When I selected the books for this little project, the decision whether or not to include a thriller on the list was a tough one. As recent events have shown, however, sometimes humans are far more monstrous than any supernatural creature could ever be. Tonight, we started reading Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes, the author of Zoo City and The Shining Girls.
From the back cover:
SHE’S NEVER HUNTED A KILLER AS DEADLY
Something strange is happening in Detroit. Hybrid bodies are turning up, half-animal, half-human. For Detective Gabi Versado, they are the work of a twisted monster who surpasses even ‘Murder City’s’ most brutal criminals.
AND HE’S ONLY JUST BEGUN…
For failed artist Clayton Broom, they are his greatest work. Life destroyed his dreams, so now he’s found new ones. The question is, can Gabi find him before the person she loves most is drawn into his nightmare?
