Ripper - Amy Carol Reeves Ripper is another take on the infamous and unsolved Jack the Ripper murders. This one features Arabella Sharp, an independently minded young woman who tries to save the victims before it was too late. She quickly realize that more is going on then the police can comprehend and it involves her.
I really enjoyed the historical accuracy of this book. The tone felt very appropriate and the details really pulled me in. Arabella is thoughtful and clearheaded. The only negative would be how distant her voice is and how intense her actions are. Because the narration was so emotionally removed most of her actions felt like they were coming out of nowhere. That also pulled the punch of the bad guy development.
