Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express


Firru . a dat nota:

I went very back and forth with this book. In the beginning, I absolutely adored the story but as it progressed, I frequently found myself loosing interest. Serial killers are a huge subject of fascination for me, so I was a little disappointed I didn't enjoy the story as much as everyone else. It's likely that my own expectations for the novel weren't fulfilled, which is why it wasn't a favorite. Despite all that, I did still enjoy it. It was fun and fairly entertaining. I think I just would have liked a more developed, in-depth story about investigating one of the most baffling unsolved murder cases in history.

Notă biografică

Kerri Maniscalco grew up in a semi-haunted house outside New York City, where her fascination with gothic settings began. In her spare time she reads everything she can get her hands on, cooks all kinds of food with her family and friends, and drinks entirely too much tea while discussing life's finer points with her cats. Stalking Jack the Ripper is her debut novel. It incorporates her love of forensic science and unsolved history.


Recenzii

"Dark and suspenseful...this book kept me guessing until its final, terrifying scenes."—Anna Carey, author of the EVE trilogy
"An entertaining debut full of twists and turns, perfect for fans of historical fiction and mystery."—School Library Journal
"Maniscalco has created a serious, sharp-minded, and forward-thinking protagonist in Audrey Rose, whose fearlessness will endear her to readers looking for an engaging historical thriller. Abundant red herrings and a dash of romance round out this gruesome but engrossing story."—Publisher's Weekly
"Audrey Rose Wadsworth prefers breeches to ball gowns, autopsies to afternoon tea, and scalpels to knitting needles. Though her father, Lord Edmund, has forbidden it, Audrey covertly studies forensic medicine...while "the Ripper" remains two steps ahead, lurking where Audrey least expects....Maniscalco's portrayal of scientific invention in a newly industrial era will serve as a fine first foray into Victorian classics."—Booklist
"*A marvelous yet somewhat gruesome mystery...The Ripper scenes are visceral, and the plot dovetails with history perfectly. An unexpected twist makes the ending worth the wait. A must-have."—School Library Journal, starred review
"Audrey is a young woman eager to use her brains and willing to flaunt society's rules....This mystery pays homage to classics like Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein [and] will satisfy those readers looking for historical mystery, a witty heroine, and a little romance."—School Library Connection
"This is a book that will keep you up at night and haunt you during the day."—Beth Revis, author of the New York Times bestselling series Across the Universe
"With ample knowledge of Ripper lore, Maniscalco creates a steadfast and headstrong heroine who is as comfortable in gloves of blood as she is in watered silk. Filled with plenty of gory details, and no shortage of possible suspects, Stalking Jack the Ripper conveys the panic, paranoia, and fascination of 1880s London with a madman on the loose."—Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood and Three Dark Crowns
"Dark and suspenseful...this book kept me guessing until its final, terrifying scenes."—Anna Carey, author of the EVE trilogy
