Novels


A Brutal Chill in August, a Novel of Polly Nichols, the First Victim of Jack the Ripper , an audio book novel by Alan M. Clark. Narrated by Alicia Rose.


We all know about Jack the Ripper, the serial murderer who terrorized Whitechapel and confounded police in 1888, but how much do we really know about his victims?

Pursued by one demon into the clutches of another, the ordinary life of Mary Ann "Polly" Nichols is made extraordinary by horrible, inhuman circumstance. Jack the Ripper's first victim comes to life in this sensitive and intimate fictionalized portrait, from humble beginnings, to building a family with an abusive husband, her escape into poverty and the workhouse, alcoholism, and finally abandoned on the streets of London where the Whitechapel Murderer found her.

With A Brutal Chill in August, Alan M. Clark gives readers an uncompromising and terrifying look at the nearly forgotten human story behind one of the most sensational crimes in history. This is horror that happened.

A Parliament of Crows, an audio book novel by Alan M. Clark. Narrated by Laura Jennings. 


A Parliament of Crows is about three women in black. Always in mourning clothes—secretive, devious and deadly—they might at first appear to be long lost members of the Addams Family or characters drawn by Edward Gorey, but the women in this novel are inspired by three sisters from history who were anything but humorous. The story of their lives and their crimes is the very definition of Southern Gothic.

Audible.com   or   Amazon


Comprised of the two novels Say Anything But Your Prayers and Of Thimble and Threat.

On the night of September 30, 1888, Jack the Ripper took two lives in the Whitechapel district of London. Elizabeth Stride was killed at about 1 a.m. A 10-minute walk away, and less than an hour later, Catherine Eddowes was killed. The next day, a letter known as the Saucy Jacky postcard was received at the Central News Agency. The message was meant to taunt the police and perhaps the entire city. The writer, who signed the postcard Jack the Ripper, referred to the killings of the night before as "the double event."  Watch the book trailer.

Say Anything But Your Prayers:

The beast of poverty and disease had stalked Elizabeth all her life, waiting for the right moment to take her down. To survive, she listened to the two extremes within herself - Bess, the innocent child of hope, and Liza, the cynical, hard-bitten opportunist. While Bess paints rosy pictures of what lies ahead and Liza warns of dangers everywhere, the beast, in the guise of a man offering something better, circles closer.

Of Thimble and Threat:

The story of the intense love between a mother and a child, a story of poverty and loss, fierce independence, and unconquerable will. It is the devastating portrayal of a self-perpetuated descent into Hell, a lucid view into the darkest parts of the human heart.
