Black Song Inside

Welcome to my Review of Black Song Inside by Carlyle Clark
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 the execution-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 over the 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
My Review:
Action, Thriller, Fast-Moving, Gritty, so many one word adjectives to describe this wonderful book.
Clark’s vivid and descriptive writing will have you to the point of feeling like you are watching a movie instead of reading a book. I love books that are so easily visual, they draw me in and I lose track of time.

Awesome characters! I love that the hero and heroine are not perfect.

Rosemary Sanchez is Atticus’s fiancĂ©e and she has lost a leg in the Iraq War. Like many vets, she still suffers PTSD, but she does not use it as a crutch or excuse.
Atticus Wynn Has a wonderful dry sense of humor which lightens the rest of the story.

The one secondary character that stands out for me is the Priest (not a good one), I won’t spoil it for you so when you read the novel just remember the Priest.
Atticus’s ex-lover blackmails him into helping her and all hell breaks loose. You can take the story from there.

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 the unrecognized 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.
