DARKER ENDS is the third title by Alex Nye, again inspired by the landscape and history of Scotland.

This time Glencoe is the background setting, and the ghosts of the recent past mingle with the dark events of 1692, when the leader of Clan Campbell authorized the genocide of a whole community as they slept in their beds before dawn...Those who survived - women and children - struggled their way up into the lowering mountains of Glencoe, but what happened to them?

Did they live to tell the tale?Two children, a brother and sister, wait in a lonely inn for their parents to come home, while a storm closes in.

They have only lived at the inn for three days. Maggie, the eldest, seeks to reassure her younger brother, who is asthmatic and nervous.

When a stranger's car is marooned in the river below, and he knocks at their door for shelter, the long night darkens.

All is not what it seems, and Maggie and Rory are about to learn what became of the so-called 'survivors' of Glencoe.
