The Jackson women, Indiana and Amanda, have always had each other. Yet, while their bond is strong, mother and daughter are as different as night and day. Indiana, a beautiful holistic healer, is a free-spirited bohemian. Long divorced from Amanda’s father, she’s reluctant to settle down with either of the men who want her—Alan, the wealthy scion of one of San Francisco’s elite families, and Ryan, an enigmatic, scarred former Navy SEAL.

While her mom looks for the good in people, Amanda is fascinated by the dark side of human nature, like her father, the SFPD’s Deputy Chief of Homicide. Brilliant and introverted, the MIT-bound high school senior is a natural-born sleuth addicted to crime novels and Ripper, the online mystery game she plays with her beloved grandfather and friends around the world.

When a string of strange murders occurs across the city, Amanda plunges into her own investigation, discovering, before the police do, that the deaths may be connected. But the case becomes all too personal when Indiana suddenly vanishes. Could her mother’s disappearance be linked to the serial killer? Now, with her mother’s life on the line, the young detective must solve the most complex mystery she’s ever faced before it’s too late.

5.0 El juego de Ripper
Cuando leí el título pensé que sería una de esas historias donde imitan a Jack The Ripper... pero luego vi el autor (en este caso autora) y me dije a mí misma 'Isabel Allende no haría algo tan ordinario como eso'.

4.0 Ripper - Isabel Allende
Don't read it for the mystery, read it for the things which make an Allende novel so rich and satisfying: a large, diverse cast with complex backstories and complicated relationships. Solving the mystery is the driver of the plot, but it isn't compelling in the way that Amanda's relationship with he...

1.0 Ripper
I was really looking forward to Ripper. I like Isabelle Allende and enjoyed Maya's Notebook. Ripper is supposed to be her first foray int o the Thriller genre. Well, it never got thrilling for me. I was bored to tears and by the middle of the book, I decided it was never going to get better. Th...

4.0 Ripper
This is a crime novel, but still undeniably and wonderfully Isabel Allende. It's a great story, but lots of time is spent in filling out the characters fully, which usually doesn't happen in the average crime novel. But the book is all the better for it.
