The girl who wouldn't die hunts the killer who shouldn't exist."The future is not as loud as war, but it is relentless.

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.

display_description "A time-traveling serial killer 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 until, in 1989, one of his victims, Kirby Mazrachi, survives and starts hunting him back. Working with an ex-homicide reporter who is falling for her, Kirby has to unravel an impossible mystery"--Publisher's web site.
