I love a good mystery and this story is just that. Set in the turn-of-the-century New York, Ripper is a fun and exciting mystery tale that seems to have it all: chases, intrigue, the crazy mentor, roof-top fights, romance, nifty little gadgets, and a jaw dropping plot twist that you don’t see coming. While the mystery is intricate, the reader will still be able to following the story. You are never quite sure where the trail will lead, but you can be assured that there will be adventure along the way. You may want to check out titles Dodger and The Hunchback Assignments.
