"Having left the Faroes as a child, Jan Reyna is now a British police detective, and the islands are foreign to him. But he is drawn back when his estranged father is found unconscious with a shotgun by his side and someone else's blood at the scene. Then a man's body is washed up on an isolated beach. Is Reyna's father responsible? Looking for answers, Reyna falls in with local detective Hjalti Hentze. But as the stakes get higher and Reyna learns more about his family and the truth behind his mother's flight from the Faroes, he must decide whether to stay, or to forsake the strange, windswept islands for good."--Provided by publisher

The crux of it all ... money, even in the Faroe Islands. No matter how isolated and insular the society, settling debts is not optional. Scheming begins and the ground one stands on becomes a very slippery slope. Collateral damage spreads. The Blood Strand ... a modest, readable tale.

The first book in the Faroes series

Really enjoyed this. It's not a flashy thriller but rather an intricate, thoughtful police procedural that introduces 2 intriguing MC's.
The setting provides an atmospheric backdrop that adds to the slowly rising tension as the case progresses & old family secrets are revealed for one of the detectives.
For fans of Ann Cleeves "Shetland" & Peter May's "Blackhouse" series. I'll definitely be looking for book #2.

Very new & sounds interesting, so if it's successful with lots of requests...maybe an ebook will come to SPL for people who are unable to read tiny tiny print.
