About the Author

Isabel Allende is the author of twelve works of fiction, including the New York Times bestsellers Maya's Notebook, Island Beneath the Sea, Ines of My Soul, Daughter of Fortune, and a novel that has become a world-renowned classic, The House of the Spirits. Born in Peru and raised in Chile, she lives in California.


"Allende's tightly plotted tale of crimes obvious and masked is sharply perceptive, utterly charming, and intensely suspenseful."--Booklist, starred review
"Appealing characters, a fast-paced plot, and a successfully imagined killer add up to great entertainment."--Library Journal
"The novelist's charming first murder mystery features an irresistible teenage sleuth."--New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice
"[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..."--Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Thoroughly charming book... [A] lot of fun to read."--New York Times Book Review
"Literary icon Isabel Allende mesmerizes with her first crime novel...this race-against-the-clock thriller is pure magic."--People Magazine, Four Stars
"[Allende's] facility with plotting and pacing will keep readers turning the pages."--Publishers Weekly
"Allende doesn't miss a beat, smoothly exposing the underbelly of the city and the shenanigans of its wealthy elite. You might guess the identity of the killer before the last pages, but you won't care-the shocks and unexpected twists will keep you riveted until the end."--More Magazine
"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
"There are deliciously creepy elements in 'Ripper, ' much like those in the dark Scandinavian crime novels one of its characters loves."--Seattle Times
"Like many of Allende books it's a joy to read with sentences to savor and read aloud. An excellent novel, RIPPER is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."--I Love a Mystery (Blog)
