A Dominion Mystery, #1
~Published: October 12th 2016
~Genres: Historical, Mystery, Young Adult
It’s August of 1888, just three weeks before Jack the Ripper will begin his grisly spree in the 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?
Kat Ross worked as a journalist at the United Nations for ten years before happily falling back into what she likes best: making stuff up. She lives in Westchester with her kid and a few sleepy cats. Kat is also the author of the dystopian thriller Some Fine Day (Skyscape, 2014), about a world where the sea levels have risen sixty meters. She loves magic, monsters and doomsday scenarios. Preferably with mutants.
Supernatural historical mystery - you can't go wrong!
This mash-up of genres is amazing, and a wonderful mix for me. I jumped at the chance to read and review this novel, and I'm glad I did. Especially considering the time of year, this book was great to get me in the perfect mood.
Anyone who enjoys mysteries will appreciate this unique setting, and intriguing setup. The characters are deep, and the background is gripping. With the backdrop of August of 1888, the last bits of Summer chilling into fall, this story will refresh any eerie-loving reader.
I will definitely be making this a regular read for my October lists, and would recommend to anyone. Have fun!
