Goodreads Summary
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.

Why I'm waiting:
  • I was lucky enough to win an ARC of this, from Kerri, and devoured it straight away. It was the perfect mix of scary, and thriller, and intrigue - sheer perfection.
  • I'm a member of the Knights of Whitechapel street team, so keep an eye out for all of our posts, reviews, etc. Mine will be out next week :)
