Publisher's Summary

In September of AD 666, an aged monk and a set of relics disappear during the night from the Abbey of Imleach. The missing monk is a matter of great concern for the abbey. But the relics are a disaster of a much higher order. They are the priceless holy relics of St. Ailbe, the man who, in the fifth century, brought Christianity to the Irish kingdom of Muman, converted and baptized its king, and founded the abbey. The relics are the political symbol of the entire kingdom, and their disappearance threatens to disrupt its continued peace and stability.

On a visit to the Abbey of Imleach, Sister Fidelma, sister to Colgu, the current king of Muman, and an advocate of the Brehon Courts, is asked to investigate. With the help of her friend and traveling companion, the Saxon monk Brother Eadulf, Fidelma begins slowly to unravel the mystery behind the twin disappearances. But there are dark forces at work, which will stop at nothing - even murder - to achieve their aims.

So Good!

I'm so glad Sister Fidelma is on Audible! I've read all of these books before, but it is so nice to listen to them too. Well written and well narrated!

Ms. Lennon is extraordinarily good at narration! But this was the lest complex and/surprising story on this series so far...

Excellent!!

I love this series! Filled with history and mystery, these books have become one of my favorite series. They are well written and the plots, though sometimes twisted, are easy to follow and creative. The narrator does such an excellent job that listening is a pleasure. Highly recommend!

Well done

Good story flow. And good narration. Good production. Historically: reasonably accurate. Not sure if this is a series.
