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.
Holy crap, this book is REALLY good. Okay, confession time: I totally did not know who Jack the Ripper was before I even read this book. So stupid me thought that Jack was some hot guy in the book. Yeah, I know, you can stop laughing now. But anyway, then I walked past the Philosophy section at work (I work at Kinokuniya bookstore btw) and saw some thick book called “JACK THE RIPPER” and that’s when I realised that Jack the Ripper is someone that this book is based off. Hence I actually went to Google about it before reading this book and viola, I was super impressed and wanted to see how the author would actually fit this crazed murderer in her book.
So actually I was more excited to read the book after learning who Jack the Ripper is. The main character, Audrey Rose, was definitely one of the coolest character that has ever been written about. Amidst all the other girls in their gowns and stitching stuffffs, Audrey Rose is the one girl interested in dissecting dead bodies, and even though I don’t really like dead bodies, I still find like this book and this character.
The whole story plot was pretty fast, and the murder started way before we even realised that it was a murder, which was a good thing? I mean I wanted the book to be unexpected, instead of following the normal cliche way of introducing the story plot, this book started out of nowhere yknow what I mean? HAHAHA okay I don’t know what I’m talking about but this book is reaaally good. There’s romance too but the romance is just like the icing on the cake for this book.
But yeah, holy crap this book is gooood. And if y’all don’t believe me, there are other raving reviews about this book. So read it!
