Summary
In 1931, Harper Curtis discovers a time travel portal located in an otherwise undistinguished Chicago bungalow. Written on the walls of the house are the names of "shining girls" whose bright young lives he must extinguish. Thus does Curtis become a time-traveling serial killer, singling out his victims by giving them small gifts and then returning, years later, to eviscerate them. However, not everything goes as planned during his multi-decade murder spree. One victim, Kirby Mazrachi, survives his attack and, with the help of a journalist, begins to investigate her mysterious assailant. - Description by Gillian Speace
