Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper #1)-Book Review

40727470._SY475_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.

I always knew I have to read this trilogy. When I first time opened the book, the first image captured my unwavering attention. Life is been moving fast and in many directions from the last few months and it will take a few more months to come back to normal. I finally found time to read it, recently.

“Roses have both petals and thorns, my dark flower. You needn’t believe something weak because it appears delicate. Show the world your bravery.”

It is that kind of genre which I didn’t know, I need in my life. Historical+ Mystery+ Romance, What was there to not like?. Audrey Rose who isn’t a proper lady according to society interest and love forensic. Thomas Creswell, a fellow who doesn’t like to follow manners. Both met each other when a serial killer started to murder prostitutes in such a brutal manner.

“Fear is a hungry beast. The more you feed it, the more it grows.”

I loved the writing. The story is perfect blend of everything, It is really appreciatable how author merged so many elements in a perfect manner. Twists and turns were brilliant. Story building transported me to old London.

I just didn’t get the point, how Audrey and Thomas were communicating, Maybe I missed something.

“Wield your assets like a blade, Cousin. No man has invented a corset for our brains. Let them think they rule the world. It’s a queen who sits on that throne. Never forget that.”

  4. I absolutely love this series. I find that Audrey Rose’s and Thomas’ banter is a bit confusing at first, but it makes more sense in the next book.

      1. I feel like their banter becomes more romantic in the next book because they understand each other a lot better now. I’ve only read the first two books, but I’m excited to read the rest of the series.
