Kerri Maniscalco creates an epic storyline following Audrey Rose Wadsworth trying to solve the case through the illegal use of science, science not being illegal but a woman being educated and smart. This is her debut novel with the last in series was just released this week. (of course I already bought my copy.and can’t wait for it to arrive)
The theme in this book, the Boundaries of society and socially acceptable behaviour being challenged and questioned, speaks to me as women so deeply. It is so important, especially today, to show how far we as women have come and how far we still have to go.
Beauty and Brains being both equally important to her love interest, Maniscalco writes an empowering version of this terrible historical event. Adding to this amazing plot twist and heinous suspense that will drive you to finish the book in one reading.
“Roses have both petals and thorns, my dark flower. You needn’t believe something weak because it appears delicate. Show the world your bravery.”Kerri Maniscalco, Stalking Jack the Ripper
This is not for the faint hearted, and includes historically accurate illustrations and photos of some of the scientifical acts, procedures, illnesses and equipment used during that time giving the story added authenticity that will bind to the page.
Trigger warning – blood, graphic descriptions, assault and violence.
He murdered women in cold blood. He terrorized an entire city. He taunted those of us who hunted him down. But despite all these horrors, in the end, I could not deny it…I was the girl who loved the Ripper.
Kerri has the ability to set a scene so eerie, you will have chills running down your spine as you imagine gossamer curtains caressing your cheek in a dingy little room waiting for death.
If you love crime and investigation shows or books, you will live for this.
