Capturing the Devil

By Kerri Maniscalco
Capturing the Devil by Kerri Maniscalco digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

In this shocking finale to the bestselling 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?

“As much as I loved the first and second books I couldn't bring myself to rate the latter 2 any more than 3 stars. And even those ratings were generous. Audrey Rose turned from a highly intelligent person who carefully inspected her choices into an insufferable individual who hurt Thomas unnecessarily and made foolish decisions that could have resulted in their demise on many occasions if not for plot armour. Thomas, God bless him, as much as I love his character I believe that love has made him blind because not once did he blame Audrey Rose for her transgressions against him and instead looked to external factors (I'm looking at you mephisto) to justify her actions. There is something as being too supportive. Being involved with someone in a relationship requires compromise and a certain give and take for it to be healthy and successful. This relationship in my opinion was heavily one sided on Audrey Rose's part. As much as they talked about not being one another's keeper, Thomas always deferred to Audrey's judgment in the end, and yet rarely did she extend him the same courtesy because apparently being a feminist involves acting selfishly and refusing any opinion that the opposite sex has to offer. This is only a snippet on what was wrong with SOME of the characters. Plot wise the mystery (?) was very weak. As soon as we learned of how the first body was disposed of Henry popped into my head (as he was only introduced a few chapters prior with no subtlety in regard to his future involvement in the story). The wedding fiasco was completely unnecessary and only served as an excuse for them to postpone their nuptials which, again, was irrelevant seeing as they were in no hurry to be wedded. They could have easily waited to solve the case and then gotten married. Many characters were reduced to plot devices (Thomas's father, the ex (?), Mephisto which was probably a good thing. The less that I saw of him the better), and everything unfolded conveniently for our main detectives despite them doing close to no sleuthing. I think that the series stretched on unnecessarily especially with the third book. It could have easily been a duology with a novella that described their wedding. Instead what was intended as a mystery became a poorly executed romance with unneeded drama and love triangles. The exquisite writing was one of the only reasons that encouraged me to keep on reading.”
