    1. Amy Sturgis

      This is the second book in Alan M. Clark's Jack the Ripper Victim Series of novels. Say Anything But Your Prayers focuses on the life of Elizabeth Stride, the first of the two victims of the so-called "Double Event" during the Autumn of Terror. It's worth mentioning that many scholars agree that Stride is perhaps the least likely of the "Canonical Five" victims actually to have been murdered by the criminal we know as Jack the Ripper. This does little to detract from Clark's novel, however, as C [...]

      A TOP SHELF review, originally published in the August 22, 2014 edition of The MonitorFor more than a century, the world has been captivated and repulsed by the Whitechapel Murders in which a killer calling himself Jack the Ripper slaughtered as many as 11 women working as prostitutes in the most dangerous part of London. Though much ink has been spilled exploring the particulars of these unsolved murders and the possible identity of the perpetrator, less attention has been paid to the victims t [...]

    3. David Bridges

      Say Anything But Your Prayers is a dark gothic novel set in London during the period of the serial murderer Jack The Ripper. I want to confess here that I really don't know a lot of London during that period of time and I don't know much about Jack The Ripper either. One thing I do know is Alan Clark writes in a way that despite not knowing the historical context of the Ripper murders it is a very enjoyable experience to read. Ripper is actually such a small part of this book and yet he's everyt [...]

      This historical novel by Alan M. Clark is about Elizabeth Stride, who is believed to be one of the victims of Jack the Ripper. It begins with her childhood on a farm in Sweden and ends with her last days in the streets of London, a once adventurous young girl turned desperate, middle-aged prostitute.Not strictly adhering to what is known about her, Clark delivers a compelling portrait that examines how a woman in Elizabeth’s circumstances can rush toward disaster in the pursuit of happiness. R [...]

      I generally read everything in a book - the preface, the introduction, the author's note - everything. I find that these extras give me insight into the book as well as into the writer's intent. The author's note in SAY ANYTHING BUT YOUR PRAYERS has confirmed what I thought while reading the other three books in the Jack the Ripper Victim series. These are not novels of the crime and the criminal but rather of the women who only became known to the world by dying at his hand. I use the masculine [...]

    6. Susie

      Say Anything But Your Prayers’ is inspired by the life of Elizabeth Stride, the third victim of Jack the Ripper.Elizabeth was one of two women killed in one night by the killer known as Jack the Ripper. But this book is not about her death but her life and Alan gives the reading a very believable all be it sad and tragic story. The reader follows Elizabeth from her humbles beginnings in Sweden then on to her life and death in London. It's hard to believe that is historical fiction because it i [...]

      Say Anything But Your Prayers is the second novel in Alan M. Clark’s Jack the Ripper Victims Series (the first being Of Thimble and Threat: The Life of a Ripper Victim). The first thing that needs to be said about these books is that they are not your usual hack-and-slash Jack-attack novel, they are far from it and much, much more. The focus of these novels is not on the crimes of Jack the Ripper, but rather on the lives and choices of his victims. In doing this Clark is producing books that a [...]

      Alan M. Clark is better known for his beautiful award winning covers and illustrations that have been in the interior and the covers of works from authors ranging from Stephen King to Cody Goodfellow. His art is amazing but many forget that he was also nominated for a Bram Stoker award for co-writing Siren Promised with Jeremy Robert Johnson. Alan of course has his artists eye for detail and has written historical horror before.This book is the second in a groundbreaking series that explores the [...]
