The Night of the Mannequin
The story itself isn't horrible. Without you saying so I can sense that this is a story that takes places in the Victorian Era perhaps. The horse drawn carriage, Portrait above the fire place and the mention of a manor do the trick. I have to say though that there are quite a few misspelled words and a few misused words. " I couldn't help but admire and extol" and "I slammed the door and ascended down the hill that was my front lawn" are two examples of being too wordy to a fault. Admire and extol are synonyms so to use them together like you did is redundant and does nothing for your story. Ascend means to go up. Saying something like I ambled down the hill or I bounded down the hill would have fit.

Besides the wordiness of the story the concept reminded me of the film, The Lazarus Effect where a scientist uses an underdeveloped serum to bring his wife back from the dead. The surgical aspect reminded me of Frankenstein. So though it may have been completely unintentional the concept isn't very original. However you did a good job as an author in developing a character you knew people could feel sympathy for but also dislike. The Surgeon is a coward who didn't save his wife and tried to create a "clone" by murdering countless other women. If he was going to commit all of these murders then it would have been best to incorporate how the town reacted to all of the missing girls and how the surgeon lured the girls away from town and into his manor. The maid was already there but including how the surgeon got to the other victims would have been extremely helpful to the story's plot. Keep writing. Nourish your imagination and sharpen your skills. Peace.
