Book Description

In 1509, in the kingdom of the Burren, people lived according to the ancient customs and Brehon laws of their ancestors. The Michaelmas Fair: a time for trade and celebration. A chance for the people of the Burren to gather, buy and sell their wares and give tribute to the lord of their clans. When the steward of the MacNamara clan demands more, tempers run high. Then the steward’s body is found in the local churchyard; he’s been beaten to death. Was it revenge, greed or something more sinister that led to his murder? Mara tries to piece the puzzle together but, distracted by thoughts of the King’s surprising offer of marriage, nothing seems to make sense. Is Mara prepared to give up her position as Brehon to become Queen? And will she be able to bring the killer to justice before they strike again . . .

By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 15 July 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
This story deals with a lady Brehon judge in early Ireland. The setting is the limestone Burren area on the Atlantic shore.
At Michaelmas time a countryside chieftain collects a tribute from his followers. The man who goes around with the cart collecting is not popular and some say he gathers too much of goods.
A murder occurs on the dark lonely roads, amid jealousies, feuds and romances, and the lady lawgiver decides to investigate.

Mainly I thought the story could be improved by a map. At lot of the tale takes place in a few locations and on the roads between them, so if someone's alibi is that they were in a certain place at a certain time, a map would be very handy for the reader. You only really realise this as the book continues past the middle.

I have just found the first in the series (this is the second) and I am looking forward to making the acquaintance of the characters again.

This book is so well written that you can easily imagine yourself back in Ireland in the fifteenth century. The research done to produce this book was really great and all historical details are based on fact. Very well written.

Well researched and written story with engaging characters. Vividly portrayed scenery. The legal system in that part of Ireland was really fascinating and well portrayed.
