52 {Books} in 52: Now You See Me

Now You See Me by S.J. Bolton was a book I became interested in reading after reading reviews of it in the newspaper. The story centers around a London-based cop, Lacey Flint, and her connection to a string of murders that mimic the famous Jack the Ripper murders. With her knowledge about the murders and her secret past, Lacey must struggle to not only find the murderer but also to protect herself from having her secrets known.

Now You See Me is an incredibly intense book with graphic scenes and is hard to put down. Bolton weaves twists with ease and fluidity. You never know what to think about the Lacey and even when everything is explained, you still don't know. Is she a hero? A pawn? Is she to blame? Solving the mystery of the book is an intriguing as trying to solve the mystery of who Jack the Ripper was. Just when you think you have a handle on things and a good theory to go on with, something else is revealed and you are left trying to reconfigure the puzzle pieces. Truly a captivating and suspenseful read.
