9781478930105: Broken Monsters

"Scary as hell and hypnotic. I couldn't put it down...I'd grab it if I were you." --Stephen King

A criminal mastermind creates violent tableaus in abandoned Detroit warehouses in Lauren Beukes's new genre-bending novel of suspense.
Detective Gabriella Versado has seen a lot of bodies. But this one is unique even by Detroit's 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 you're Detective Versado's geeky teenage daughter, Layla, you commence a dangerous flirtation with a potential predator online. If you're desperate freelance journalist Jonno, you do whatever it takes to get the exclusive on a horrific story. If you're Thomas Keen, known on the street as TK, you'll 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 Beukes's 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.

About the Author:

Lauren Beukes writes novels, comics and screeplays. She's the author of the critically-acclaimed international best-seller, The Shining Girls, about a time traveling serial killer, Zoo City, a phantasmagorical Joburg noir which won the 2011 Arthur C Clarke Award, the neo political thriller, Moxyland. She worked as a journalist and as show runner on one of the South Africa's biggest animated TV shows, directed an award-winning documentary and wrote the New York Times best-selling graphic novel, Fairest: The Hidden Kingdom. She lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

Review:

"With Broken Monsters, the wildly talented Lauren Beukes has created a darkly majestic jewel of a novel, surpassing even The Shining Girls (no mean feat). Part harrowing thriller, part urban-Grimm's fairytale, but always filled with a deeply affecting humanity, Broken Monsters is the kind of book you'll find yourself pressing into the hands of everyone you know so they can experience it too."―Megan Abbott, author of The Fever and Dare Me

"Broken Monsters is a show-stopping story of a city trying to rise from its own ashes, its inhabitants struggling with their own demons, and monster working to shape the world to match his most disturbing visions. It's beautiful, horrifying, thrilling, and most impressive of all, possessed of a deep and remarkable compassion. I wish I'd written it."―Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street

PRAISE FOR LAUREN BEUKES:

"Lauren Beukes has got an intriguing style of dealing with slightly surreal things in very real ways. I'm all over it."―Gillian Flynn, O: The Oprah Magazine

"Lauren Beukes is so profusely talented--capable of wit, darkness, and emotion on a single page--that a blockbuster seems inevitable."―Charles Finch, USA Today

PRAISE FOR THE SHINING GIRLS:
"Wildly inventive"―Entertainment Weekly

"Expertly chilling"―San Francisco Chronicle

"Astonishing"―Time

"A triumph"―Alan Cheuse, National Public Radio

"One of the scariest and best-written thrillers of the year"―Chicago Sun-Times
