I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Mailbox Monday #42

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

I have received my first book in my mailbox at my new apartment (well, it technically came to my door, but let's not worry about the semantics). It was very exciting to come home and my boyfriend tell me that a book had come!

This book was received for review from Sourcebooks for September:

What Alice Knew: A Curious Tale of Henry James and Jack the Ripper by Paula Marantz Cohen.

"A fun and clever literary reinterpretation, with Henry James hot on the trail of Jack the Ripper

Henry James is suffering through boring drunken dinner parties in London, but when his brother William-renowned for his groundbreaking work in the new science of psychology-is summoned from America by Scotland Yard to help investigate an East End serial killer who calls himself Jack the Ripper, things are suddenly much more interesting.

Their bedridden sister Alice James takes on the role of lead detective, as the three precocious siblings attempt to unravel the true identity of the killer. Searching London high and low, encountering characters both suspicious and ridiculous, they inch closer to a killer neither they, nor readers, would suspect."

Anything awesome arrive in your mailbox this past week?

  1. Oh yeah, you got that one. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think. I've always been fascinated by Jack the Ripper but had to turn this one down as I am swamped with ARCs.

    Hope it's a good one!

    Have a gret week Heather!

    HERE is my Mailbox Monday.

  2. That sounds fascinating-I just added it to my TBR List.

  3. I had not heard of this book. It sounds good. I've added it to my Wish List. The mystery of Jack the Ripper has always intrigued me.
