Publisher's Summary

The thrilling new horror from this best-selling author...
When one of his wife Grace's patients dies in unusual circumstances, stem-cell researcher Nathan suspects that someone else has been attempting the same experiments as him bringing mythical creatures to life only with much more success.
But then Grace herself is injured, and Nathan's life spirals into a nightmare as he is faced with an impossible dilemma: lose Grace forever, or breed more mythological beasts, at the cost of countless more human lives...


Audible Editor Reviews

British horror author Graham Masterton does not sacrifice emotional realism for the sake of scaring his readers - but scare them he does. In Basilisk, Nathan Underhill's medical research into mythological creatures is compromised by someone else's genetic engineering of a living basilisk. This horrible beast can kill with a single look, and it happens to be on the hunt for victims. Masterton's fiction is especially adapted to other dramatic media like television, movies (The Manitou, 1978), and audiobooks. But no need for a huge cast when bringing the pages to life: Performer Adam Sims imbues every character of this chilling novel with individuality.

waste of time

I kept listening because the reviews on Amazon were so good, hoping it will pick up at any minute. But boring and poorly written; and the decent narration did not make up for that.
