Description
In the gentle Shrewsbury spring of 1140 the midnight bell at the Benedictine abbey suddenly reverberates with an unholy sound—a hunt in full cry, conducted by a drunken mob. When their frantic quarry bursts into the nave to claim sanctuary, Brother Cadfael finds himself fighting off armed townsmen to save a terrified young man accused of robbery and murder. Liliwin is a wandering minstrel who performed at the wedding of the local goldsmith's son, and although his supposed victim, the miserly craftsman, is still alive, a strongbox has been emptied. In proving Liliwin is innocent, however, Brother Cadfael may uncover a deadlier sin than thievery—a desperate love affair that will not yield even to the threat of hanging. Writing as Ellis Peters, linguist and scholar Edith Pargeter (1913–1995) created one of the great historical mystery sleuths in Brother Cadfael, the worldly Welsh Benedictine monk of Shrewsbury Abbey in 12th-century Shropshire, England. After a score of Brother Cadfael mysteries and many others Peters earned the Edgar Award, the Cartier Diamond Dagger, and enrollment in the Order of the British Empire (OBE) "for services to Literature."
