Waiting on Wednesday (#14) - The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson

Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

The Madness Underneath (Shades of London, #2)
After her near-fatal run-in with the Jack the Ripper copycat, Rory Devereaux has been living in Bristol under the close watch of her parents. So when her therapist suddenly suggests she return to Wexford, Rory jumps at the chance. But Rory's brush with the Ripper touched her more than she thought possible: she's become a human terminus, with the power to eliminate ghosts on contact. She soon finds out that the Shades— the city's secret ghost-fighting police—are responsible for her return. The Ripper may be gone, but now there is a string of new inexplicable deaths threatening London. Rory has evidence that the deaths are no coincidence. Something much more sinister is going on, and now she must convince the squad to listen to her before it's too late.

In this follow-up to the Edgar Award-nominated The Name of the Star, Maureen Johnson adds another layer of spectacularly gruesome details to the streets of London that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.


 Why I'm Waiting For It: I completely love the first book and stayed up all night reading it because it was so good! I'm hoping that this one has all the suspense, edge, and action like the first book! I so cannot wait to grab this in 2013!

The Madness Underneath will be released on February 26th 2013 by Putnam Juvenile
