Publisher's Summary

In the year of our Lord 1141, civil war over England's throne leaves a legacy of violence, and the murder of a knight dear to Brother Cadfael. And with the gentle bud-strewn May, a flood of pilgrims comes to the celebration of Saint Winifred at the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, carrying with it many strange souls, and perhaps the knight's killer.

Brother Cadfael's shrewd eyes see all: the prosperous merchant who rings false, an angelic lame boy, his beautiful dowerless sister, and two wealthy penitents.

©1984 Ellis Peters; (P)2000 Blackstone Audiobooks

What the Critics Say

"Peters continues to provide the type of superior medieval mystery that has spawned a host of unabashed imitations." (Booklist)

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "I should have listerned to the later version"

    This Medieval murder mystery (12th century) is available in two versions from Audible. I selected the wrong one! It would be impossible to overstate how horrid the narration is. The voice is very, very wrong and narration is drastically over performed.

    This is the 10th book in the immensely popular 21 book (and TV series) Brother Cadfael mysteries written by Edith Pargeter using the pen name Ellis Peters. The books in the series were released between 1977 and 1994.

    "Impossible to listen to!"

    I listen to, rather than reading, books for the added enjoyment of a great narration. I gave this one 10 minutes - should have read and believed the reviews. Hope I can return this one. Truly awful.

    "truly terrible narrator"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    most annoying reading I've ever suffered through. Had to turn it off after 10 minutes.


    Would you recommend The Pilgrim of Hate to your friends? Why or why not?

    not with this reader


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Roe Kendall?

    anyone who doesn't make all the characters sound like half-wits
