Happy Friday everybody!!

I placed my thumb and forefinger on the icy flesh, spreading it taut above the breastbone as Uncle had showed me.
Friday 56:
The murderer must truly be a madman if he thought what he was doing was helpful or righteous. And that thought was more terrifying than any other.
This week I am spotlighting Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maiscalco. Here is the description from Amazon:
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.
