Priya Inspired by Name of the Star?


Sarah Heffern Haha, maybe a little? It's for sure what had Jack the Ripper on my mind, but as someone who loves crime fiction/true crime, I've also been thinking a lot about the limited role victims are given in those genres, and why. This book was entirely focused on giving the victims back their stories, which felt like a welcome (and important) change.
