Kill Monster

(2019)
A novel by

 
 
A golem created to assassinate a criminal in 1856 is reawakened in the present … intent on targeting his victim’s innocent descendants.

When treasure hunters excavate the long-lost wreck of the steamship Arcadia from a Kansas cornfield, a buried creature awakens – a mindless assassin of accursed earth, shaped like a man though in no way mortal, created to kill a slave trader in 1856.

With the original target long dead, the monster sets its sight on the man’s closest surviving descendant . . . a burned-out IT technician named Ben Middleton. Nothing could have prepared Ben for the horror now aimed directly at his lackadaisical life. But he isn’t only being chased by the monster, and it’s not just his own life in danger.

Praise for this book

"With heart, humor, genuine thrills, an intriguing premise, and a cinematic climax guaranteed to keep you turning pages, Kill Monster is the Sean Doolittle novel you've been waiting for. It's hardly my job to tell Simon Pegg what his next film project should be . . . but it should be this." - Victor Gischler

"Kill Monster is a yarn of magic and the mid-west, and it's as funny and wild as it sounds. For a long while now Sean Doolittle has been one of the best crime novelists working, and with Kill Monster he is making a serious bid to take over the fantasy field, as well." - Owen King

"This bold, ambitious, and wildly entertaining supernatural thriller is a true joy. Kill Monster hits on every cylinder, delivering action, suspense, thrills, and chills all with originality and wit, and in the midst of the excitement offering a father-son story of deep emotional resonance. A page-turning winner." - Michael Koryta
