Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine which spotlights exciting up and coming releases.
My pick for this week:
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Release date: 20th September 2016
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 am I excited?
Stalking Jack the Ripper sounds so creepy, mysterious and wonderful – and just look at that cover!
I read an excerpt from it (read it here) when the cover was revealed and I think I’m hooked already. I can’t wait to get my hands on it this september! 😀
