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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

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)

    "OMG SUCH A GEM"
    Where does Stalking Jack the Ripper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 10! The dialogue is amazing and the addition of James Patterson's expertise clearly shows and if you are knowledgeable of the Jack the Ripper story you will find many easter eggs here.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The performance was amazing, it made the story so much more enthralling.


    What does Nicola Barber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accents were impeccable and added so much flavor!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was all great

    Story
    "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.

    "nope"

    I wanted to like it, but whiney teenage romance ruined the plot. The main character was a grown man's fantasy of a teen girl. It was so disturbing I didn't make it past the 2nd chapter.

    "Excellent Mystery And Strong Female Lead!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book for all young women to read as teenagers. The main character of this book is a beautiful example of feminism and strength in a time where women were not seen as having worth beyond marriage. The storyline is fast enough to hold your attention and still detailed. I absolutely adored it


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I have long drives I have to go on and this book made me want to keep circling the block to finish it!

    "A little predictable, and long"

    same thing kept happening over and over and it never seemed like the author could pull me. I really wanted to like this book, but it just wasn't for me.

    "Something a little different"

    I enjoyed this book as a change of pace, and a quick simple follow. Good descriptions, fairly accurate along the lines of the actual Jack the Ripper cases, and overall well written. The more scientific/forensic explanations were cool. I would read the next one when it comes out.

    Story
    "For 12 year old women"

    This is written for young women, in their early teens. If you are not of that demographic, you may not find this novel engaging enough to finish. The narator, Nicola Barber is excellent though, and is a bright spot in this audible book.

    "Maybe I'm being too harsh"

    I'm not the intended target market for this story, however, YA fiction is one of my guilty pleasures if I can find those little gems which aren't overly throbbing with angsty hormones and ruining (for me) what otherwise could have been an enjoyable tale.

    This take on the 'Ripper' mystery we've all heard details of is nothing new and quite obvious from early on and I don't usually tend to mind grammatical inconsistencies but I find some of the very modern language used here to be one more reason to not love this book.

    The cast of characters were flat but some of them, especially the young apprentice Dr. Thomas and the almost just as young chief of police, to have a spark of something about them that might be potental to be great characters if developed.

    I've read worse but I wasn't excited by this and wish I'd used my credit elsewhere.
