The Jackson women, Indiana and Amanda, have always had each other. Yet, while their bond is strong, mother and daughter are as different as night and day. Indiana, a beautiful holistic healer, is a free-spirited bohemian. Long divorced from Amanda's father, she's reluctant to settle down with either of the men who want her-Alan, the wealthy scion of one of San Francisco's elite families, and Ryan, an enigmatic, scarred former U.S. Navy SEAL.

While her mom looks for the good in people, Amanda is fascinated by the dark side of human nature, just like her father, the San Francisco Police Department's deputy chief of Homicide. Brilliant and introverted, the MIT-bound high school senior is a natural-born sleuth, addicted to crime novels and Ripper, the online mystery game she plays with her beloved grandfather and friends around the world.

When a string of strange murders occurs across the city, Amanda plunges into her own investigation, discovering, before the police do, that the deaths may be connected. But the case becomes all too personal when Indiana suddenly vanishes. Could her mother's disappearance be linked to the serial killer? Now, with her mother's life on the line, the young detective must solve the most complex mystery she's ever faced before it's too late.

Editorial Reviews

“[A] rip-roaring, entertaining crime novel. . . . Allende remains a remarkable spinner of stories. Her prose is sparkling and graceful . . . her ability to portray passion and action undimmed. Ripper grabs you, toys with you, amuses you.” —Star Tribune (Minneapolis)“Thoroughly charming book. . . . A lot of fun to read.” —The New York Times Book Review“It must have been surprising to discover that [Allende’s] particular literary strengths—a talent for dramatization, a delight in world-building and a passion for investigating relationships between family members—lend themselves so well to a genre she’s never bothered with before. I am hoping she’ll continue her killings.” —San Francisco Chronicle
