Scary as hell and hypnotic. I couldnt put it down...Id grab it if I were you. —Stephen King
A criminal mastermind creates violent tableaus in abandoned Detroit warehouses in Lauren Beukess new genre-bending novel of suspense.
Detective Gabriella Versado has seen a lot of bodies. But this one is unique even by Detroits standards: half boy, half deer, somehow fused together. As stranger and more disturbing bodies are discovered, how can the city hold on to a reality that is already tearing at its seams?
If youre Detective Versados geeky teenage daughter, Layla, you commence a dangerous flirtation with a potential predator online. If youre desperate freelance journalist Jonno, you do whatever it takes to get the exclusive on a horrific story. If youre Thomas Keen, known on the street as TK, youll do what you can to keep your homeless family safe—and find the monster who is possessed by the dream of violently remaking the world.
If Lauren Beukess internationally bestselling The Shining Girls was a time-jumping thrill ride through the past, her Broken Monsters is a genre-redefining thriller about broken cities, broken dreams, and broken people trying to put themselves back together again.
