“Medieval England comes marvelously alive.” —The Washington Post “Murderous though they be, the Ellis Peters books set in 12th-century Britain have the freshness of a new world at dawn. . . . Peters weaves a complex, colorful and at times quite beautiful tapestry. Medieval of course.” —The Houston Post

On the whole, the Chronicles of Brother Cadfael series can be read in any order. However, I would suggest reading the first ("A Morbid Taste for Bones”) and the second books ("One Corpse Too Many") first to lay the background for the rest of the series. Peters has a good sense of time and place, as well as the religious order. The plot was nicely planned, especially with some twists and surprises which kept the reader guessing. I did not sense who the killer was until near the end. If you like Medieval or historical mysteries, then you should give this well written series a try.
It took me awhile to figure out who the murderer actually was. Ellis did a wonderful job of hiding the clues up until the very end. She does an outstanding job of representing life in the 12th century. Particularly, in household duties of the wife and what type of authority she has.
If you've read any of the other Brother Cadfael books, you won't be disappointed with this one.
