    Harper Curtis is a killer who stepped out of the past. Kirby Mazrachi is the girl who was never meant to have a future. Kirby is the last shining girl, one of the bright young women, burning with potential, whose lives Harper is destined to snuff out after he stumbles on a House in Depression-era Chicago that opens on to other times. At the urging of the House, Harper inserts himself into the lives of the shining girls, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. He's the ultimate hunter, vanishing into another time after each murder, untraceable - until one of his victims survives.

    Susan says: "Wow, great, creepy thriller!"
    "Overrated"

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Shining Girls?

    This book was so hyped and I don't think it really succeeded on any level, except the performances of the readers.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lauren Beukes again?

    Probably not.


    What character would you cut from The Shining Girls?

    The "house" as perceived by Harper.


    Any additional comments?

    Neither the mystery nor the time travel elements really worked for me. It was ridiculously gory and this coming from someone who enjoys a good serial killer story.
