Product Description

Review

HEMLOCK AT VESPERS

'This collection is an essential canonical text for Sister Fidelma acolytes' Publisher's Weekly

'Fidelma's fans will welcome this first-ever collection, many stories of which are appearing here for the first time' Kirkus Reviews

'A treasure trove of small gems for historical mystery fans' Booklist

'A complex mesh of betrayals that also catch up the sleuth, exploiting both Fidelma's strengths and vulnerabilities' Kirkus Reviews

'Beguiling' Peterborough Evening Telegraph



ACT OF MERCY

'wonderfully evocative' The Times



VALLEY OF THE SHADOW

'Tremayne's discriminating sense of history distinguishing ever-finer conflicts...creates an equally complex mystery for history-mad readers with eyes as sharp as Fidelma's' Kikus Reviews



Praise for previous novels:

'The Sister Fidelma books give the readers a rattling good yarn. But more than that, they bring vividly and viscerally to life the fascinating lost world of the Celtic Irish. I put down The Spider's Web with a sense of satisfaction at a good story well told, but also speculating on what modern life might have been like had that civilisation survived' Ronan Bennett

'A heroine whom many readers will willingly follow' Kirkus Reviews;

'A brilliant and beguiling heroine. Immensely appealing, difficult to put down' PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY;

'Definitely an Ellis Peter competitor...the background detail is marvellous' EVENING STANDARD;

Book Description

In their eleventh mystery, Sister Fidelma and Brother Eadulf are confronted with a devastating and dangerous enigma

Format: Paperback
Peter Tremayne is the fiction pseudonym of a well-known authority on the ancient Celts, who has utilised his knowledge of the Brehon law system and 7th-Century Irish society to create a new concept in detective fiction.

The Sister Fidelma novels are taking on almost cult proportions and are becoming ever more popular with each offering from the author, whose obvious knowledge of the times and subjects he writes about shines out like a beacon on the shore.

As Sister Fidelma and Brother Eadulf are preparing to leave the shores of England and return to Ireland, they receive a mysterious summons from a boyhood friend of Eadulf, Brother Botulf. He has requested their presence at a nearby Abbey. Eadul and Fidelma battle their way through a winter storm to reach the Abbey, but when they arrive they find that Botulf is dead, killed by an unknown person. Staggered by the murder of his boyhood friend Eadulf, with the help of Fidelma search for the truth, but it soon becomes apparent that the death of Botulf is not the only trouble facing the abbey.

The whole series provides a snapshot of life in 7th century Ireland but this one was set in her companion's homeland... facinating to see the relationship between Fidelma and Eadamund develop with the backdrop of pagan and new faith. The laws and customs of that period shape the story and was a excellent ending to the mystery!

I really enjoyed this ebook. It held me until the end and I love the fact that although you know that there is another book to come it doesn't leave you thinking that there should be more.

Peter Tremayne is so expert in his field - he is a learning experience for anyone interested in ancient Irish/Roman theology.
