Escaping From Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco

This is the third book in the Stalking Jack the Ripper series.

Audrey Rose and Thomas Cresswell find themselves aboard a luxurious ocean liner that becomes a floating prison of horror when passengers are murdered one by one, with nowhere to run from the killer. Embarking on a week-long voyage across the Atlantic on the opulent RMS Etruria , Audrey Rose Wadsworth and her partner-in-crime-investigation, Thomas Cresswell, are 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 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 more and more bizarre. It’s up to Audrey Rose and Thomas to piece together the gruesome investigation before 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?

I loved seeing Audrey and Thomas go to another different place and see how they can solve murder on the see. I loved the ship seating and the way Audrey and Thomas got so much closer and you could see they definitely trust each other a lot more.

I loved the circus group and how they were such an integral part of the story. Each of the circus performers were unique and I loved seeing Audrey and Thomas interact with them.

I can’t wait to see what Audrey and Thomas get up to in America.
