    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.

    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.

    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.
