The Fire Pit (Faroes Novel 3)

The Fire Pit (Faroes Novel 3)

Location(s): The Faroe Islands, Denmark

Genre(s): Fiction, Mystery

Era(s): Present looking back to 1970s

When long-buried skeletal remains are unearthed at an isolated farm on the island of Borðoy, Hjalti Hentze is charged with investigating the death. But as Hentze s investigation turns to the commune which occupied the farm in the 1970s, Jan Reyna discovers a connection to the death of his mother and to long-repressed memories from his childhood. Increasingly driven to exorcise his personal demons, Reyna pursues an ever-darker conspiracy of murder and abuse spanning four decades, from the Faroes to Denmark and back. However, as Hentze puts the same pieces together, he has a growing realisation that Reyna may be about to follow a course of action from which there can be no return.
