A novel by


"A strong new voice in American crime fiction."

"A harrowing non-stop thrill ride."
Michael Prescott

"Dark Side of the Moon takes you on a perilous descent into a shadowy underworld where light cannot reach, trust can be fatal, and the deepest truth is only another lie. Once again J. Carson Black delivers a harrowing nonstop thrill ride that will eclipse every other suspense novel you read this year!"
- New York Times Bestselling Author MICHAEL PRESCOTT

Laura Cardinal: Packs a SIG Sauer P226 9mm. Investigates homicides in small towns that have limited resources. Brings justice to murder victims - and to their killers. Laura's job description: Criminal Investigator with the Arizona Department of Public Safety. But maybe it should just say "Troubleshooter."

When two newlyweds are found murdered at an Arizona campground, Laura Cardinal is enlisted to investigate. Still reeling from a tragedy of her own, teamed with a partner who's working her last nerve, and with no solid leads, Laura's already walking an emotional tightrope.

Then she meets the locals who greet her questions with silence and paranoia. The lies Laura uncovers create a chilling portrait of the dark side of love. And when she discovers one victim's ties to an underground organization, she is plunged into a high-stakes conspiracy played out against the unforgiving backdrop of the Mojave Desert, where there are no second chances . . . .
