FROM AMAZON: An evil lurks in the darkest corners of Victorian London…


Amaris Maxwell has lived her entire life with ill health. As the daughter of a prominent doctor, it never occurred to her to question his abilities, nor his associate’s rather unorthodox treatments. But the life of a sheltered woman has its disadvantages. She yearns to be free, to live an existence outside the same four walls. It isn’t until fate thrusts her into the path of Mr. Jackson Moreland that she begins to question everything she’s ever known. As a mysterious killer begins to terrorize the streets of London, Amaris realizes that things are not always how they may appear…

But how close is the true villain?

Jackson Moreland has lived the last two years of his life in a personal hell after the brutal murder of his wife. Released from an asylum, he struggles to come to terms with his reality. When he is engaged by Scotland Yard to assist in learning the identity of the murderer of Whitechapel, everything changes the moment he meets Amaris. He knows something isn’t right and he’s determined to find out what it is.

As things progress between them and secrets are revealed amid their growing attraction, they begin to fear that the true threat may not be the Ripper after all.

MY REVIEW: (5 STARS)  With a stunning blend of fact and fiction, Tabetha Waite has penned a flawless Victorian historical romance with an overlay of gothic.

The characters came alive for me. I cheered for Amaris, detested the two doctors, and felt stabs of pity for Jackson. The last few chapters had me gasping with surprise and wondering how the book would end.

Jack the Ripper is one of those unsolved mysteries that seem to fascinate people. The fact that Waite managed to weave so much of this case plus all the other historically accurate people/places in among her fictional characters showcases her magnificent writing abilities.

I highly recommend this book.
