Summary
"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

Summary
In 1931, Harper Curtis discovers a time travel portal located in an otherwise undistinguished Chicago bungalow. Written on the walls of the house are the names of "shining girls" whose bright young lives he must extinguish. Thus does Curtis become a time-traveling serial killer, singling out his victims by giving them small gifts and then returning, years later, to eviscerate them. However, not everything goes as planned during his multi-decade murder spree. One victim, Kirby Mazrachi, survives his attack and, with the help of a journalist, begins to investigate her mysterious assailant. - Description by Gillian Speace
