When a group of international activists arrive on the Faroe Islands, intent on stopping the traditional whale hunts, tensions between islanders and protestors run high. And when a woman is found viciously murdered only hours after a violent confrontation, the circumstances seem purposely designed to increase animosity between the two sides.

For Faroese detective Hjalti Hentze and DI Jan Reyna the case quickly exposes personal connections and conflicts of interest. But as they dig deeper it becomes increasingly clear that the murder has other, more sinister aspects to it. Knowing evidence is being hidden from them and faced with deception on all sides, neither Reyna or Hentze know who to trust, or how far some people might go to defend their beliefs.

Industry Reviews
"As the action builds to a thoughtful and satisfying resolution, Ould plants the seeds of the conclusion to his Faroes trilogy, which fans will eagerly anticipate." - Publisher's Weekly Starred Review "An absorbing literary procedural for readers who prize an exotic sense of place." - Booklist "Ould's strange, remote setting and the even stranger people make for an intriguing read, especially combined with a hero who is almost as prickly as his forefathers and yet manages to solve even the most complex crimes." - Library Journal "Masterful...a thoroughly fun read with an unusual setting, great dialogue, excellent major and minor characters and a captivating storyline. Highly recommended." - Bookgasm "an interesting mystery on its own merits. The background of the Faroes is an added bonus, giving it a unique flavor. I definitely recommend it." - The Soap Boxers "A tense thriller....a particularly delightful read for readers who crave for stories similar to those of Henning Mankell and Elizabeth George." - Mystery Tribune "a commanding, almost otherworldly, setting, and the author certainly knows how to bring it to life" Kittling Books "A subtle and satisfying read; absolutely pick this one up for the fascinating weave of multiple storylines and bleak atmosphere - another must-read in a brilliant series" The Crime Review
