A deliciously creepy horror novel with a story line 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 #1 New York Times bestselling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.

Good attention paid to historical detail in the world-building, but a very modern teen voice and attitude, so if you're a stickler for perio...
This book hit on a lot of my favourite themes - Victorian London, a woman willing to risk her reputation to pursue a career she is passionate about, historical fiction and of course, a re-imagining of one of the most well-known unsolved murders of all time. What I liked about this book: the auth...
