An instant #1 New York Times Bestseller in its very first week! Presented by James Patterson's 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 #1 New York Times bestselling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.
Staff pick by Adriana: 
Stalking Jack the Ripper is a fun murder mystery set in 1800's London, inspired by the infamous Jack the Ripper, with feminist undertones and a great romantic subplot. Despite her privileged, sheltered upbringing, our main character, Audrey, abandons the social and gender norms of the times to study forensic medicine under her uncle's tutelage. As brutally murdered corpses continue to arrive at their laboratory, Audrey sets out to investigate this potential serial killer, which might hit closer to home than she would've imagined.
