Launch of The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes

Friday, April 19th 2013 at 5:30 PM

Shining Girls Invitation for Book Lounge

A girl who wouldn’t die, hunting a killer who shouldn’t exist. A thriller that breaks all the boundaries.

The Time Traveler’s Wife meets The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in this story of a time-traveling serial killer who is impossible to trace–until one of his victims survives.

In Depression-era Chicago, Harper Curtis finds a key to a house that opens on to other times. But it comes at a cost. He has to kill the shining girls: bright young women, burning with potential. He stalks them through their lives across different eras, leaving anachronistic clues on their bodies, until, in 1989, one of his victims, Kirby Mazrachi, survives and starts hunting him back.
