Stalking Jack the Ripper

Image result for stalking jack the ripperI just finished reading Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco yesterday on my break at work! It was so good!

I was intrigued until the very end! The ending totally shocked me. I wasn’t expecting it! Usually I can predict the endings of books but not this one!

I definitely recommend it! It’s set in the 1880s in London in the Whitechapel area during the terror of Jack the Ripper.

I give it 5 stars! I immediately spent the rest of my break buying the second book in the series, Hunting Prince Dracula.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS

A #1 New York Times Bestseller! By Kerri Maniscalco 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.

Synopsis:

In this New York Times bestselling sequel to Kerri Maniscalco’s haunting #1 debut Stalking Jack the Ripper, bizarre murders are discovered in the castle of Prince Vlad the Impaler, otherwise known as Dracula. Could it be a copycat killer…or has the depraved prince been brought back to life?

Following the grief and horror of her discovery of Jack the Ripper’s true identity, Audrey Rose Wadsworth has no choice but to flee London and its memories. Together with the arrogant yet charming Thomas Cresswell, she journeys to the dark heart of Romania, home to one of Europe’s best schools of forensic medicine…and to another notorious killer, Vlad the Impaler, whose thirst for blood became legend.

But her life’s dream is soon tainted by blood-soaked discoveries in the halls of the school’s forbidding castle, and Audrey Rose is compelled to investigate the strangely familiar murders. What she finds brings all her terrifying fears to life once again.

I can’t wait to get started!
