Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco 

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco; 318 pages

Summary: 

Audrey Rose Wadsworth is fascinated by death. Her uncle runs a class on forensic medicine that he allows her to attend in disguise. It is the 1830s after all, and a woman interested in anything other than manners and propriety would be unheard of. But when someone begins brutally murdering women, Audrey Rose can’t help but to get involved. 

My thoughts: 

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. The beginning was slightly gross with all the autopsy descriptions and then it moved into this weird love story over the corpses of Jack the Ripper’s victims … It was weird but I liked it. The focus of the book was Audrey Rose and her love of the sciences and one Thomas Cresswell. 

I kinda wish there would have been more of a focus on Jack the Ripper though. I was hoping it would go more into what he did but he is still a mystery to the world. This book made me want to look into a true crime book about him though. 

All in all, I liked the storyline, I liked the characters, but what earned it a 5 star rating was the end! On my goodness the ending …. I totally did not see it coming. It made the book so much better in my opinion. 

I’m really looking for the next book in the series to come out.
