The Shining Girls

386 pages; Mulholland
Beukes's new novel features the greatest time-traveling serial killer. I'm a fan of hers from her work in graphic novels, especially a series I loved called Fairest: The Hidden Kingdom, in which Rapunzel travels to Tokyo to resolve a mystery from her past. This author's got an intriguing style of dealing with slightly surreal things in very real ways. I'm all over it.
