Publisher's Summary

There was no warning. No chance to escape. They came suddenly. Naked. Bloodthirsty. Sadistic. They descended upon the Pine Village Apartment Complex, relentlessly torturing and killing anyone they could find.
Fearing for their lives, the residents of the complex must band together. A young trans woman, a suicidal middle-aged writer, a lonely Vietnam vet, a newlywed couple, an elderly widow, a single mother and her son, two on-the-run criminals, and the serial killer known as The Exit. Eleven strangers. The only thing they have in common is the unstoppable horde that wants to kill them. If they are to make it through the night, they must fight back.

Keene in fine form & Williamson is sublime

If you're a fan of apocalyptic horror in the vein of 28 Days Later, this book will not disappoint. Keene is great at creating fully fleshed out characters that you easily become invested in, which is all the more devastating when they come to a gory end. Chet Williamson, a fine horror scribe in his own right, is stupendous in his narration. Changing cadence and tone to portray characters as varied as a single mom & her son, an older Italian widow & her cat, a black Vietnam vet, a transgender woman and even a serial killer convinced his crimes are protecting the Earth from inter dimensional horrors. A must for Keene fans and a great introduction to those unfamiliar with his works.

Intense and Action Packed

This book moves fast! It does a great job with pacing if you're someone who likes action packed pages. it rarely slows down. The narrator isn't my favorite but does a decent job.

A good listen

I went into this not knowing much about it. All I really knew was that it was loosely inspired by Brian Keene’s former home.
So, I went into this book pretty blind and wasn’t disappointed. Keene gives us a broad range of characters each with their own depth and motivations.
There’s not a complicated storyline, it’s pretty simply about what the characters would do when thrown into the chaos of the events in the story.
Definitely worth checking out.

For readers who like the purge!

What did you like most about The Complex?

A fast paced, exciting and scary story it was filled with emphatic characters. Plenty of action, plenty of horror.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Complex?

I can't tell because it strays into spoiler territory. I liked the horror aspects.

Have you listened to any of Chet Williamson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This was the first time. He suited the material very well. It was an enjoyable, competent narration.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to it in two days at work. It's short but good.

Any additional comments?

My first Brian Keene experience. He's got game. The book was hardcore, felt like a purge film.
