Summary
Drifter Harper Curtis finds a house that allows him to travel through time, and, using the house, he stalks and murders ‘shining girls’, women with potential, throughout the next 60 years. When one victim survives the attack, however, his plans begin to come undone. Smart, strong survivor Kirby Mazrachi, determined to find and stop the killer, teams up with a newspaper reporter to track him down.
Critique
Part mystery, part sci-fi, this novel mashes up genres to create a fast-read, albeit with thinly drawn characters and a bit of a gimmicky feel.
