Cadfael is asked to lay out the bodies and organise the claiming of the bodies by relatives. But there is one more body than he was told and he realises that this extra body has been murdered rather than being a judicial killing.
I am getting to like Cadfael as a character - he is calm and rational whatever the circumstances and he is intelligent and observant. I thought the plot was well constructed and it did keep me guessing and it was a shock when the murderer was revealed.
If you want to read one of the original historical crime series then Brother Cadfael is a must. This is the second book in the series.
The setting really does come alive on the page, and you'll feel safe and secure in that world with Brother Cadfael as your guide. I've enjoyed meeting every character in this series so far. This one shines in all categories: plot, characters, setting, and good writing. I wouldn't say any of them are taking the lead, leaving others behind. I feel this series can be compared to the The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. Both have good writing featuring warm, wise characters, and a setting with which you may be unfamiliar. There is humor, and you'll learn something along the way. You may not know what to expect, but you'll be glad you took the time to find out.
But when Brother Cadfael arrives and does a body count, there are 95 not 94. It soon becomes apparent that there is one corpse too many, 94 hanged men and one murdered man.
Brother Cadfael is given 4 days in which to solve and catch a murderer, before King Stephen moves on and allows the murderer to roam free.
This is the second of the Brother Cadfael mysteries, and is full of intrigue, mystery and romance.
Ellis Peters weaves a tapestry of the 12th century, drawing you in and holding you captive.
I love historical mysteries, and Ellis Peters is one of the best writers in this field. She has me returning back to her stories, time after time.
This was a audiobook, produced by Hachette Audio UK and downloaded via Audible.co.uk. Narrated by Stephen Thorne, whose rich voice, brings Brother Cadfael and the 12th century to life.
