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 onto 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.Determined to bring her would-be killer to justice, Kirby joins the "Chicago Sun-Times" to work with the ex homicide reporter who covered her case, Dan Velasquez. Soon Kirby finds herself closing in on the impossible truth."The Shining Girls" is a masterful twist on the serial killer tale, a violent quantum leap featuring a memorable and appealing heroine in pursuit of a deadly criminal."
