on a journey of mystery, wonder, and sheer suspense that surpasses all that has come before.

Book 4: ODD HOURS — In the latest Odd novel, Odd is haunted by dreams of an all-encompassing red tide, and is pulled inexorably to the sea, to a small California coastal town where nothing is as it seems. Now the forces arrayed against him have both official sanction and an infinitely more sinister authority…and in this dark night of the soul, dawn will come only after the most shattering revelations of all.

Also, you may be interested to know that a Manga novel based on Odd Thomas, IN ODD WE TRUST, published by Del Rey in May, 2008, is now available.
