Publisher's Summary

Wealthy, talented Arthur Rainbow was a guaranteed success. But there was one place he hadn't expected to end up, and that was beneath the steeple of St. Eata's church, his body smashed like a cracked walnut. Superintendent George Felse is charged with sifting through a long list of suspects to catch the killer.

A little bored.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I gave this book a try because I like Ellis Peters' Cadfael series. It didn't quite live up to expectations. It was maybe too staid and English for me. I thought it neither thrilling nor twisty-turney enough. It may be that I like the Cadfael series better because of the historical novel nature. I like stories set in times with which I have not or little knowledge.

Would you be willing to try another book from Ellis Peters? Why or why not?

Probably

Which scene was your favorite?

Breaking through the wall.

Did Rainbow's End inspire you to do anything?

NO
