Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Publication date: 2016
Publisher: JIMMY Patterson
Pages: 318
My rating: 3.5 stars

Audrey Rose is not the typical society woman. She's fascinated by her uncle's work in medicine and spends her spare time studying cadavers. But when women start being killed, Audrey Rose must use her skills to try to find the killer--and she's certain it's someone she knows.

I am strangely obsessed with Jack the Ripper. Almost 130 years ago, someone killed five prostitutes over the course of three months and no one knows who. Everyone has their theories, but we'll never know who did it. Stalking takes that mystery and introduces some theories of its own, in the guise of a gripping forensic thriller.

Audrey Rose is the perfect kind of heroine. She doesn't see why she can't be beautiful and smart; why a woman can't have love and a career. She has strengths and weaknesses, which is what creates an interesting character, male or female.

Maniscalco presents the evidence in such a way that keeps you going along with Audrey Rose, instead of being two steps ahead of her, which I personally find annoying and makes the main character seem stupid. A great debut novel, both for the author and the publisher.

There was no language and no sex.
