    Great conceit and suspenseful

    This book was pitched to me as one with a time-travelling serial killer, and that was enough for me. Harper is creepy, Kirby is a determined protagonist, and the magical safe house is fascinating to contemplate. I thought the execution of this book was a little mediocre, but the conceit makes up for it.

    4.5 stars! The premise is terrific and well-executed with a quick-paced plot. The writing itself is also well done. The murders are graphic without being gratuitous or sentimental. I can definitely see this book being turned into a successful TV show.

    This was an excellent but difficult read. I found the premise to be fascinating but unlike Stephen King's 11/22/63 (similar premise -- a place tied to a time travel nexis) which seemed to flow naturally, this story bounced around a lot and was sometimes difficult to follow. Sometimes I was caught up more in the story of the other victims, rather than Kirby, who somehow manages to unravel the mystery of The shining girls.

    A major talent

    A significant step forward from her last book...there is no question about this writer's talent...an exciting thriller with lots to say about violence towards women from a well researched historical perspective....the time travel plot device bothered this old fashioned reader at first but I now concede that it added an interesting dimension to the book... The violence is nasty like a James Lee Burke novel....congrats on a job well done

    An incredible novel by a supremely talented writer. The plot is gripping, and the ease with which Beukes shifts between writing about a 1930's Chicago and a 1990's setting is impressive. This is a title which I have already recommended to everyone I know, and will continue to do so. Hopefully we will be seeing much more of Beukes' writing soon.
