Description du produit
Revue de presse
"Combining historical fiction, romance, forensics, a feisty heroine, a swiftpaced plot, gobs of murders, and historical illustrations, Maniscalco pulls in the reader for a wonderfully bloody romantic romp."―Booklist
Praise for Stalking Jack the Ripper:
"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."
*"This audiobook has everything: a true-life tale that has intrigued readers for 100-plus years, a young woman who balks at the constraints put upon women during the Victorian era, a marvelous yet somewhat gruesome mystery, and a narrator who brings you down into Spitalfields as Jack the Ripper earns his name. 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 --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition paperback.

But what I did enjoy was:
-The anticipation of finding out who Jack the Ripper was and I one point I was suspecting everyone including Nathaniel
-The closer I got to the end the more sure I was of who Jack was and I was right but it wasn’t annoying because of that plot twist at the end
-Thomas Cresswell’s humour and the banter between him and Audrey Rose
-Audrey’s relationship with her brother was (in my opinion) sweet how they looked out for each other
-As I’ve already said; the research put into writing this book
-The gothic pictures added to give more of an eerie sense but also really helped with imagining what was going on.
Those are all I can remember at the moment but I’m definitely sure there were many other things I enjoyed. I ordered the next book already and I’ve been told it’s better than the first so I can’t wait to get started on it!!
I have to say I enjoyed the second more than the first. Although I rated the first book at 5/5 stars I do recall moments where I felt the book slowed down and did drag slightly. With the sequel, however, this wasn’t an issue, I was gripped throughout, the background to the story was perfect for the murderous mystery unfolding, it was the perfect form of horror for me.
Audrey Rose has to be one of my favourite fictional characters, she’s strong, fearless and not afraid to stand up to those who try to treat her as though she is unworthy or incapable based purely on her gender (which is quite common with the book being set in 1888) she stands out in a way which is admirable in characters, and despite the growing feelings between herself and another character, she continues to put her own needs first, pushing romance to the back to ensure she succeeds in what she wants.
Thomas was as flirty and funny as he always was, I liked the tension between him and Audrey Rose as, despite his attitude otherwise, it shows that underneath he is a true gentleman. I liked how they were both in sync at times, and rather than Thomas attempting to take control and ‘save’ her. I liked how he truly understood her feelings towards forensic medicine and the troubles she regularly goes through while battling to prove that she is just as good as the men around her.
I enjoyed the twist in the reveal, I was concerned that after the first book, the second would struggle with keeping people in the dark with the big reveal, but it did not disappoint. Despite the frustration in trying to work out who it was, I loved the surprise that came with the reveal. I can only hope that the series continues to be as surprising since my expectations on what will happen to keep rising as I finish each book.
Overall this book was incredible.
I struggle to recall sequels that live up to the first book in a series, but this one builds on STALKING JACK THE RIPPER perfectly. Kerri Maniscalo's writing is witty, evocative, and downright eerie at times.
This book had everything that I love: a clever plot, swoon-inducing moments, nail-biting tension, humour, and did I mention the SWOON?!
I love love love Audrey Rose so much. I swoon so hard for Thomas Cresswell. The wait for book 3 will be sheer torture, but I've no doubt it will be worth the torturous wait.
Though I wouldn't classify this as a thriller it definitely kept me up at night after reading... spiders "shiver". Thoroughly unputdownable and I will be reading the 3rd instalment as soon as it is released.
I really recommend this book and by extension the series.
