Présentation de l'éditeur

From New York Times and USA Today bestseller Michael Prescott, author of FINAL SINS and COLD AROUND THE HEART, comes RIPTIDE, a dark, unsettling descent into old crimes and new madness.

Jennifer Silence reads between the lines. A psycholinguistic analyst, she studies documents written by murderers, teasing out hidden clues. But nothing in her life has prepared her for the document that is now in her hands. A leather-bound diary from a crumbling crypt.

The diary of Jack the Ripper.

If it is genuine, it suggests a troubling connection between Jennifer's family and history's most infamous serial killer. A connection that may explain her father's suicide ... and her brother's mental illness. A connection that may implicate her brother in a new rash of killings, and prove that the Ripper's spirit still prowls dark streets and alleys, taking lives ...

And the next victim may be Jennifer herself.

RIPTIDE is the newest thriller from Michael Prescott, whose novels have been hailed as "brilliant ... chilling ... unrelentingly suspenseful" (Publishers Weekly), "harrowing ... intense" (Jeffery Deaver), "irresistible, un-put-downable" (Crescent Blues), and "stunning ... far above the usual offerings for the genre" (New Mystery Reader).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Welcome Back Michael Prescott 8 juillet 2010

More than two years is a long time to wait for a new novel by Michael Prescott. While Final Sins, his last book, was not quite up to the standards to which I hold him accountable, his newest, Riptide, certainly is. This is one meticulously researched book and I felt like I was in on the original Jack the Ripper investigation. I do not want to give away any of the suprises that Mr Prescott has in store for you. Suffice to say the novel is a book that steadily gains momentum up to the time when that final satisfying page is turned. All of the Michael Prescott novels have been well written and suspenseful. If you can find any of them, by all means snap them up. Just as gratifying are the six novels he wrote under the pen name of Brian Harper. Make Michael Prescott a name you look for. Hopefully, all of his books (even the Brian Harper titles) will be made available on Kindle soon! Well done, once again, Mr. Prescott.

I found the Jack the Ripper connection to be very intense. This book brought up some interesting ideas.

I had problems putting this one down to carry on with regular life, I found it to be that good. I would suggest this to everyone who like a crime thriller. I don't think you will be disappointed with this one.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Speculative story on identity and ultimaate end of Jack the Ripper 23 juillet 2011
Par John H. Manhold - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Riptide, e-book edition by Michael Prescott presents a novel based on interesting material about London's infamous Jack the Ripper. The author proposes an identity, enumerates his conquests, and proposes his transfer to the United States where he continues activity in his new environment.
The story centers around Jennifer Silence, a police profiler, and her brother who is a physician suffering from schizophrenia inherited from their physician father who committed suicide. An earthquake of somewhat greater proportions than usual disturbs the foundation of her century old home in Venice, California. The disruption reveals a formerly secrete hiding place in the cellar that sets the plot into motion. Numerous characters provide various levels of interest within the narrative that swings back and forth between the London activities and those taking place in California.
The story is interesting, but the presentation does not provide a `page-turner', per se. I found myself bogged down in some descriptive passages and found Jennifer to be a relatively shallowly-developed person. She seems unable to exhibit demonstrable feeling for anyone other than her brother, and even here, her devotion to the brother is rather tenuous. Her relationship with police sergeant Casey, Investigator Draper, and even her best friend Maura, somehow feel `forced'. Additionally, she makes decisions and engages in activity that work well to move the plot, but often are not what one would expect a rational person to make under the circumstance.
In summary, Riptide provides another tale of the activity, and possible fate, of Jack the Ripper. The postulate of his move to America is one often provided. However, his activity here, and the twist in the conclusion are most interesting. Reviewed by John H. Manhold, author of award winning fiction/non-fiction.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Heck of a fun read! 14 octobre 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book was a hoot. I really enjoyed it, and that's what a good novel is all about. I really liked the research that the author did or had to do to throw together such a good story surrounding the mystery of who Jack the Ripper really was. This book really entertained me and I did not want to put it down until I was done with it. I loved all the little details about Jack the Ripper. Honestly I don't even know if they were true or not, or part of the fiction, but I know some of them were documented facts, and that's what added to the juicy gritty details part of the book. I agree with another reviewer that the main character wasn't likable. She definitely was annoyingly thoughtless, shallow, heedless of the welfare and well being of others... I definitely wanted to slap her upside the head a few times for being so thoughtlessly stupid, but who said the main character is perfect and likable? Haven't we all known someone like that? Someone who treated people who cared about them like crap and was extremely caring and irrational towards someone who didn't care? Doesn't that just mean that Michael Prescott makes his book characters have human qualities that we run into in every day life? The story was entertaining and that's what it's all about isn't it? Entertainment. Michael Prescott is just plain fun to read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 2.5 Stars for Riptide by Michael Prescott 14 juillet 2011
Par Hapa Girl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
****SOFT SPOILER ALERT****
Riptide's premise is a very interesting one, especially for those who find the Jack the Ripper mythology irresistible. Unfortunately, Michael Prescott's novel didn't connect with me entirely.

Psychologist, Dr. Jennifer Silence is on call to the Venice, California PD as a Psycholinguistic Analyst. She reads the hidden messages between the lines of the written word. Her cellar reveals a diary, among other things, that lead her into a world of speculation, Ripperology and ultimately, gruesome murder.

My main dislike was the protagonist herself. I found Jennifer quite unlikeable, shallow & thoughtless. She seemed to argue with most of her friends and colleagues. However, the exception was in her dealings with her brother, Richard, which I found quite heart-wrenching. Throughout the book, I felt Jennifer acted unprofessionally and indulged in questionable and risky behaviour, endangering the lives of those around her with her impulsivity and stubbornness.

Aside from this, I found the story arc rose and fell unevenly, and even the suspenseful action scenes felt anticlimactic. I'm not quite sure why the writing fell flat for me. Just okay, nothing more.
