Publisher's Summary

Jan Reyna is a murder squad detective, British by adoption and choice, Faroese by birth and history. Called back to the remote Danish Faroe Islands when his father suffers a paralysing stroke, Reyna is forced to reexamine his decades-long rejection of the past and of his father in particular.
But in this now-foreign country, whose language and customs he no longer understands, Reyna is also drawn into a rare Faroese murder case. The crime seems to have Reyna's father at its centre, but investigating it inevitably brings Reyna closer to the childhood events he's purposely erased from his memory. He is also confronted by his half brothers, who have their own agenda and seem intent on protecting the family name from any implication of wrongdoing.
Reyna's choice, then, is either to push through the resistance and risk what he might reveal about his past or to forsake the strange, windswept Faroe Islands for good. His decision will change the lives of everyone around him, but the truths he's already uncovered can't be reburied.

excellent first book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, the characters are understated and interesting. The story is compelling. The writing and performance are excellent.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There are two characters that make me want to listen to the rest of this series and to whatever else this author offers--the Faroe Island dectective and the visiting British Detective. Both were introspective, non-hysterical, realistic characters.

What about Matt Addis’s performance did you like?

It was clear. The distinction between characters was clear. Everything about the performance was well done

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?


Any additional comments?

I hope Audible picks up the rest of the series and the rest of the author's novels.

Slow going

Despite an interesting location and good narration, Blood Strand failed to hold my interest. Maybe I'll try it again later.
