Synopsis:

Atticus Wynn and Rosemary Sanchez, newly engaged private investigators, have seen the dark and violent side of life. Nothing, though, has prepared them for an explosive murder investigation that threatens to tear their relationship apart as they struggle to solve a case that could leave them in prison or dead.
Atticus’s manipulative ex-girlfriend bursts back into their lives wielding a secret about Rosemary’s family that she exploits to force the couple into investigating theexecution-style slaying of her lover. The case thrusts Atticus and Rosemary headlong into the world of human trafficking and drug smuggling, while rendering them pawns in Tijuana Cartel captain Armando Villanueva’s bloody bid to take overthe cartel.
The Black Song Inside is a vivid crime thriller rife with murder and madness, melded with gallows humor and the heroism of two flawed and compelling protagonists who, if they can save themselves, may learn the nature of redemption and the ability to forgive.
Review:
Having lived in San Diego and having visited Tijuana many times, I was interested to see how the author handled the 2 settings.He more than rose to the occasion- all the writing is so descriptive, you will feel like you are right there in the story! Clark's writing reminded me of an earlier Alex Cross (whose books I love) and the characters will stay with you long after you put the book down, which you will NOT be able to do- I had to force myself to read it in 2 sittings! It is such a great rollers coaster of a mystery, taking you on different paths and then back again, so that you're eagerly flipping pages and holding your breath! This is an astounding debut novel, and I'll be looking for more books from the author!

If you're looking for a new name in the mystery fiction field, check out this book and Carlyle Clark!


About the Author:
Carlyle Clark was raised in Poway, a city just north of San Diego, but is now a proud Chicagolander working in the field of Corporate Security and writing crime and fantasy fiction. He has flailed ineffectually at performing the writer’s requisite myriad of random jobs: pizza deliverer, curb address painter, sweatshop laborer, day laborer, night laborer, security guard, campus police, Gallup pollster, medical courier, vehicle procurer, and signature-for-petitions-getter.
He is a married man with two cats and a dog. He is also a martial arts enthusiast and a CrossFit endurer who enjoys fishing, sports, movies, TV series with continuing storylines, and of course, reading. Most inconsequentially, he holds theunrecognized distinction of being one of the few people in the world who have been paid to watch concrete dry in the dark. Tragically, that is a true statement.
