This investigation throws up more puzzles to solve until eventually the culprits causing the uprising are uncovered. Another excellent mystery which held my interest right through.
The historical aspects of the book, the descriptions of dress, way of life, the laws of the time are all still interesting and worth the reading.
Sorry Mr. Tremayne!!! Perhaps I should have waited until I finished the book to write the review - But I'm mad at her now!!!
So, when an unknown noble emissary is found dead, Fidelma jumps at the chance to investigate the murder. At a moment's notice, she gathers up her husband Eadulf, says a hurried goodbye to their son Alchu, and rides off to begin her investigation.
Little does she know that her investigation will soon lead to a string of victims. The deaths seem to be unrelated, yet Fidelma soon learns that the untimely deaths are part of a tangled conspiracy. A conspiracy which threatens her life and her brother's reign.
Will Fidelma unravel the clues that will defeat the conspiracy and end the bloodshed?
Once again Tremayne has constructed a very tangled mystery. I had no idea who the culprit was until the reveal at the end.
I just wish Eadulf had a bigger role in the plot. He is a great guy, and I think Fidelma takes him for granted. And I worry about poor Alchu, their son. Once again, he is left at home with the nurse while his parents are in harm's way.
That being said, for me this was a very entertaining read.
does her job with compassion and extraordinary attention to detail. I love how her relationship with Eadulf is developing with a deeper respect for his contributions to solving the puzzles before them. Can't wait for more Fidelma mysteries.

Tremayne let me down on this one. Not as suspenseful as previous books. It did have a different ending, but was nothing surprising as in previous books.Published 5 months ago by Robert H. Appleby
