Publisher's Summary

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 will make this dazzling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.


What the Critics Say

"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...." (Booklist)
"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 best-selling series Across the Universe)
"Kerri Maniscalco paints a picture of nineteenth-century London that lives and breathes in wonderfully sinister fashion. You won't want to put this book down." (Renee Ahdieh, author of the New York Times best seller The Wrath and the Dawn)

Why does everyone love this so much?

I will admit the actual plot pf this fantastic, it flowed really well and was a quick read. Now getting onto Audrey Rose. I am so tired of every ya book being "firey headstrong to the point of being illogical" female character falling wayyy to fast for a "hot arrogant jerk". I was super excited because I had heard she was really girly and liked pretty dresses, I thought it could be interesting. That being said this book did not hold up, if a female character is super girl how are you having her aunt scold her for dressing like a tomboy. Also having a character who is interested in basically being a medical examiner amd yet is almost squeamish and so sensitive about death came off as a joke. It especially came off as a joke when a boy taught her to look past this. If that's going to be character development why can't someone other than a love interest help her? That is so overdone.
