Jim is an undercover policeman with alcohol issues and the gift of the gab - but he never talks about his past. His daughter Sam is a rebellious 18-year-old with an inquisitive streak. She is determined to find out the truth about her father. On holiday in Orkney, beneath an endless midsummer sky, 18-year-old Sam shadows her father Jim as he runs secretive errands across the island. What did he take from the old watchtower on the edge of a cliff? Why is he so interested in Norse mythology? And why does Sam have the eerie feeling that she too is being shadowed? When Sam finally discovers the truth, it will draw her into a dangerous world of deception and double-dealing - and bring her closer to her dad than ever before.

Unbeknownst, we travel the borderland between credulity and revelation, seeking meaning and validation. Furthermore, for Sam Coyle, the landscape is bereft of signposts and fogged by her immaturity. Still, happenstance provides a sufficient glimmer for Sam to accept "that truth was little more than fool's gold and there were no solid facts in this world ...". Clare Carson has woven Orkney Twilight as an introspective, but satisfyingly not maudlin, tale. Just the ticket for laid back, unhurried reading of intrigue.
