The Shining Girls

The Shining Girls

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2013 CWA GOLD DAGGER AWARD

Chicago, 1931. A strange house gives serial-killer Harper the power to travel through time; to hunt and kill his ‘shining girls’. They’re bright young women full of spark – until he cuts it out of them, leaving clues from different times behind to taunt fate. Kirby, the 90s girl, survives his attack and turns the hunt around. Tracing Harper’s bloody trail of victims – from a glowing dancer in the 30s to a tough welder in the 40s and a bombshell architect in the 50s – Kirby is running out of time trying to solve an impossible mystery. And Harper is heading towards her once again.

The Shining Girls doesn’t leave you with any easy answers, or neatly tied-up solutions, but it does leave you with the satisfaction of a truly great read.” 
- Karen Jeynes, Cape Times


“Vividly written and imaginatively conceived, Beukes succeeds in combining thriller and horror with the fantasy of time travel, writing a villain who is chillingly brutal and disarmingly evasive.” 
- Andrea Nagel, The Times

"This snappy supernatural thriller has got everyone talking… this summer’s answer to last year’s mega-hit Gone Girl."
- New York Post
