Book 1, Stalking Jack the Ripper

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A #1 New York Times Bestseller!
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, #1 New York Times bestselling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 13, 2016 – Maniscalco's debut isn't for the squeamish: it starts with 17-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth deeply immersed in opening up and analyzing a corpse under the supervision of her Uncle Jonathan, with no detail or scalpel cut spared. Audrey Rose is a proper Victorian with the unladylike aspirations of understanding crime scenes, blood spatter, the brutality of murder, and exactly how a killer tears into his victim. Luckily for her, Jack the Ripper is on the hunt, and Audrey Rose alongside Thomas, a handsome aspiring coroner is determined to catch him. In taking on the subject of this famous 19th-century serial killer, Maniscalco is treading well-worn fictional territory, but she has created a serious, sharp-minded, and forward-thinking protagonist in Audrey Rose, whose fearlessness in the face of the decaying and the dead while still navigating the social norms of the day 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. Ages 15 up.

Customer Reviews


This book actually had me screaming things such as, “NO WAY!” and, “OH MY GOD!” the whole entire time! The ending is definitely the best part of the book. It’s obvious how much I enjoyed this book, seeing as I finished the whole thing in less than 24 hours! However, I think I’m actually in love with Thomas Cresswell, hahaha!

Stalking Jack The Ripper

This was an amazing book! Definitely worth five stars. The characters were well developed, and Jack wasn't obvious, but still plausible. I loved the historical information the book incorporated while at the same time the story had its own fictitious plot.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!!

I am not usually a fan of historic fiction however I devoured this book within hour of buying it. I strongly recommend this book, especially with such a cheap price!
