Finished Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco. I received a copy for review.
This is an incredibly creepy novel. It centers around Audrey Rose Wadsworth, a young girl fascinated with forensics. Unfortunately for her, it’s the 1880s and ladies are not supposed to have interests like that. (Especially ladies of her station.)
This is also the time of Jack the Ripper and Audrey Rose is doubly fascinated by him. Soon, she’s determined to figure out who he is…but of course he may be closer than she thinks.
My knowledge of Jack the Ripper is not particularly good (murdered prostitutes; never caught) so this book was really fun to read. (Also creepy and unsettling.) According to a postscript, there were some liberties taken but much is accurate.
If you like historical fiction, especially centered around fierce heroines, and serial killers this is for you.
