In the 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?… (mais)

I found Audrey Rose fall less irritating in this final installment of the Jack the Ripper series. There were still moments that she too much in her own mind and needed to stop overthinking everyone's actions (specifically Thomas), but she was much stronger emotionally and psychologically which I appreciated. I like the travel that occurs within each book and liked hearing some of the history behind the U.S. This was a good, solid ending. ( )

Contains spoilers!!!!
Such a great series. I’m sad that it’s over but I think it’s a brave and intelligent move to know when to end a series.
This story culminates at the World’s fair in Paris. Thomas and Audrey Rose are not yet married due to a complication but that problem is put on the back burner as they realize the real Jack the Ripper is still on the loose and murdering women. They track him to Paris along with Audrey Rose’s Uncle and then all hell breaks loose and Audrey Rose almost loses everything including the lives of those she loves. ( )

Wow what an ending to one of my all time fav series. This was wonderful and engaging. I can't believe the series is over. I want more Audrey-Rose and Thomas Cresswell adventures. ( )

The final book in the series, Capturing the Devil, cannot be read as a "stand alone." The other books could be although I wouldn't recommend it because Audrey Rose and Thomas are half of the plot and you'd miss reading how they develop as a couple. More than that, with this book, previous cases are discussed and would spoil the books.

The book centers mostly on Thomas and Audrey Rose. They are determined to marry, but there are hindrances. In the midst of these problems, Thomas and Audrey Rose must decide what they are willing to risk to be together. Do they defy society? Run and take on new names? Separate?

Of course, danger lurks everywhere. They have deaths in New York, but Americans aren't interested in having Jack the Ripper in American and don't need any help. Only Thomas and Audrey Rose know that they captured Jack and he's dead. Is it possible that their murderer from book one isn't the murderer but only the crazy scientist who used the bodies for his own experiments? The killer is obsessed with Audrey Rose. After what happened on the ship, Audrey Rose is more physically limited. Can she defend herself if necessary? They travel to Chicago following the killing leads. It's the Great World's Fair of 1890. Women are disappearing. They must find the killer and find a way to remain a couple despite the many forces pulling them apart.

I thought this was the best novel of the four. I loved Audrey Rose's grandmother, and all of the characters make an appearance. There's an ending--it's very much a 2020 ending instead of what would really happen in the late 1800s. I would say these books would appeal to more mature readers. I really enjoyed them! ( )

The series in all was just okay. Although this book in particular was just plain terrible. I hated it it took me way to long to read it because I just wasn’t motivated. The whole book was basically just focused on Thomas and Audrey rose’s relationship. Which is great but it’s supposed to be a mystery book. Like I love Audrey rose and Thomas but I didn’t pick up this series to read about them having sex on every other page. It was as if the author got confused and thought she was writing a love series but then remembered this book is also suppose to be a mystery series and tried to squeeze it in on the last few pages.
