The Shining Girls

"It's not my fault. It's yours. You shouldn't shine. You shouldn't make me do this."
The girl who wouldn't die
Kirby is lucky she survived the attack. She is sure there were other victims were less fortunate, but the evidence she finds is... impossible.
Hunting a killer who should't exist.
Harper stalks his shining girls through the years - and cuts the spark out of them. But what if the one that go away came back for him?

Zitat
Praise for The Shining Girls: 'I'm all over it' Gillian Flynn (author of GONE GIRL) 'A powerful thriller - imaginative, disturbing, complex, tense ... compelling reading' The Times 'A dark tale, told inventively and full of surprises ... Keep the lights on' Daily Mail 'Disturbing & smart & beautifully written' Erin Morgenstern (author of THE NIGHT CIRCUS) 'If you've got a GONE GIRL shaped hole in your life, try this' Evening Standard 'Clever story, smart prose' Stephen King 'Very smart, wholly original, completely kick-ass' William Gibson 'Brilliant ... fabulously-realised characters ... THE SHINING GIRLS is a finely organised, ingenious triumph' Independent 'Brilliant ... It should be the book of the summer' Observer 'Engrossing as it is original, as rewarding as it is challenging ... Superb ... A beautifully layered work of fiction ... It becomes so much more, part social history, part sociopath ... the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Take the time to read this, it's mesmerizing' Sun 'An idea Stephen King probably wishes he'd thought of ... Beukes can certainly shine herself' Sunday Times 'An ingenious and imaginative thriller ... compulsively readable' Sunday Mirror 'Beukes has enormous fun with the concept ... an entertaining novel that will be read with keen attention' Guardian 'Confidently written ... this dark tale is told inventively and is full of surprises. Keep the lights on' Daily Mail 'A killer of a novel ... a brilliant, mess-with-your-mind conclusion' Marie Claire 'A glorious creation' Granta '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 Humans) 'The Shining Girls is enthralling, dazzlingly inventive, and superbly executed. A huge accomplishment' Deon Meyer (author of Seven Days and Trackers) 'A tremendous work of suspense fiction... a mind-melting, heart-pounding mashup that delivers on its promise' Cory Doctorow
