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.

"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!
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.
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.
most annoying reading I've ever suffered through. Had to turn it off after 10 minutes.
not with this reader
anyone who doesn't make all the characters sound like half-wits
