The Blood Strand

A Faroes Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 21, 2015 – Police detective Jan Reyna, the sympathetic narrator of this psychologically astute series launch from British author Ould (Road Lines), returns to his place of birth, the Faroe island of T rshavn, to visit his father, Signar Ravnsfjall, now suffering from a stroke and incapable of speech, whom he has seen only once in 40 years. When Jan was young, his mother, Lydia, left Signar, taking him to England, where an aunt adopted him at age five after Lydia's death. Jan hopes to learn in T rshavn about his past, particularly why Lydia left Signar. After arriving, Jan discovers that Signar was found unconscious at the side of a road in an area he rarely frequented. In Signar's car were splashes of someone else's blood, a recently fired shotgun, and a large amount of cash. The subsequent discovery of a corpse, its face riddled with shotgun pellets, raises the ante. The plot takes many unexpected twists en route to the satisfying ending.
