Waiting on Wednesday #1: Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco

Hey everyone! And happy Wednesday. I come to you today with some great news. I’ve decided to join in on a new meme: Waiting on Wednesday! Well, it’s not new to the blogging world, but it’s certainly new to me. I’ve noticed this meme around for quite some time, and decided that I should join in on the fun!

Title: Escaping from Houdini
Author: Kerri Maniscalco
Type: Fiction
Genre: YA, Historical, Mystery
Publisher: JIMMY Patterson (Hachette Book Group)
Published: September 18, 2018

Note: This book is the third book in a series, so if you have not read the previous two (Stalking Jack the Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula) yet, I would not recommend reading the below synopsis!

Audrey Rose Wadsworth and her partner-in-crime-investigation, Thomas Cresswell, are en route to New York to help solve another blood-soaked mystery. Embarking on a week-long voyage across the Atlantic on the opulent RMS Etruria, they’re delighted to discover a traveling troupe of circus performers, fortune tellers, and a certain charismatic young escape artist entertaining the first-class passengers nightly.

But then, privileged young women begin to go missing without explanation, and a series of brutal slayings shocks the entire ship. The strange and disturbing influence of the Moonlight Carnival pervades the decks as the murders grow ever more freakish, with nowhere to escape except the unforgiving sea. It’s up to Audrey Rose and Thomas to piece together the gruesome investigation as even more passengers die before reaching their destination. But with clues to the next victim pointing to someone she loves, can Audrey Rose unravel the mystery before the killer’s horrifying finale?
