The Dark Isle
The Dark Isle Clare Carson
 Sam Coyle Trilogy, 3

Sam grew up in the shadow of the secret state. Her father was an undercover agent, full of tall stories about tradecraft and traitors. Then he died, killed in the line of duty.

Now Sam has travelled to Hoy, in Orkney, to piece together the puzzle of her father's past. Haunted by echoes of childhood holidays, Sam is sure the truth lies buried here, somewhere.

What she finds is a tiny island of dramatic skies, swooping birds, rugged sea stacks and just four hundred people. An island remote enough to shelter someone who doesn't want to be found. An island small enough to keep a secret...

'Another great addition to this beautifully written series, and I would recommend all three books heartily. Great storytelling, pitch perfect plotting, and a wonderful sense of time and place. Highly recommended'
Raven Crime Reads
'Great characters ... Carson shows how everyone has both good and bad sides to them, a great insight to human nature and how people react when pushed to extremes, a great read for sitting on the beach or by the pool'

Bookish Jottings
I loved this book! ... Sam Coyle is a magnificent character and is phenomenally written. The dynamics between her and the other characters, particularly Anna, were fantastic'
Rambling Lisa's Book Reviews
I absolutely loved the writing, the concept of this book and the main character... [Coyle's] emotional journey is quite mesmerizing to read. The grief is just heartbreaking but she is determined and moves ahead on her quest'
