Sister Fidelma follows a trail that is as suspenseful as it is tortuous in the riveting third novel in Peter Tremayne's gripping series.
In the mid-7th century AD, the Venerable Dacán, a much respected and beloved scholar of the Celtic Church, has been found murdered while on a visit to a remote abbey in the Irish Kingdom of Muman. When Dacán's foul death is used by a neighbouring kingdom to demand reparation from Muman, bloody war seems imminent.
Summoned by Muman's dying king to investigate, Sister Fidelma is asked to solve the mystery of the brutal killing and by doing so to prevent the inevitable war breaking out between the two opposing kingdoms. She sets out for the remote abbey with a warrior named Cass - and very little time. But there are more sinister forces at work behind Dacán's death than just political intrigue....

The story is crafted to assail the emotions and make you feel as if you are present at the events.
Really great story.
There were times I wondered how she would survive. I thought I'd never get to grips with the archaic Irish words. How advanced they were compared to the Saxons and I feel the author has taught me a lot although there's a lot to learn about those times and how he managed to weave all that with those difficult words into a story is amazing. The narrator needs a medal! She read it beautifully and her characters lived. I love to hear a pure Irish accent like that.
Standard formula; just a change of scene.
Peter Tremayne seems set in a comfortable stride now and he doesn’t seem intent on deviating from the path. That’s all fine but this instalment in the series is a little less interesting, historically, for me personally. The intricacies of ancient Irish allegiances seemed rather too complicated to make for interesting background material let alone work as a sub plot. I did like the change of scene though, and new characters even if most are rather two dimensional.
However, as easy listening detective fiction, it does the job.
