Happy Wednesday!

I listened to Hunting Prince Dracula yesterday, and I loved Aubrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Creswell even more than in the first book. I'm so excited for more of them and their murder-solving brilliance.

Title: Escaping From Houdini
Author: Kerri Maniscalco
Expected Publication Date: 18 September 2018

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?

  5. Someday I MUST read this series! I see it everywhere (or it feels like it) and despite it not being a book I'd usually pick up, something about it looks really good. :)
