Waiting on Wednesday #137

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight an upcoming release that you're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on.....
 
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Releases on: September 20th 2016
Add on Goodreads!
 
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 debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.
 
Thoughts:
So I'm gonna be honest, the fact that this book focuses on Jack the Ripper at all is what makes me want to read it. I absolutely love anything to do with Jack the Ripper and find that aspect of history fascinating. An author incorporating it into a story is just too enticing to pass up. Oh, and this cover is absolutely stunning!
 
What do you think? Is this something you would read?
What are waiting on this week?
