Stalking Jack The Ripper By: Kerri Maniscaico/Book Review

Synopsis:

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!

The year was 1888 and there’s a killer on the loose and Audrey Wadsworth along with Thomas will stop at nothing to find out who Jack The Ripper was, and why is he only targeting women. Her father terrified to let her leave the house alone. Her brother Nathaniel organizing a group to also track down the ripper. Will Audrey be one of his victims? or is she safe? As they follow clues and stalk people themselves to see if they can uncover who the ripper is! Only to realize that the Zipper is closer to them then they think!

Overview:

Although there was some raw and disturbing details in this book. I did enjoy the suspense this storyline had. As well as Audrey strong character and courage.

Potentially Offensive Content:

There was a lot of detailed description about the inside of bodies that make me squeamish. Some violent scenes of what they did with the body parts.

Pros:

Since this book is based in 1888, it is written in modern-day language which I really enjoyed about this book. Each chapter mentions a date and location in which the chapter is taking place along with pictures.

Quotes:

I will have blood, they say, blood will have blood!

                                     William Shakespeare

From Hell.

I send you half the kidney I took from one women and preserved it for you. I fried and ate it was very nice. I may send you the bloody knife that took it out if you only wait a while long!

Signed:

Catch me when you can

Final Thoughs:

I’m giving this book a four star. This story had me guessing who is Jack The Ripper? Will they ever catch him? it was a page turning for me. When I though I had it figured out something else who happen and I became a detective myself in my own mind. I enjoyed the love interest the playing hard to get. Why was Thomas so secretive? But the plot twist at the end had my mind swirling I did not see that coming at all! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a mystery, weird love story, and some squeamish.
