Rezension:

The latest Sister Fidelma mystery is one of the best... an excellent mystery with rich helpings of evil and tension set within a culture struggling to keep its identity and laws in the face of pressure from the Roman Church. Peter Tremayne paints a believable picture of time and place with a set of lively and varied characters ( HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW)

'Strong on historical whodunnit, as sharp as a sword and as colourful as any medieval manuscript' Northern Echo

HEMLOCK AT VESPERS

'Peter Tremayne's collection of Celtic mysteries is an ideal introduction..to Sister Fidelma; a beguiling figure... A girl with definite ideas and distinct authority; a girl for our times as much as for her own' Historical Novels Review

'This collection is an essential canonical text for Sister Fidelma acolytes' Publisher's Weekly

'Fidelma's fans will welcome this first-ever collection, many stories of which are appearing here for the first time' Kirkus Reviews

'A treasure trove of small gems for historical mystery fans' Booklist

'A complex mesh of betrayals that also catch up the sleuth, exploiting both Fidelma's strengths and vulnerabilities' Kirkus Reviews

'Beguiling' Peterborough Evening Telegraph



ACT OF MERCY

'The background detail is brilliantly defined... Wonderfully evocative' The Times



VALLEY OF THE SHADOW

'Tremayne's discriminating sense of history distinguishing ever-finer conflicts...creates an equally complex mystery for history-mad readers with eyes as sharp as Fidelma's' Kikus Reviews



Praise for previous novels:

'The Sister Fidelma books give the readers a rattling good yarn. But more than that, they bring vividly and viscerally to life the fascinating lost world of the Celtic Irish. I put down The Spider's Web with a sense of satisfaction at a good story well told, but also speculating on what modern life might have been like had that civilisation survived' Ronan Bennett

'A heroine whom many readers will willingly follow' Kirkus Reviews;

'A brilliant and beguiling heroine. Immensely appealing, difficult to put down' PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY;

'Definitely an Ellis Peter competitor...the background detail is marvellous' EVENING STANDARD;

Vom Verlag:

Arriving home from a pilgrim voyage, Sister Fidelma hears that her faithful Saxon companion, Brother Eadulf, is under sentence of death for murder. She hastens to the capital of Laigin, where he is being held, determined to appeal against the sentence. The crime took place at the abbey of Fearna where Fidelma clashes with the sinister Abbess Fainder. The evidence against Eadulf seems overwhelming - can he actually be guilty? Will Fidelma's emotional involvement blind her in her desperate search for the truth?
