Three Little Birds Summary

Three Little Birds by Sam Blake

'Griptastic!' Liz Nugent

Two decades of secrets. One shocking discovery...

When a skull is found in Lough Coyne, facial reconstruction expert Dr Carla Steele is drawn into a fourteen-year-old case - but not all cases are cold, as Carla discovers when she and DS Jack Maguire find the brutally murdered body of a local woman close to the water's edge.

Together with Carla's partner, criminal psychologist Grace Franciosi, Carla and Jack uncover a tragic story with very dangerous and current implications.

Since the disappearance of her best friend, Carla has dedicated her career to bringing the dead home, but this time it's the living who are counting on her. In a race to save another woman, will they be able to stop the killer in time?

Three Little Birds Reviews

I was totally absorbed in this mystery - Sam Blake blends complex plotting with clever characterisation and a total mastery of forensic investigation that gives her work great authenticity. Three Little Birds is as immersive and chilling as lake water itself. I had to know how it was going to end! -- Jane Casey
Once again, Sam Blake has created a wonderfully complicated protagonist in Carla Steele, a tenacious and whipsmart facial reconstruction expert. As Carla puts flesh on the bones of a skull, Blake adds layers to the skeleton of the story with vivid characterisation and intriguing plotting. She is as forensic as her character and this story is told so authentically that it feels like a real life investigation told in real time. Griptastic! -- Liz Nugent
Pacy, immersive and wholly absorbing, Three Little Birds hooks you from the first page right through to the nail-biting end. This is Sam Blake at her masterful best. -- Andrea Mara
A gripping and fascinating read with a generous helping of those expert forensic and procedural nuggets that Sam Blake's many fans have come to expect. More please! -- Catherine Kirwan
Peopled by fantastic characters -- Sarah Hilary
Compelling characters, a gripping plot, and fascinating forensic details -- Roz Watkins
Incredibly detailed expert knowledge combines with a brilliantly gripping plot and sensitively drawn characters to create a fast paced, compelling mystery. Utterly captivating! -- Victoria Dowd
