Publisher's Summary

In the shocking finale to the best-selling series that began with Stalking Jack the Ripper, Audrey Rose and Thomas are on the hunt for the depraved, elusive killer known as the White City Devil. A deadly game of cat-and-mouse has them fighting to stay one step ahead of the brilliant serial killer - or see their fateful romance cut short by unspeakable tragedy.

Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell have landed in America, a bold, brash land unlike the genteel streets of London. But like London, the city of Chicago hides its dark secrets well. When the two attend the spectacular World's Fair, they find the once-in-a-lifetime event tainted with reports of missing people and unsolved murders.

Determined to help, Audrey Rose and Thomas begin their investigations, only to find themselves facing a serial killer unlike any they've encountered before. Identifying him is one thing, but capturing him - and getting dangerously lost in the infamous Murder Hotel he constructed as a terrifying torture device - is another.

Will Audrey Rose and Thomas see their last mystery to the end - together and in love - or will their fortunes finally run out when their most depraved adversary makes one final, devastating kill?

Great end to an epic series!!

This book is everything that a final book in a series ought to be!! It is so satisfying to finally make sense of everything that has happened since the book one!! We see how our main characters develop from their learnings and experiences of each book and apply it to become the best versions of themselves by the end! Though i wished to see the same kind of development with the other side characters such as the cousin, Liza. I needed more for her. I wanted atleast a hint of her getting a happy ending. Other than that, loved how the author so intelligently explored USA in this book. Loved the new characters, especially Audrey's grandmother. She is a delightful, yet one of the strongest characters. Wished there was more of her.
Goodbye to one of the best series i have read, that only changed my view on forensic science, but also made me fall for thriller books.
Would highly recommend this series to everyone. And i still, myself, fancy a reread as well!!

Season 8 of Game of Thrones

I have been a huge fan of this series since Stalking Jack the Ripper and was too excited to finish the last installment. Keri's other three books were full of murder, science, and romance. All of my favorite things! They were the perfect blend that left me satisfied and excited for the next book, the final book was a rich dessert after a perfect three-course meal.

Like a super-rich dessert, I could only stomach a little bit at a time...Thomas and Audry Rose got a lot of passionate screen time which, in my opinion, took over the story. I felt that the added elements of Thomas's father ruining their first wedding was interesting at first but didn't amount to anything in the end...it didn't impact the "capturing of the devil" aspect of this story. I actually felt that too much of this book was dedicated to Thomas and Audry's relationship and not enough on the mystery.

The "clues" they found were so obscure and random that I was lost...Audry and Thomas seemed lost too as their clues were pointed out by other people most of the time. There was a lack of bodies, compared to the other installments, and the H.H Holmes hotel and Worlds Fair were vastly underwritten. I was very disappointed as I was soooo excited to see them use his gruesome history to make this book really pop. I didn't like how his character was written and his motives, while in life were never truly known, went way beyond the fixation of just one person. The confrontation was brief and felt anti-climactic.

I loved the first two hours and the last hour of the book...the rest, to me was slow and had a misguided focus, compared to the others. I was a bit disappointed with this ending, Not Game of Thrones season 8 disappointed but kind of close. Still, I love Kerri's writing and look forward to more of her work. Nicola Barber was also amazing, as always.

Disappointed

I had eagerly finished the other books in the series, eagerly awaiting the endings. I had this book pre-ordered, and was so excited I had the physical copy and had to download the audible version. This was more of a drama. It was hard for me to get through the book, and I had hoped it would get better. I had a few good parts, but was hard to read. I’ll be returning the audible version for this one.

