Waiting on Wednesday: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

My TBR list is always growing and I thought it would be fun to share my anticipation for those books with all of you. This is not my own original meme; it belongs to Breaking the Spine. It specifically spotlights upcoming releases. As it implies in the title, I'll be posting this meme on Wednesdays. Please feel free to comment and let me know what books you guys are waiting on as well!



Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Published by Jimmy Patterson
Expected Publication Date: September 20, 2016
Pre-Order it: Amazon | B&N | Book Depository
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.
I was intrigued by this book from the moment I read the title of it on Goodreads. The history of Jack the Ripper is one that we've all heard but I'm interested in how that will be twisted into this new book. It sounds creepy and captivating and I can't wait to read it!

Reading the excerpt that was released along with the cover reveal only made me want to read Stalking Jack the Ripper more! The writing is emotive and makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end! See for yourself: Read the excerpt

Kerri Maniscalco grew up in a small town just outside of New York City where her love of the arts was fostered from an early age. In her spare time she reads everything she can get her hands on, cooks all kinds of food for her family and friends, and drinks entirely too much tea while discussing life’s finer points with her cats.
