BW Synopsis

It’s August of 1888, just three weeks before Jack the Ripper will begin his grisly spree in BC The Daemoniac by Kat Rossthe London slum of Whitechapel, and another serial murderer is stalking the gas-lit streets of New York. With taunting messages in backwards Latin left at the crime scenes and even more inexplicable clues like the fingerprints that appear to have been burned into one victim’s throat, his handiwork bears all the hallmarks of a demonic possession.

But consulting detective Harrison Fearing Pell is convinced her quarry is a man of flesh and blood. Encouraged by her uncle, Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry hopes to make her reputation by solving the bizarre case before the man the press has dubbed Mr. Hyde strikes again.

From the squalor of the Five Points to the high-class gambling dens of the Tenderloin and the glittering mansions of Fifth Avenue, Harry and her best friend, John Weston, follow the trail of a remorseless killer, uncovering a few embarrassing secrets of New York’s richest High Society families along the way. Are the murders a case of black magic—or simple blackmail? And will the trail lead them closer to home than they ever imagined?

BW My Review

PERFECT! This novel is one of my best books of this year!

I’m lost for words that I can use to describe how good this book is. I’m very amazed by the author’s way of writing a very fantastic story that will really make me love it. I might not like a mystery that much but this one really hooked me to the point that I’m getting eager to lay my hands on the next installment of the series.

The mystery that surrounds the place and how the author connected it to the infamous Jack the Ripper of London around 1800s will make you gripped the book as you discover who or what lies behind the killings.

I already have an idea of who might be the killer here but I can’t see any way of pointing him/her as the suspect because the author is really good of not giving away that much to destroy the flow of the story.

I can also relate to the character Harry – short for Harrison. I might not have a big sister like her but I feel like living in the shadow of the child of my mom’s friends. I am also hoping that the author will make a story about Myrtle, Harry’s older sister. I found her very interesting!

I’ve finished reading this around 6 am in the morning because I can’t sleep while thinking about what will happen on the next page. That’s how I’m into the story. So, if you are looking for a mind-crackling book, then this is much recommended for you to read. If you’ve read this already, do we have the same opinion for this novel?
