Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this mystery featuring 12th-century Brother Cadfael, a Welsh lord captured by the English is to be exchanged for Gilbert Prestcote, sheriff of Shropshire, who is held by the Welsh. When Prestcote dies in Welsh hands, Cadfael suspects murder and reveals the motives of the captors. PW commented: ``Peters's local color is at its most engaging in the tangled family trees that sprawl across a contentious border.'' (May)

    A pretty good book.

    I thought that this book was a pretty good medieval novel. I think that it deserves four stars for a rating. It was pretty interesting towards the middle and end, but a little boring in the beginning. I would recommend this novel for people that like medieval history because this book was accurate with history.
