Escaping Houdini (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #3) by Kerri Maniscalco @KerriManiscalco @Bpoelle



In this third installment in the #1 bestselling Stalking Jack the Ripper series, a luxurious ocean liner becomes a floating prison of scandal, madness, and horror when passengers are murdered one by one…with nowhere to run from the killer. . 

Audrey Rose Wadsworth and her partner-in-crime-investigation, Thomas Cresswell, are en route to New York to help solve another blood-soaked mystery. Embarking on a week-long voyage across the Atlantic on the opulent RMS Etruria, they’re delighted to discover a traveling troupe of circus performers, fortune tellers, and a certain charismatic young escape artist entertaining the first-class passengers nightly.

But then, privileged young women begin to go missing without explanation, and a series of brutal slayings shocks the entire ship. The strange and disturbing influence of the Moonlight Carnival pervades the decks as the murders grow ever more freakish, with nowhere to escape except the unforgiving sea. It’s up to Audrey Rose and Thomas to piece together the gruesome investigation as even more passengers die before reaching their destination. But with clues to the next victim pointing to someone she loves, can Audrey Rose unravel the mystery before the killer’s horrifying finale?


OK, so if you have been following my reviews on this series you will know that I love it! Everything from the beautiful artwork on the cover, the entertaining and brilliant characters, to the fascinating and wonderful storyline and time placements. This series has been everything I love in a story.

Escaping From Houdini, the third book, is no exception. This time we are on a boat bound for the America’s with Houdini and his crew as the entertainment. Fun right? Until people start dying and it falls on Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Sir Thomas Cresswell to figure out who and why. Even though I haven’t been as big a fan of Houdini as I have been of Jack the Ripper stories and Dracula stories, I am still fascinated and the story was still wonderfully entertaining and obviously I can not wait for the next one!!
