Recension

Praise for Stalking Jack the Ripper:
A #1 New York Times Bestseller from its first week!

*A marvelous yet somewhat gruesome mystery...The Ripper scenes are visceral, and the plot dovetails with history perfectly. An unexpected twist makes the ending worth the wait. A must-have.--School Library Journal, starred review

An entertaining debut full of twists and turns, perfect for fans of historical fiction and mystery.--School Library Journal

Audrey is a young woman eager to use her brains and willing to flaunt society's rules....This mystery pays homage to classics like Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein [and] will satisfy those readers looking for historical mystery, a witty heroine, and a little romance.--School Library Connection

Audrey Rose Wadsworth prefers breeches to ball gowns, autopsies to afternoon tea, and scalpels to knitting needles. Though her father, Lord Edmund, has forbidden it, Audrey covertly studies forensic medicine...while the Ripper remains two steps ahead, lurking where Audrey least expects....Maniscalco's portrayal of scientific invention in a newly industrial era will serve as a fine first foray into Victorian classics.--Booklist

Dark and suspenseful...this book kept me guessing until its final, terrifying scenes.--Anna Carey, author of the EVE trilogy

Kerri Maniscalco paints a picture of nineteenth-century London that lives and breathes in wonderfully sinister fashion. You won't want to put this book down.--Renee Ahdieh, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Wrath and the Dawn

Maniscalco has created a serious, sharp-minded, and forward-thinking protagonist in Audrey Rose, whose fearlessness will endear her to readers looking for an engaging historical thriller. [A] gruesome but engrossing story.--Publisher's Weekly

This is a book that will keep you up at night and haunt you during the day.--Beth Revis, author of the New York Times bestselling series Across the Universe

With ample knowledge of Ripper lore, Maniscalco creates a steadfast and headstrong heroine who is as comfortable in gloves of blood as she is in watered silk. Filled with plenty of gory details, and no shortage of possible suspects, Stalking Jack the Ripper conveys the panic, paranoia, and fascination of 1880s London with a madman on the loose.--Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood and Three Dark Crowns

Om författaren

Kerri Maniscalco grew up in a semi-haunted house outside New York City, where her fascination with gothic settings began. In her spare time she reads everything she can get her hands on, cooks all kinds of food with her family and friends, and drinks entirely too much tea while discussing life's finer points with her cats. She is the author of the New York Times bestselling novels Stalking Jack the Ripper, Hunting Prince Dracula, and Escaping From Houdini.

5,0 av 5 stjärnor Dark and gripping, I never wanted it to end
Granskad i Storbritannien den 13 november 2016
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco is a dark, gripping story that I never wanted to end. Needless to say, I've been having trouble keeping on top of my TBR lately with university taking over my life and all, so I've been super picky with my reads lately. If something doesn't pull me in straight away, I set it aside to come back to sometime in the future when I have less essays to write and more time to read. That being said, it physically pained me to put down Stalking Jack the Ripper whenever I had to set it aside to get some work done. It was gripping from the very first page and even when I wasn't reading it, I couldn't stop thinking about it.

The story follows young Audrey Rose who secretly apprentices under her Uncle who's a mortician, despite her father's disapproval. In a time when girls were taught that the only place for them was the home and tea parties, Audrey is going against societal norms to pursue a gruesome side of science: cutting corpses open. She helps her Uncle conduct postmortems which is where she meets the arrogant but intelligent Thomas Cresswell aka the new love of my life. Imagine a young, extremely flirty Sherlock and you have Thomas. The Sherlock to Audrey's Watson. They make such a fantastic team and seeing them attempt to solve the Ripper's murders together, not to mention the angsty banter and both romantic and sexual tension that fills the air whenever they're in the same room. I ship them so hard. I could've done with a little more... intimacy though but I guess it was the Victorian era where it was improper to even be alone in a room with a guy, meh. (Edit: I just found out this is a trilogy so I'm 100% now okay with the slowburn).

Besides the characters, I have so many more things I loved about this book. The photos and the incorporation of things like an image of Jack the Ripper's letter added such authenticity to the story and made it even darker. I never knew when I'd be flipping a page only to find something gruesome staring back at me. Kerri takes something that most of us find grossly fascinating (I mean, that explains why the Ripper case is so infamous) and gives us a sense of closure. We get to go on this mysteriously dark and thrilling adventure and we actually get answers at the end. I found myself rushing to finish so I could confirm my suspicions but feeling utterly conflicted because I also didn't want it to end. As the victims started piling up and we were handed a bunch of suspects, I found myself pulling my Sherlock hat on, fully invested in the investigation.

One more thing I have to make very clear: I LOVE Audrey Rose. I really do. She has definitely joined my list of favourite MCs/protagonists, she's fiesty and stubborn and brave in a time that teaches girls they need to be the complete opposite. Even when her father threatens to toss her out onto the streets, she continues to pursue science and stands up to him - which is one of my favourite scenes in the book.

Overall, I think I've found a new favourite book. I guessed the culprit before the big reveal but that didn't matter a bit to me because I was doubting myself the entire time and the entire back story and plot was just magnificently done. I can't wait to read more books by Kerri Maniscalco and I just found out that this is a trilogy rather than a standalone so I can't wait!
