Publisher's Summary

On the banks of the river Thames a new building is being completed. A stunning creation of glass and concrete that will be a new landmark on London's skyline. The only problem is that people are dying because of it. Dozens of mysterious accidents have claimed lives during the construction of the Crystal Tower.
The owner, an enigmatic Russian businessman, has links to the site reaching back to the 1930s. Is he hiding a dark secret of unstoppable force and malevolence, created by one of his ancestors?
Something evil has been reawakened and no one can stop it.
Born and brought up in Hertfordshire, Shaun Hutson now lives and writes in Buckinghamshire where he has lived since 1986. He has since written over 30 bestselling novels as well as writing for radio, magazines and television.
Shaun has also written exclusively for the Internet, a short story entitled Red Stuff and an interactive story, Savages.
Having made his name as a horror author with bestsellers such as Spawn, Errbus, Relics and Death Day (acquiring the nicknames 'The Godfather of Gore' and 'The Shakespeare of Gore' in the process) he has since produced a number of very dark urban thrillers such as Lucy's Child, Stolen Angels, White Ghost and Purity.
At one time, Shaun Hutson was published under no fewer than six pseudonyms , writing everything from Westerns to non-fiction.

Nice to have you back on form Mr Hutson!

I have read every book that Shaun Hutwon has read and just recently, in my opionion, I thought he had gone down hill a little. The Hammer Books (although i'm sure he was happy with them), didnt really do it for me.
BUT I am pleased to say that this was just brilliant! Back on form and sounding great! Monolith is a great tale of horror that I had come to expect from Hutson books and I would happily read more from him like this.
Great listen!

Disappointing

Predictable story line with some really unlikely day to day occurrences. Characters that were uninteresting, and honestly wish the lift had got them all in the first half hour then I would not have had to listen to the ridiculous accents the reader experimented with especially towards the end where the Russian/Eastern European accent was a mix of the meercats from the insurance advert and 'allo allo' French ! What an awful reader and what a poor story from a usually good author.
