    Description

    The number one New York Times best-selling series that started with Stalking Jack the Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula continues in this third bloody installment! A luxurious ocean liner becomes a floating prison of madness and horror when passengers are murdered one by one...with nowhere to run from the killer.

    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 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?

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    Commentaires

    "Audrey Rose is a witty, resourceful feminist who refuses to bow to Victorian-era gender norms. This dark, gothic landscape is peopled with nuanced, diverse characters who keep readers enthralled. A gripping mystery with a compelling heroine and just the right touch of romance." (Kirkus)

    "Displaying her usual fierce determination and progressive ideals, Audrey Rose is once again a compelling protagonist. Another delightfully mysterious addition to the series." (School Library Journal)

    "Maniscalco's winning combinations of historical fiction, romance, forensics, and a feisty heroine will attract historical-fiction and romance readers.... Well-placed hooks advance the plot and sustain the swift pace." (Booklist)

    Immensely disappointed

    I have been stuck like glue since the beginning of the first chapter of book one, Until now that is the characters have become stale in my opinion. I am hoping that in book four she can spices things up a bit brunt Thomas and Audrey have become stale. Was not impressed with the ending either. I believe Carrie is it amazing author and have thoroughly enjoyed her work thus far, don’t get me wrong there were good points in the story and some plot twist but nothing like The first two books this one was highly predictable.

    A Disappointing Third Installment

    I cant believe this is the same author and characters. The plot was boring, except for the murders. All, and I mean all the characters got on my nerves! I was just waiting for the end. Which the ending was FANTASTIC! But it wasn’t enough to pull the rest of the book. I’m still very excited and hopeful for the next book.

    Am I biased?

    I did not enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed The other 2 and I'm not exactly sure why. Maybe I'm biased against carnivals? And I know I hate this part of story lines where the couple suddenly have a 3rd part enter and the relationship is questioned. But this book just had an over all different feel to it. I found myself hating almost every decision that Audrey rose made, and pitying poor Thomas for having to deal with all that and still remaining a gentleman. I also thought there were several key clues that were ignored through the book when they shouldn't have been.

    Also, did Liza lose her finger or not????

    It's a great story but the writing is weak, read anyway. Good for book club.

    Ok

    Though not as good as previous books it is ok. The story is spoiled if you know anything about Harry Houdini life.

    Amazing, loved it!

    another great installment to the series. the dedication and quality of this novel hold up to its reputation. its hard at times to come up with review after review without being repetitious but every book of Kerri's I read delivers the same, if not higher quality entertainment. The narration was spot on again. each characters personality really shown through and with everyone having their own voice and accent it was a very immersive experience.

    Omg

    Almost every time I annotated, the first words would be: omg or aww.
    This was one amazing story. Again. It never bores me and seems to get better with every book. I still don’t get who the killer is, until it is revealed for the characters.
    I love how the title is correct but misleads you, just like the two before.
    The whole dynamic between Audrey Rose and Thomas is a beautiful, but dangerous dance and gives you all the feels. This mystery-romance-murder book is one to read more than once.

    Wo Audrey Rose geht und steht...

    pflastern Leichen ihren Weg. Selbst auf dem Weg nach Amerika auf einem Schiff, trifft die Heldin auf einen Mörder. Gemeinsam mit Thomas macht sich Audrey Rose erneut auf, das Rätsel zu lösen. Umrandet wird das ganze, durch einen Wanderzirkus, dessen Mitglied Houdini ist. Verschwörung, Rätsel, Mystery, Tarotkarten, Feuerschlucker, Messerwerfer, Wahrsager - alles ist vorhanden und macht es nicht leicht, dem Mörder auf die Spur zu kommen. Wie immer ist die Geschichte spannend und schlüssig und mit mehr unerwarteten Wendungen, wie die Geschichten vorher. Die Sprecherin macht erneut eine hervorragenden Job. Buch 4 erwarte ich mit Spannung.
