Waiting on Wednesday: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  My pick this week is one that just sounds really good!  One I wish I had an actual ARC of, but I am able to get an egalley if I have time for it.  Anyway, here is the blurb from Goodreads:

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.

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.


What do you think?  Does it sound like a fun read to you?  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  11. I have been seeing the cover around in quite a few places and this one intrigues me so much. I haven't seen any reviews of it around either, so that makes the mysterious side of this one even more appealing.
