Detective Gabi Versado has hunted down many monsters during her eight years in Homicide. She’s seen stupidity, corruption and just plain badness. But she’s never seen anything like this. Clayton Broom is a failed artist, and a broken man. Life destroyed his plans, so he’s found new dreams – of flesh and bone made disturbingly, beautifully real. Detroit is the decaying corpse of the American Dream. Motor-city. Murder-city.  And home to a killer who wants to make you whole again…

“Captivating…Broken Monsters defies the standard tropes of the serial killer genre to become a thoroughly modern supernatural thriller….Beukes plays with genre in a slippery but propulsive way, fusing together fantasy, crime fiction and a hint of social critique.”  — Los Angeles Times

“A genuinely unsettling—in all the best ways—blend of suspense and the supernatural makes this a serial-killer tale like you’ve never seen…Beukes gave us a time traveling serial killer in The Shining Girls, and the monsters in her latest tale, whether they’re real or imagined, will keep you up all night.” — Kirkus Reviews

“When Stephen King calls a book ‘scary as hell and hypnotic,’ don’t’ read it late at night in a tent in the woods….” — The Wall Street Journal
