The jaw-dropping, page-turning, critically-acclaimed book of the year: a serial-killer thriller unlike any other from the award-winning Lauren Beukes. ‘GONE GIRL has not exactly gone. But THE SHINING GIRLS have arrived’ (The Times). “It’s not my fault. It’s yours. You shouldn’t shine. You shouldn’t make me do this.” THE GIRL WHO WOULDN’T DIE Kirby is lucky she survived the attack. She is sure there were other victims were less fortunate, but the evidence she finds is …impossible. HUNTING A KILLER WHO SHOULDN’T EXIST Harper stalks his shining girls through the years – and cuts the spark out of them. But what if the one that got away came back for him?
She won the 2011 Arthur C Clarke Award for her novel Zoo City, set in a
fantastical Johannesburg where guilt manifests as spirit animal familiars. Her
previous works include Moxyland, a dystopian cyberpunk thriller set in Cape
Town under corporate apartheid.
She helped create South Africa’s first half-hour animated TV show, URBO: The
Adventures of Pax Afrika, and has written kids animated shows for Disney
UK and Millimages in France.
