Publisher's Summary

In the middle of the abbey's evening services, an angry mob pursues a young boy into the sacred peace of the sanctuary. Terrified and in tatters, he clutches at the altar-cloth, grasping for mercy in the only sure place he might find it. He is accused of robbery and murder, but Cadfael senses his innocence and sets out to prove it.
Solve another medieval mystery with Brother Cadfael.

The perfect series for comfort reading

The year is 2021. A plague devastates the countryside. My healthiest coping mechanism is spending as much time as possible in the town of Shrewbury in the 1100s - particularly in the herbarium at the monastery of St Peter and St Paul. Patrick Tull is a great narrator for the Brother Cadfael books, and Brother Cadfael books are the perfect mystery series for when the world feels like it’s falling apart. Good wins, the bad are treated with fairness and gentleness, and every storyline wraps up as tidily as you can hope for. Each story manages to be engaging, but with the comfort of a mystery series where you can start to predict and guess. You don’t have to listen in order, but I recommend it.

No one can do it like the English

On, to Chronicle Eight! I mean to read them all, and I heartily recommend them. The writing is dense with delicious details that flesh out the life and time to which the wonderful narration transports you.
Murders to solve! Subplots and clues abound. Let us go forth with haste!
