Product Description

The enthralling new Burren mystery . . . April 1511, Ireland. Mara, Brehon of the Burren, is celebrating the christening of her son when she notices that three of her law students have disappeared from the party. The next morning, one of them is found dead on a lone mountain pass with suspicious wounds. He was carrying an important legal document that has now disappeared. But why did he choose to deliver it during the night, and what of the two other missing students? Mara must uncover the truth – and it at first seems that the stolen deed holds all the answers . . .

Cora Harrison's series about the Burren is a real winner. I can picture the landscape so easily through her words and the twists and turns of the plot are good reading. Difficult to put down.

1.0 out of 5 stars utterly disappointing 10 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have no idea which book the other reviewers read but this book is utterly disappointing.
So far I have read the Burren series with great joy but this book is way short of meeting any literary standard.

The first 3/4 of the book is slow and tedious and no real story line will develop only to finish in a break-neck speed for the last 1/4 of the book with unbelievable events.

There are many mistakes in the book which are very annoying to the observant reader.

This book appears to me to be the result of a greedy publisher who asked several people try to to write in the style of Cora Harrison just to throw out more books of a successful series to make the most of it as long as it lasts.

Beware of any series where a book had been published at a rate of a book per year and all of a sudden there are 3 or even 4 in the same year.

Sad really as I loved Cora Harrison's books so far.

I am not sure if I will try any further books.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this series of Books 20 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can only buy these books now and again as even for my Kindle they are not the cheapest, but when I can spare a little extra to spend on a book its one of these can recommend this series I love murder mystery and this set in the time of Henry VIII gives it an extra edge.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read. 22 Oct 2012
We love Cora Harrison's books and this series is no exception. Set in Ireland at the time of Henry the Eighth, it is fascinating to see the differences between English law at that time and the Brehon law system which had been used in most of Ireland for centuries. Historical facts and information about the period are cleverly woven into a fictional story line and the books are easy to read and most enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deed of Murder:An Excellent Read 12 Jan 2014
By plb3 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Number seven in this series, this novel plots the happenings of the Burren about nine months after the conclusion of the last book. Mara, the Brehon of three kingdoms, is finding that it can be very stressful balancing her multiple roles: mother to a 1-year old, chief judge for the king's territory, and investigator of all serious crimes. When a usually simple bidding for a flax business becomes confusing and deadly, Mara enlists her law school students in investigating the crime. When it turns out that two of her students have mysterious ties to the murder, she has to muster all of her powers of logic and intuition to find the criminals. Unfortunately her most trusted senior scholar suddenly disappears, and the new addition to the school , the beautiful and brilliant Fiona, turns out to an enigmatic romantic relationship to the first victim. The plot, as usual, is finely tuned and exciting, and the cast of characters continue to delight, and Mara's students and ward evolve and mature in realistic and believable ways. As the readers watch an apparently local murder morph into a plot with serious implications for the kingdom's relationship to England (and the king's health), they also learn much about Irish law and culture during the reign of Henry the Eighth, whose attitudes towards women, property, tortue and imprisonment are quite incompatible with traditional Irish law.
This is an excellent read. I know it kept me up way beyond my usual bedtime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deed of Murder 13 Mar 2013
By Berys Rowe - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story is about English noblemen wanting to take over the Burren by bribing Irish nobles. Mara is involved with the christening of her baby son when three law students go missing and one is murdered in unusual circumstances. As events unfold the treachery of those close to her husband, King Turlough are revealed. A very enthralling mystery which held my interest to the end and another enjoyable story in the series.

Cora Harrison has written another great Burren mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end. The clues were there to solving the mystery, but I missed them. I love the historical info about ancient Ireland gained from her books!

Great historical mystery with well developed characters. Enjoyed the entire series developed from the Burren laws in the 1500s. Very interesting to read of the application of such laws within interesting plots. Recommend.
