Broken MonstersBook - 2014
In the city that's become a symbol for the death of the American dream, a nightmare killer is unravelling reality. A terrifying new thriller from Lauren Beukes, award-winning author of The Shining Girls. Detective Gabriella Versado is used to dealing with ugly murders. This is Detroit, after all. But the corpses turning up in abandoned buildings are unlike any she's seen before: queasy mash-ups of animals and humans, like some DIY taxidermied freak show. After her teen daughter Layla finds photographs of the bodies on her computer and leaks them to a blogger friend and thus the whole of the Internet, Gabi finds herself fighting to stay on the case she's compromised - and to save her relationship with her daughter. But as the murders seize the imagination of the populace with copycat killings and disturbing 'art installations' appearing overnight, Detective Versado has to hunt down and confront a killer who has let loose the seething subconscious of the city.
