5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and Compelling, 21 Jan. 2002
This book is one of the most addictive I've read. Peter Tremayne's knowledge of the Celtic world has allowed him to create a set of characters which are extremely vivid and life-like. By mixing in historical characters such as King Oswy of Northumbria, and by setting it during the Synod of Whitby, his story becomes even more realistic. The plot is as exciting as it is historically detailed. In 664 AD at the Synod of Whitby reprentatives of the Roman and Celtic churches met to decide if the North of England should follow the rule of Rome or Columba (the Celtic church). Before the debate starts the main speaker of the Celtic church is murderd. Suspicion falls on the Roman faction, but is it that simeple? Fidelma thinks not. Another murder follows and it looks like it's been solved, but then another murder is committed and Fidelma must finally confront the killer in true 'Agatha Christie drawing-room' style. I could tell you the whole plot, but I won't - GO BUY THIS BOOK!! Highly recommended. Keep up the good work Mr Tremayne.
