Presented by James Patterson’s new children’s imprint, this deliciously creepy horror novel has a storyline inspired by the Ripper murders and an unexpected, blood-chilling conclusion…
Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.
Against her stern father’s wishes and society’s expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle’s laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.
The story’s shocking twists and turns, augmented with real, sinister period photos, will make this dazzling, #1 New York Times bestselling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.
Wow, this book was amazing.
I adore the setting of this book. Set in grungy London 1888 – we follow the grisly and disturbing murders committed by Jack the Ripper. As Audrey Rose starts to investigate the deaths she finds out pretty quickly that nothing is as it seems. The best part of this book is the ending. The intrigue and mystery of this book lead up to an epic, amazing plot twisted ending!
Audrey Rose is a great protagonist. She is a strong, willful, independent lady. Maniscalco uses the time period and its setbacks, to highlight Audrey Rose’s strength.
I have read the first 2 books in the series and I adore it so far. It is very dark and gruesome so if you get nightmares as easily as I do – don’t read this at night.
Happy Reading !
