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?
