    This collection includes the first three novels in Chris Ould's Faroes series. These page-turning novels are full of atmospheric tension as native Faroese Detective Jan Reyna returns to the islands after a stint in Britain.

    The Blood Strand has Jan's father being found unconscious with a shotgun by his side and someone else's blood in his car. This prompts Jan to make his return home but then another man's body is found with a shotgun wound in his side. However, all the evidence points to him being suffocated...

    The Killing Bay has a group of activists arriving on the Islands in an attempt to stop the traditional whale hunts. A woman is found murdered but Jan and local detective Hjalti Hentze become aware that evidence is being hidden from them; and The Fire Pit has the skeletal remains of a child being unearthed at an isolated farm. The investigation turns to the commune that occupied the farm in the 1970s - and there's a link to Jan's mother's death.
