Forbidden Planet are delighted to welcome back LAUREN BEUKES, reading from and signing her latest novel BROKEN MONSTERS at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Tuesday, 12th August, 2014 from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.
A detective facing the most harrowing case of her career. A failed artist with a bizarre new well of creativity. A child discovering the grim realities of adult desire. A writer walking a dangerous path to online fame. A city on the edge of ruin. Brought together by a killer opening doors into the dark heart of humanity… Detective Gabi Versado no longer believes in justice. She’s seen too much stupidity, corruption and just plain badness. But never anything like this. And now it’s bleeding into her life. Detroit is the decaying corpse of the American Dream. Motor-city. Murder-city. Now a killer with the touch of an artist is turning it into the worst kind of nightmare
