After much anticipation, The Black Song Inside, e-book and paperback, are finally available! The audio book is scheduled to debut on December 3, 2013.
What’s it about? 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.
Praise for The Black Song Inside

“This author mesmerized me with this story. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down. The relationship between Atticus and Rosemary was very well described throughout.” —Fred Newtz
“Clark infuses The Black Song Inside with intelligent, wry and deftly integrated comment on a society where the breakdown of the state makes everyone a combatant, willing or no…The action is fast and furious. The writing is vibrant, expressive, sometimes even lyrical. Clark has a way with metaphor—his are just as they should be; creative, unexpected juxtapositions, working hard to describe and deliver on physical threat and emotional tension.” —Libris Reviews
