Fatal Incision is an awesome murder mystery about Jack the Ripper who lead the Scotland Yard detectives Matthew Ward, and Jimmy Black to New York City to find out if Jack the Ripper and the Manhattan Ripper is one in the same and to help catch him, even though some at the NYPD were not to happy about them being there.
Women are being grossly murdered,, body parts are being taken out.
Ward and Black must visit bars night after night looking for Jack. Special Detective Mary Nolan is brought in to be used for bait. She dresses up like the mysterious woman named Joan that Ripper is looking for. While looking for Jack they also must protect Mary who happens to be the Commissioners daughter. There will be hell to pay if something should happen to her, besides Ward has taken a liking to Mary. He has never met a woman like her.
Fatal Incision is the best thriller I have read so far this year, it is chalked full of suspense, murder, even romance, a can't put down, bone chiller historical mystery, with a twist.
But the NYPD are not gracious hosts and resent their interference. Undeterred, Ward and Black visit the seedy side of New York City and incorporate new investigative procedures to aid in their hunt. With the help of New York Detective Mary Nolan and newly psychology-graduate Sarah Dewers, the detectives make a chilling discovery: Jack isn't whom he seems to be.
Fatal Incision tells a different story than anything you can imagine. With a wonderful array of complex, humorous, and shady characters, WR Park's shares his unique take on an old tale. Fatal Incision, cleverly plotted, takes place in two distinctively different yet fascinating cities during a horrific killing spree that will shake you to your core. Recommendation: while reading Mr. Park's Fatal Incision keep a light burning.

I really liked this book! Everything about it was so authentic-the details of the crimes, the setting, even the variety of vernaculars rang true. The mystery was brisk, fast-paced and quite surprising. The author's take on who Jack the Ripper really was is a very unique twist. Even the secondary characters are sharply written and intriguing. The romantic subplot was a nice twist, as well.
The ending totally leads the way into a new series with great possibilities. I'll be following along on the next adventure!
The Starlight Club (Starlight Club, The) by Joe Corso.
I have to admit that I was disappointed by this book. I had figured out the murderer early on, which took a lot away from the mystery. I also felt that towards the end the authors were throwing up very obvious false clues to mislead the reader, almost as if they expect the reader to be stupid. I found the characters a bit stereotypical, and the relationships they instantly fall into a bit farfetched. Overall, this isn't one I would recommend.
