Detective Gabriella Versado has seen a lot of bodies. But this one is unique even by Detroit's standards: half boy, half deer, somehow fused together. As stranger and more disturbing bodies are discovered, how can the city hold on to a reality that is already tearing at its seams? If you're Detective Versado's geeky teenage daughter, Layla, you commence a dangerous flirtation with a potential predator online. If you're desperate freelance journalist Jonno, you do whatever it takes to get the exclusive on a horrific story.
Very not scary

Fascinating Final Twist
Majority of the book is a very realistic crime thriller with believable and interesting characters. It does start a little slowly for my tastes.
The final act of the book is very tense and takes a fascinating turn. I'd compare it to Neil Gaiman's novel American Gods.
