Product description


"From debut author Clerge comes a novel about one man's quest to survive prison and find answers within himself. The prison fear is vivid, the odds insurmountable and the conclusion anyone's guess, though it certainly won't come easily. An arresting prison tale about penance."
―Kirkus Reviews

"The characters have real depth―something I am big on―and the drama on the pages made me feel as though I was right there watching it. The book is fast paced and, in my opinion, downright amazing."
―Bobbie Grob, Readers' Favorite

"This character orientated drama benefits from a fully fleshed out protagonist, gritty writing, and psychological insight into a realistic psyche. The obvious sequel has a high bar to surpass... When the Serpent Bites is a fantastic read for legal buffs, crime lovers, and readers who love a great story."
―John Murray, Pacific Book Review

"Nesly Clerge spins a convoluted web of human dynamics and sinister situations in his debut novel. Clerge's careful attention to character development and the cast's interactions with Starks is a main ingredient that keeps his story flowing. Clerge's cliffhanging chapters continually tickle the curiosity of thriller aficionados to keep turning pages to see what the final outcome will be. Clerge also maintains plot fluidity by alternating character scenes, backstories, and a plethora of twisted and suspenseful events."
―San Francisco Book Review

"I have to first comment on the writing. It was amazing. This author threw everything into this novel, clever hooks, masterfully written characters and an extremely deep plot."
--J. Kahele, Author of the Violet Chain Series

"For me this is a very strong character driven book. It has an intense focus on the main character Starks, whom I loved to hate and had many conflicted thoughts and feelings about as the book weaved it's way from start to finish. It engaged me mentally, kept me alert and had me reading past the words on the page."
--Maxine Groves, Booklover Catlady

"The plot is engrossing, in the sense, one could feel involved as a silent spectator as the story progressed."
--Rajalakshmi Prithviraj, Author of Silence Under the Blue Sky

"The story itself is a smooth flowing style that delves into multiple points of view to allow us to see the various angles and thoughts of different characters."
--C. P. Bialois, Author of The Forging

"It's a tasty read that keeps your juices salivating as a bookworm, as anyone who likes a brilliant all around story."
--SueWard, Read Along With Sue Blog

"You will hit the ground running, and as the strength of the characters, and their personalities pull you along. Absolutely riveting dialogue, gruesome action at times and a feeling of being there."
--TomeTender Blog
