With Peters' books it's not just the mystery that matters .,
This review is from: The First Cadfael Omnibus: A Morbid Taste for Bones, One Corpse Too Many, Monk's-Hood (Paperback)
Ellis Peters' writing is impeccable. She evokes a magical historical period when men and women were honourable and brave, and believed in justice and truth. A far cry from today's reality. The "who-dunnit" element of her books is really secondary to the rich tapestry of description and dialogue which she weaves as she tells her tale. Stellar.
