Necessary Monsters Volume 2: Murderbox

Daniel Goodbrey, Sean Azzopardi (Illustrator)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


There exists a world of horrors beneath the one we know. Where the creatures of our nightmares stalk amongst humanity and play their games of vengeance, murder and intrigue. To police this world there is The Chain; a covert agency of monsters and killers, charged with keeping the human herd from ever growing too thin.

But these are dangerous times to be an agent of The Chain. The artificial intelligence known as Murderbox has gone rogue, targeting The Chain’s best and brightest for elimination. Now agents Gravehouse, Creeping Tuesday, Charlotte Hatred and Cowboy 13 find themselves caught in the crosshairs of the psychotic AI.

The chase is on, as supernatural killers and international super-spies hunt each other through the shadows of a hidden Europe. In Geneva undead nuns loom on the wrong side of the mirror. In Budapest scarves of hungry teeth wrap tight around unwary necks. In Paris the ancient horrors of La Danse De La Mort circle, curtsy and prepare for slaughter. And at the heart of it all awaits a debonair killer with a brain made of light and a body made for murder.

Can anyone solve the mystery of the Muderbox before the final trap is sprung?