Good, but not perfect

I really liked this book but a lot of the information was irrelevant to the overall plot of the story. Like, how Audrey Rose and Thomas’ first wedding was. I mean it was written well but didn’t contribute to the murder part. Also unlike in the other stories, the murderer here was barely a secondary character and had little to be more of. It didn’t come with that surprise “aha!” moment that the others did. It would’ve been more interesting if we actually knew something about the murderer and he had been a friend or acquaintance. I hope Kerri Manascalco can write another novel explaining why the murderer thinks he was “born evil”. Still, i liked how strong and powerful Audrey Rose was despite her broken leg and the wonderful relationship of “Cressworth”. Also am the only one who is sad that Mephistopheles left? Anyways, this could’ve been better but it’s still good.

More about the love story

I enjoyed this book. It seems a lot of people have an issue that this book was much more about the relationship between Audrey Rose and Thomas. I personally didn’t mind it but if your interest in the murders and detective aspect than you might be a little disappointed.

Better than the last

This one was better than the third but I still just found it ok. I didnt hate the ending but I did wish the Devil was someone we already knew. The romance was eh in this one as well although I appreciate how they stuck together.

Glad the series is finished

The first two books were incredible, but this book, like the third was just tedious most of the way through. I did enjoy the author bringing the stories together and including characters from previous books. But there was no mystery as you waited for the obvious climax/perpetrator to finally be acknowledged. That being said, I still enjoy the author’s writing style.

Love! I need more.

I absolutely loved this book. It was such a wonderful conclusion to the series although I think she could totally continue it as an adult series and I would definitely read that! I loved the way the author twisted the series and gave you a few wait what (!) moments. I loved how she allowed Audrey to really shine in this story while continuing the romance of the couple and not letting either overshadow the other.
The narrator as always did a wonderful job and really drew me into the characters and storyline. I am sad to see the end to this book but can’t wait to see what the author writes next!

Amazing series

This series is an amazing read! It truly kept you guessing and was very detailed! It made you feel all the emotions the characters experienced! Not only that the author kept the suspense high through each adventure! Also the performance was perfect. she gave each character their own personality, and truly conveyed their emotions!I would recommend to anyone who was interested in adventure, mystery, and even a little romance!!

A great book series!

The last and final book of this series. A great finale and a great ending of the story of Audry Rose and Thomas. I have really enjoyed this series and I really hope they are making movies of this series. It's all adventure and mystery which will make a great TV-show. I like the ending of this movie though it happened a lot in the last chapters, which sometimes can be a lot for a reader to understand. But if we set that at the side it is a rich book with rich language and description, which is easy for a reader to "see" what is happening. Once again, a great book series!

A brilliant end

Interesting concept, not without its flaws, and definitely YA but enjoyable all the same

Wow!
What a fantastic book. It kept me on the edge of my seat, brought tears to my eyes and kept me wanting for more. I couldn’t get enough of this book, just when I thought it would go one way, it went another. It tied up all ends nicely and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Sobbing

I will miss you Thomas Cresswell and Audrey Rose. After these adventures, I feel like I'm saying goodbye to my closest friends. These stories have changed me and helped me through a truly dark time in my own life. Thank you Kerri Maniscalco for gifting the world with these incredible pieces of art and history. I can't wait to read whatever you have next.

A Decently Satisfying Conclusion

I’ll admit, was a bit nervous going into this book given that I didn’t particularly like book 3. After reading it, I’m happy to report that I was not disappointed!
This was a great conclusion to the series and offered everything I loved about the previous books.
The plot was exciting and engaging, I did figure out the twist a little before it was revealed, but to be honest I felt pretty satisfied about that rather than disappointed.
I love Audrey and Thomas’ relationship so much, their banter is fantastic and I love the support and acceptance they offer each other. The side characters were less prevalent in this book than the others, but I did still like the time we got with Thomas’ and Audrey’s families.
This book wasn’t without its faults, there were a few plotlines that seemed to be dropped for most of the book and Audrey’s internal monologues are prone to melodrama. However, I was having too much fun with the rest of the story to really care about these flaws.
The narrator did a fantastic job bringing the characters and atmosphere to life.
Overall, except book 3, this was a really fun, addictive series and I really enjoyed reading them.
