Book Description

THE SISTER FIDELMA 20th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION brings together the stunning first three novels in the widely acclaimed Sister Fieldma series. Escape into the evocative world of seventh-century Ireland and the time of the Celts, and join Sister Fidelma on the suspenseful trail of three murder mysteries.



ABSOLUTION BY MURDER: It's 664AD and the tension between the Celtic and Roman Churches is at boiling point. There are whispers of assassinations and a string of gruesome deaths. When Abbess Etain, a leading speaker for the Celtic Church, is found murdered, Sister Fidelma is called in to investigate. With the threat of a civil war just around the corner, can the mysteries be solved in time?



SHROUD FOR THE ARCHBISHOP: The archbishop designate of Canterbury is found garrotted in Rome's Lateran Palace. With Brother Ronan Ragallach spotted fleeing the scene of the crime, the person responsible appears to have been found. There are rumours, though, that the crime is political and precious treasure has been stolen. It is up to Sister Fidelma to determine whether Brother Ronan is innocent, and prevent a perilous war between the Saxon and Irish kingdoms.



SUFFER LITTLE CHILDREN: The Venerable Dac�n, beloved scholar of the Celtic Church, is brutally slain on his visit to the Irish Kingdom of Muman. When a neighbouring kingdom demands reparation for Dac�n's foul death, bloody war seems imminent. There are sinister forces at work and Sister Fidelma is summoned by Muman's dying king to investigate. Can she solve the mystery and prevent further turmoil?

I was looking forward to a good read, but agree with another reviewer that the characters are very underdeveloped - I found it hard to get interested in them. Also, as far as I managed to get in my reading of the book, no character seemed capable of anything but haughty, angry, sneering emotions, there was no kindness or joy in any of them. A pretty nasty lot, and a pretty unbalanced view of human nature and emotions. Even in a murder mystery, one of my favourite genres, there needs to be a few good, kindly characters, and some humour and a bit of light relief. Abbess Hilda reminded me of the White Witch. If Tremayne's depth of understanding of History is on a par with his depth of understanding of Christianity, it isn't up to much. His novel seemed to me to be profoundly Anti Christian.
I hated it, requested and got an e-delete and a refund.

A fascinating series of books set in 7thC Ireland. This is a time when women's rights were far in advance of any time up to 20thC Bruhan law should be the basis for all laws. This was ruined by the arrival of the Normans.

really interresting story line with insight into 7th century way of life
surprisingly in Ireland then women were more respected and could rise to great
heights in law and other areas,I love a murder mystery and this series is
addictive.Sister Fidelma 's friendship with the Brother grew gradually but they became true friends.
