    The Last Refuge
    Craig Robertson - Paperback - Simon & Schuster
    The Faroe Islands. Forty-nine thousand people. Seventy thousand sheep. Eighteen islands. Nineteen connecting tunnels. Four traffic lights. One murder in twenty-five years. Until now. When Ryan arrives on the Faroe Islands, determined to sever all ties with his previous life and make a new start, he is surprised by how quickly he is welcomed into the close-knit community. He soon finds a job in the fishing industry and makes friends - and enemies. But no matter what he changes in his outward life, the debilitating nightmares that haunt Ryan's dreams just won't leave him alone. Then the sleepy peace is shattered by an almost unheard of crime on the Island. Murder. A specialist team of detectives will have to be brought in all the way from Denmark to help the local police, who are completely ill-equipped for a manhunt of this scale.

    Ralph A. Hartmann - Hardback - Haralex

  • Cover scan of Language Planning As A Sociolinguistic Experiment
    Language Planning As A Sociolinguistic Experiment: The Case Of Modern Norwegian
    Ernst HaĚŠkon Jahr - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    2014 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Norwegian nation following centuries of Danish rule. This book gives a comprehensive account of that entire 200-year period, and analyses how Norwegians defined, fought over, and developed their own independent Scandinavian language, differentiating it from Danish and Swedish, through language planning. The almost two centuries of Norwegian language planning and conflict encompassed an extraordinary sociolinguistic experiment which led to decades of intense linguistic struggle and which has had no parallel anywhere else in the world. This book-length case study provides students and scholars in sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, language planning and language policy with a richly detailed insight into the uniqueness of the Norwegian language development.

So, with the gold still unclaimed, and the bones of a hundred men scattered around it, Trip Kincaid's disappearance is cause for alarm.
