The Shining Girls, a serial killer time-travel story by Lauren Beukes, is being called a summer must-read and has just been snapped up by LeonardoDiCaprio's production company; a TV series could be the result.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

The novel tells the story of a serial killer named Harper Curtis who discovers a house in Depression-era Chicago that allows him to time travel through the decades. To keep traveling, he must kill “shining girls,” girls burning bright with talent and potential.
