Ripper by Isabel Allende
February 10, 2014 - Amy Phelps
Teens across the globe attempt to solve a series of murders in San Francisco in Isabel Allende's "Ripper."
Amanda Jackson has been playing Ripper, an online mystery game, with her grandfather and many young people across the world. She gets her sleuthing interest naturally - her father is the San Francisco police department's deputy chief of homicide. Amanda's mother, Indiana, is a flighty beauty, flirting with both a wealthy and powerful man and a former Navy SEAL and refusing to choose either. When Amanda's celebrity godmother, a famed astrolger, predicts a bloodbath, and a series of murders begin to happen, Amanda and her friends and grandfather begin their own investigation. It becomes even more personal when Amanda's mother goes missing. Has she been taken by the murderer? Is she involved or is the murderer closer than anyone thinks?
This is a stylish thriller with a compelling group of characters. The plot twists will keep everyone guessing until the very end.
"Ripper" is published by Harper. It is $28.99 and 475 pages long.
