Chicago, 1931. Harper is a man out of time – yet with all the time in the world to stalk and kill his ‘shining girls’. The objects he lays by their violated bodies are more than just clues: they are the glittering threads of his obsession, a web of sick satisfaction glowing through the years.
But these things have to be right. And if a girl lived to tell the tale, well, that would have to be fixed.
Chicago, 1992. Kirby knows there’s something strange about the man who nearly killed her – aside from being a violent psychopath. Rejected by those who should help her, she searches for the others, the girls who didn’t make it.
What Kirby finds is … impossible. Murders scattered across the decades, accompanied by totally contradictory evidence. But for a girl who should be dead, impossible doesn’t mean it didn’t happen … []

I'm usually the first one to pick up a thriller/crime novel but recently my interest has shifted to other genres, so instead of letting it gathering dust, I'm passing the book on to someone who has it on their wishlist. Enjoy!

Again thank you for sharing this book as a RABCK! I’ve enjoyed the majority of Richard &Judy books I’ve read so far so looking forward to this one.

Enjoyed this book once I got my head around the shifting timelines!

Lauren Beukes is a South African so the next stop for this book will be with the winner of the authors from unusual countries sweepstakes.

I agree, the shifting timelines were a bit confusing specially at the start. But once I got into it, I just kept right on until the end.

what a surprise to find a bundle of books waiting for me at the post office :)

thankyou so much for choosing this celestial title for me - initially all i saw was 'the shining' and it looks like much like stephen king's 'the shining' - it looks like it could be an interesting read - though i am somewhat confused with all the research notes, is it all fiction, or fiction based on fact... reading it shall tell me i guess :)

happy reading
