Summary

The year is 1861 and Inspector Faro is heading back to Orkney to enjoy some home comforts. However, his rest is disrupted when he is given a special assignment from an old friend, Detective Superintendent Macfie. Macfie’s cousin-in-law, Dave Claydon, a champion swimmer, has drowned under mysterious circumstances. Was his death really an accident?

Arriving in Orkney, he is met with rumours of missing artefacts, the myth of the seal king, a dead body, Inga St Ola (his first love), and a mother who is determined to find him a wife. But, in Faro’s opinion, no matter how distracting the local legends are, or how valuable the artefacts, one man’s life is truly beyond price. Will he be able to solve the case?
