BOOK 1 -- When The Serpent Bites "Downright Amazing." ―Bobbie Grob, Readers' Favorite "A fascinating read." ―John Murray, Pacific book review "A plethora of twisted and suspenseful events." ―San Francisco Book Review "An arresting prison tale about penance.” ―Kirkus Reviews Frederick Starks has it all—a gorgeous wife who was his high school sweetheart, three beautiful children, a mansion and cars others envy, millions in the bank, respected in his community, admired by his employees, loved and respected by loyal friends. He revels in the hard-earned power and control he’s acquired. As the saying goes, “All that glitters is not gold,” which Starks discovers when gut-wrenching betrayal by his wife sends him over the edge and into a maximum security prison. There, Starks is a new “fish,” stripped of nearly everything he’s always relied on. In that place, where inmates and guards have their own rules and codes of conduct, Starks is forced to face the darker side of life, and his own darker side, especially when the betrayals, both inside and outside the prison, don’t stop. He must choose which path to follow when the line between right and wrong becomes blurred: one that leads to getting out of the physical and emotional hellhole he finds himself in or one that keeps him alive. BOOK 2 -- When The Dragon Roars "When the Dragon Roars is an absolutely riveting read, full of surprising twists and turns and brilliant writing. The chapters are short; the dialogue realistic; the characters believable and the plot gripping." —Viga Boland, Readers' Favorite "With tight, crisp prose and realistic dialogue, the author keeps the pace of his tome moving at highway speed. His characters are finely etched both physically and emotionally. Clerge knows the story he wants to tell, and he tells it in a way that is both involving and entertaining." —Joe Kilgore, Pacific Book Review "Brimming with twists, turns, and non-stop drama, When The Dragon Roars by Nesly Clerge is a thriller ideal for any fan of prison-noir." —Veronica Alvarado, Bestseller's World Secrets and lies force their way to the surface in Nesly Clerge’s newest novel of deception, crime, and buried history. Frederick Starks thought he’d already lost as much as one man could: A beautiful family, the luxurious life wealth provides, success, admiration—all stripped from him in one moment of madness that resulted in a fifteen-year sentence in a maximum security prison. Certain that life has gotten as bad as it can get, Starks contrives a way to rise to the top of the inmate hierarchy. But his assumption is wrong. Amid stunning revelations, betrayals, and violence, Starks faces one challenge after another, until a life-altering event forces him into the most brutal confrontation of all: the truth about himself. ...

The Starks Trilogy (Book 1 & 2) Reviews
This is one wild trilogy, powerful and so full of twists it leaves you guessing all the way to the end. Starks is a complex character, fascinating even if not always likeable. Watching him persevere through a self-inflicted nightmare of betrayal, regret, and simmering rage has been an absolute blast.Nesly Clerge writes skillfully, blending gritty realism and thoughtful human psychology to create a complex plot and vivid characters. This trilogy already has 4 novels (if you include The Anatomy of Cheating). How about a fifth?
When The Serpents Bites (Book 1): This is the tale of entrepreneur Fredrick Starks early years of a 15 year sentence at Sands Correctional Facility. It showcases his rise to power while serving time in a maximum security prison. It's a very good novel. 7/13-15.When The Dragon Roars (Book 2): Fredrick Starks was stabbed up by his cellmate, Jackson, with a gang led by Beon (Bo) Jones. One by one, his enemies were picked off and killed. Charges were never pressed against Starks by Investigative Officer Spenser of the Council. He had it in for the inmate. Though, many others in prison knew the truth, all went by the old jail house motto "snitches get stitches." Fredrick had CO's and inmates on his payroll, plus he was the new plug for lucrative cell phone business which is considered illegal contraband. He's the leader of the Dragon gang and runs things in Sands Correctional Facility. This novel just gets better and better. 7/15-16.I plan to read the last story in this trilogy, When The Dragon Strikes.
Interesting Tale ... NOT what I expected ...... and, I'm not sure what to make of the book's (?series?) plot. Stark is a conceited, self-righteous egomaniac who has been thrown in jail. Unfortunately, he is also a rich prick who gets his own way, no matter the cost to those around him. Yikes! What a character to base a trilogy on!
WowThe twist and turns just kept coming. Could not stop reading and looking forward to the next book in this series.
This is an amazing series by a new author. Starkes commits a crime of passion/OCD (depending on your point of view) and life goes down hill from there. Like the Biblical Lott, it's as though the devil is purposely toying with him. I can't wait for book three. Hope it doesn't take a year to write.
