Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.
Against her stern father’s wishes and society’s expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle’s laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Ahhh! I loved this book so much!
If you’re in the mood for a book with a badass heroine and a charming, sarcastic sidekick then I would definitely pick this up!
Our heroine, Audrey Rose is not your average female in her society. She prefers dissecting bodies to tea parties and she spends most of her time volunteering in her uncle’s lab. This is where she meets the charming, cocky Thomas Cresswell and the banter begins. I adored the chemistry between ‘Cresswell’ and ‘Wadsworth’ and it just made this book 10(00000000)x better!😍
Ok, so on to the plot…when more and more prostitutes start showing up dead, Audrey and Thomas begin to investigate and try to figure out the killer’s identity for themselves. Personally, I had my suspicions from the beginning as to who the killer was and it turns out I was right! In fact my only complaint is that the killer’s identity was a little too easy to guess and I feel like the ending would have been more intense, had it been a surprise.
Also, I really loved the end of the book and how it was set up for the book 2!!! I’ll be starting Hunting Prince Dracula ASAP!
All in all, if you love a book with murder mystery, Sherlock Holmes vibes and some seriously awesome banter, then I highly recommend you pick this one up!
