Date: September 2014

Duration: 13 hours 30 minutes


A criminal mastermind creates violent tableaus in abandoned Detroit warehouses in Lauren Beukes's 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.

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


  • Christina J.

    This was recommended by Stephan King! Definitely adding it to my book collection! This book did not disappoint!

  • Dante G.

    I found it to be truly unique and beautiful in its own right, but what I found to be most amazing about it was that it is actually terrifying.

  • Sarah Merriman

    Great book. Stephan King himself recommended it so, naturally, I had to listen. Definitely an exciting listen.

  • Martha Stephens

    A fun read until the last 20%. After that it feels a little clunky.
