Chicago, 1931. A strange house gives serial-killer Harper the power to travel through time; to hunt and kill his ‘shining girls’. They’re bright young women full of spark, until he cuts it out of them, leaving clues from different times behind to taunt fate. Kirby, the 90s girl, survives his attack and turns the hunt around. Tracing Harper’s bloody trail of victims, from a glowing dancer in the 30s to a tough welder in the 40s and a bombshell architect in the 50s, Kirby is running out of time trying to solve an impossible mystery. And Harper is heading towards her once again. "The Shining Girls" has won the UJ Prize for original creative South African work and has been shortlisted for The Sunday Times Literary Awards.
