Waiting on Wednesday (56)



"Waiting on" Wednesday" is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases.





 
September 20, 2016
FROM GOODREADS: 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, augmented with real, sinister period photos, will make this dazzling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.


WHY I'M WAITING: I am pretty much obsessed with fictional books based on Jack the Ripper so when I saw this it was a no-brainer.  Plus, I really am loving that cover.

What are you waiting for this week?

  7. Haha I love this because I too am always interested when I see books about Jack the Ripper, and I hadn't realized so many other people were too! I don't normally go for non-SFF books, but this one does sound good, and I love the cover too!
