The girl who wouldn’t die, hunting a killer who shouldn’t exist… A terrifying and original serial-killer thriller from award-winning author, Lauren Beukes. “It’s not my fault. It’s yours. You shouldn’t shine. You shouldn’t make me do this.”
Chicago 1931. Harper Curtis, a violent drifter, stumbles on a house with a secret as shocking as his own twisted nature – it opens onto other times. He uses it to stalk his carefully chosen 'shining girls' through the decades – and cut the spark out of them. He’s the perfect killer. Unstoppable. Untraceable. He thinks…
Chicago, 1992. They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Tell that to Kirby Mazrachi, whose life was shattered after a brutal attempt to murder her. Still struggling to find her attacker, her only ally is Dan, an ex-homicide reporter who covered her case and now might be falling in love with her. As Kirby investigates, she finds the other girls – the ones who didn’t make it. The evidence is … impossible. But for a girl who should be dead, impossible doesn’t mean it didn’t happen…
"Oh my … a glorious creation. So pleased to read a serial killer thriller that has such intelligence behind it. But what I was really thinking (along with reminding myself to BREATHE) was what a brilliant film it would be and how awesome the house was." (Granta)
"The Shining Girls is utterly original, beautifully written, and I must say, it creeped the holy bejasus out of me. This is something special" (Tana French, author of In the Woods & Broken Harbour)
"A new kind of thriller. A dark, relentless, time-twisting, page-turning murder story guaranteed to give you heart palpitations. It shines." (Matt Haig, author of The Radleys)
