Format: Paperback
This is the fourteenth novel in Ellis Peters's Cadfael series, and if you've got this far, there's not much more to say! There is the usual well-written scene-setting, and the usual well-thought-through plot. It is interesting how the crime may appear solved, but there always remains open an issue that will suddenly - and convincingly - push matters along a new twisted path.

Peters's continues her good way with words, writing clearly and persuasively, and with an eye to informing too. For instance, of the settlements of Eaton and Eyton, she says there was "barely a mile between" them: "The very names sprang from the same root, though time had prised them apart, and the Norman passion for order and formulation had fixed and ratified the differences."

There is a rare and welcome faint whiff of homosexuality in this novel, with the young lad Hyacinth arousing a "slight stir of disquiet ... in those cloistered breasts". And, "What was an antique saint doing with an unnerving fairy thing in his employ?" It is surprising how Peters's never referred more often to the temptations of the same sex that all monasteries by their very nature must have had.

No doubt a few holes can be picked in this tale, for example it is strange to say the least that the hermit should be accepted and established as such so soon after arriving in the area, but Cadfael is such an enjoyable character that we can forgive such small matters. As usual, Peters employs well the ever-tolerant Cadfael as a lightning rod for the sense of the humane. So, when Hugh the Sheriff talks of black sheep, Cadfael argues that, "There are very few all black ... Dappled, perhaps ... most of us have a few mottles about us."

As for historical matters, the author always remains on sure ground.

I enjoyed this book, as it was full of action and mostly pleasant people. There was the usual romance and mystery and murder of course, but the complexity of the whole situation kept you on your toes and kept the interest going right to the end.

A child is being forced to marry, a holy man comes round with a forest fawn. A man is murdered and the confusion is total. However, Ellis Peters through the hand and mind of Brother Cadfael leads us to a logical and complete explanation of these extraordinary events. Betrayal is the word but who betrays who?

I enjoy these tales of a medieval monk who is a sleuth. There are enough references to life and how it was lived to make this a history experience as well as a murder mystery.

All is not sanctity or (politics for that matter) in either the monastic or solitary cell. Murder and intrigue challenge Cadfael and Hugh to reserve judgement for a time! .

Cadfael books are always good and I m working my way through them all. As for the actual delivery - I'm using ebook a- with amazon the process is simplicity itself.

I bought the set, though this will be standard wording - great plots, great character, great knowledge of the history and mediaeval mind-set, can't go wrong.

Although the ingredients of Ellis Peters' Cadfael stories are predictable - drama, suspense, a delicate love story - she always produced an unmissable read.
