Another Masterpiece from the Dark Ages !
on 2 October 1999
Following on from the events of "Absolution by Murder", Sister Fidelma has journeyed to Rome, where she becomes embroiled in the events surrounding the murder of the candidate for the position of Archbishop of Canterbury. Once again Peter Tremayne effortless recreates a world at once alien to use, yet at times strangely familiar. If anything this novel is even better than Fidelma's debut story and it is interesting to see the developing relationship between Eadulf and Fidelma, from opposite sides of the Christian spectrum, and yet drawn towards a kindred spirit in each other. As with his other novels, the author manages to combine a superbly tense mystery, with historical accuracy, making the novels both entertaining and educational. Keep up the excellent storytelling, Mr Tremayne !!!
