The new supernatural thriller from New York Times bestselling author Peter Clines
You can still owe the dead.
Hector was the best of the best. A government operative who could bring armies to a halt and nations to their knees. But when his own country betrayed him, he dropped off the grid and picked up the first of many bottles.
Natalie can’t remember much of her life before her family brought her to the US, but she remembers the cages. And getting taken away to the Project with dozens of other young children to become part of their nightmarish experiments. That’s how she ended up with the ghost of a dead secret agent stuck in her head.
And Hector owes Natalie’s ghost a big favor.
Now Hector and Natalie are on the run from an army of killers sent to retrieve her. Because the people behind the Project are willing to risk almost anything to get Natalie back and complete their experiments.
“With The Broken Room, Peter Clines weaves a genre-crossing tapestry of compelling storytelling. Characters—living and dead—you care about, and plot twists you could never see coming. Absolutely brilliant!” —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-Wars and the Joe Ledger thrillers
“It’s rare to find this blend of pulse-pounding action and tremendous heart, but somehow Clines gives us a perfectly balanced narrative. Anchoring the twists and turns are the unlikeliest of duos, two lost souls you will find yourself falling in love with over and over again.” —Madeline Roux, author of the Asylum series
“A dark thriller with lovable characters, a dark mystery, and a blood-curdling horror element, The Broken Room delivers a fast-paced thriller with Peter Clines’s signature lovable characters and knack for Lovecraftian mystery.” —Craig DiLouie, author of The Children of Red Peak
“Peter Clines invented his own genre, and with every book he pushes it further than you can imagine. The Broken Room is at once brutally relentless, darkly unsettling, and strangely touching. This is a straight-shot pedal-down road trip with Elmore Leonard driving and Robert Aickman working the map. It's a cosmic horror John Wick.” —Robert Brockway, author of Carrier Wave and Rx: A Tale of Electronegativity
“The Broken Room is one of Clines’s best books and captures that same magic that made King, McCammon, and Koontz household names." —Stephen Blackmoore, bestselling author of the Eric Carter series
