Die dunkelste Nacht des Lebens beginnt Odd Thomas ist ein bescheidener, freundlicher Grillkoch mit besonderen Gaben. Wie von einer unsichtbaren Kraft gezogen, gelangt er in ein scheinbar beschauliches Küstendorf. Hier sucht ihn ein ständig wiederkehrender Alptraum heim: Ein blutrotes Meer verschlingt alles Lebendige. Doch zunächst sind es Menschen, die ihm nach dem Leben trachten – gnadenlos und unendlich böse. Odd Thomas hat seine Freundin bei einem grausamen Attentat verloren, sein bester Freund wurde entführt, und selbst in einem verlassenen Kloster suchte ihn das Böse heim. Die ruhigen Zeiten, da er noch als zufriedener Grillkoch lebte, der manchmal den Toten helfen konnte, scheinen für immer vorbei zu sein. Wieder zerrt eine übermenschliche Kraft an ihm, und als er ihr folgt, landet er in einem kleinen, scheinbar ruhigen kalifornischen Küstenort. Schon kurz nach seiner Ankunft quält ihn ein Alptraum: Eine blutrote, apokalyptische Flut vernichtet alles Lebende. Bei einem Abendspaziergang auf dem Pier überkommt ihn eine ähnliche Vision – und schon kurz darauf bricht das reale Grauen aus. Drei finstere Gestalten machen gnadenlos Jagd auf ihn. Ein Großteil der Bevölkerung und der Polizeichef stecken offensichtlich mit ihnen unter einer Decke. Und ihr Ziel ist keinesfalls der Tod nur eines einzelnen Mannes. Sie haben Millionen von Opfern im Visier.

Scott nimmt rasend schnell ab. Sein korpulentes Aussehen ändert sich trotzdem nicht. Und noch unheimlicher: Wenn er auf die Waage steigt, zeigt sie jeweils das gleiche Gewicht an, egal wie viel er momentan trägt, ob Kleidung oder gar Hanteln. Scott hat Angst, dass man ihn zum medizinischen Versuchskaninchen macht. Aber er muss es jemand erzählen. Zu Dr. Ellis hat er Vertrauen, aber auch der weiß keinen Rat. In seiner netten Wohngegend in der Kleinstadt Castle Rock gerät Scott in einen eskalierenden Kleinkrieg. Der Hund der neuen Nachbarn – zwei Lesben – verrichtet sein Geschäft ständig bei ihm im Vorgarten. Die eine Frau ist eigentlich recht freundlich, die andere aber eiskalt. Die beiden haben gerade ein Restaurant eröffnet, von dem sie sich viel erhoffen. Die Einwohner von Castle Rock wollen aber nichts mit Homopaaren zu tun haben, da ist großer Ärger vorprogrammiert. Als Scott endlich kapiert, was Vorurteile in einer Gemeinschaft anrichten, überwindet er den eigenen Groll und tut sich mit den beiden zusammen. Merkwürdige Allianzen, der jährliche Stadtlauf und Scotts mysteriöses Leiden fördern bei sich und anderen eine Menschlichkeit zutage, die zuvor unter einer herzlosen Bequemlichkeit vergraben lag.
