Overview

The King of Northumbria has requested the services of a wise counsel to decide the people's religious future. Among the select priests, elders, and scholars from Ireland and Rome is Sister Fidelma of Kildare. Trained as an advocate of the courts, she was expecting to rule on issues of law. Instead she was plunged into unholy murder.

Dead was the Abbess Étain, a leading Celtic speaker, her throat slashed. With the counsel in an uproar and civil war threatening, the desperate king has turned to the sharp-witted Sister Fidelma for help. With the aide of her dear friend Brother Eadulf and her faith in the truth, she must act in haste before the killer strikes again.

If you are a fan of Sister Fidelma, you have another mystery with more twists and turns than the catacombs at the Abbey. Two factions of the same religion are debating which is the one to be practiced in this section of England. The best of both religious factions are meeting to let the King decide. Before the discussion/debate can begin, death visits one of the attendees. Sister Fidelma and Brother Eaudulf are asked to investigate together to find the answer, both represent each side of the religious debate. As the debate continues without them, they follow the clues and suspects to the surprising finish.

Sister Fidelma is an interesting lead character. The characters in the book are well developed and the prose is well written. There is enough description to illuminate the setting without getting bogged down. The plot twists keep you guessing. I will read the whole series.
