Jack the Ripper is probably one of history’s most infamous serial killers. In 1888, he terrorized the people of London, specifically targeting women. Because of his notoriety, he’s often referenced in pop culture. Stalking Jack the Ripper is perhaps the latest incarnation to use him as inspiration.
This dark and twisted tale follows seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth, the daughter of a lord, born and raised in a life of wealth. But, despite her privilege, Audrey leads a forbidden 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 debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.
