So, this book started off gruesome. Which means I immediately fell in love. If you are not morbid like me and interested in all things victorian and grotesque then this book might not be for you. It definitely has a mixture of some vibes: a little bit Frankenstein, a little bit The Alienist, and some play from Jack the Ripper.
Stalking Jack the Ripper begins with Audrey Rose digging into a cadaver. Cool stuff, I told you! Enter Thomas Cresswell and his flirtatious scientific self. These two pair up after a murder or two trying to get in the mind of the killer. Why are these murders happening? What are the connections? Who could do something so dark?
This book is written in such a fascinating manner. Its both excellent storytelling with dashes of macabre throughout. There was a lot of build up throughout the story, however, I must admit I figured out who the killer was at the beginning of the book.
I am really looking forward to continuing this series and see what adventures await Audrey Rose and Thomas Cresswell. Afterall, Prince Dracula awaits me next.
