See the trailer for 'The Shining Girls' by Lauren Beukes -- EXCLUSIVE

Posted on

A grisly crime thriller meets sci-fi action meets historical fiction in a wildly inventive summer page-turner. The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes (out June 4) features a time-traveling serial killer — yep, you read that right — named Harper Curtis who targets shining girls, bright young women who possess some unnameable quality that makes them burn with potential. Kirby Mazrachi is the only shining girl who managed to escape Harper once he set his sights on her. To bring her almost-killer to justice, she joins the Chicago Sun-Times to work with the reporter who covered her case. You’ll have to wait a few more weeks to discover what she finds, but here’s the exclusive trailer for Shining Girls below:

Will you look at My Little Pony dolls the same ever again?
