Sister Fidelma and her Eadulf are pulled into political upheaval and a conspiracy that threatens Fidelma, her brother the king and their kingdom. It all begins when a young nobleman is found stabbed to death and his body left by a stream. The young nobleman had no identificaiton so Fidelma and Eadulf set out to try to identify him. Their quest leads them into imminent danger and even results in Fidelma's kidnapping which luckly Eadulf rescues her from. The year is 670 AD. The place Ancient Ireland. Mr. Tremayne is an historian and his books are always historically correct. He also crafts intriguing and complex mysteries. This book is the 24th in this series. I did find the book a little difficult to follow because of the large cast and the strange names of the characters. I have been reading Fidelma for a long time so I'm used to the strange sounding names, but this book really has a lot of them. I also found that the descriptions of the various plots and conspiracies were a bit difficult to follow. This would not be a book for someone unfamiliar with Fidelma to begin the series with that's for sure. The book is very well written and the characters are quite realistic as usual, but maybe I'm just a little bewildered by this book for the reasons I've stated. It was not my favourite Sister Fidelma book but it will not stop me from reading this series.

Fidelma of Cashel and her husband Eadulf travel to a farmer's stream to try and identify a body of a noble killed there.
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.

Once again an excellent read. Never predictable. Just when you think you know, you don't. Quick moving story nice to relax with. It doesn't tax your brain too much. Great holiday or flight read.

Fidelma has always been arrogant, a name dropper, testy and had a sense of humor only when it suited her...but she was also knowledgeable, fair and loyal... But in this book, and I am in the middle of the book as I write this, her personality has deteriorated, she is without humor, she is all me me me - it seems her ambition has grown, and not being elected to the office she saught, she is in a bad humor indeed - Frankly she is no longer likable. I continue reading because the series so far has never disappointed, and I'm hoping that as I read on Fidelma will come to her senses," straighten up and fly right"

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!!!

Peter Tremayne just gets better and better. Cannot wait for the next Sister Fidelma. I love trying to prnounce the Irish Gaelic words in my mind. Thanks for the tutorial on the language at the end of the books.

Having failed at her attempt to be selected as the chief judge for her brother, the King, and having left religious life, Fidelma is feeling a little bored with her life. She is a highly ranked lawyer, and she finds day to day legal issues to be somewhat unchallenging.

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.

This latest Fidelma of Cashel, no longer Sr. Fidelma, mystery is another page turner. Peter Tremayne's knowledge of ancient Ireland's laws and customs makes an ordinary "who done it " even more interesting. Fidelma is a strong woman who
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.

This is a great story but a bit of a change from the typical Fidelma mystery. Small band raids, kidnapping, and a rogue band of monks seem to be related to a bigger plan.
