Waiting On Wednesday [@KerriManiscalco]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine



My pick for this week:


STALKING JACK THE RIPPER by Kerri Maniscalco

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.



published September 20th by Jimmy Patterson

Why?

I love historical fiction including historical fiction that gives us possibilities, no matter how fantastical or fictional, about unknown or unsolved past events/crimes. I also really like  historical fiction with female characters who lead their lives 'against society's expectations'/

I like the sound of this book's main character, the historical setting, the timing and that it's a 'Gothic horror'  mystery, as well.
