#12 in Brother Cadfael's medieval mystery series, in which Abbot Rodolphus returns from a conference in Winchester with a new priest in tow to head up the church in Shrewsbury. Much more harsh and rigid than his predecessor, who was well-loved and forgiving, Father Ailnoth is found dead in the mill-pond on Christmas morning with at least half a dozen parishioners with good cause to have murdered him. Hugh Beringar is off at King Stephen's court to pay homage to his leader now that Stephen has dealt soundly with the upstart Empress Maud and is back on the throne, where Hugh hopes to find out if he will become the official sheriff of the county or if Stephen will appoint someone more influential. Cadfael pokes around in his usual wise yet unofficial manner to solve the mystery. Enjoyable, as always...my very favorite medieval mystery series ever!

No spoilers here, as I'm 75% thru it. I loved to detail, the hints the glimpses, and the shadows, which alert a perspective reader to the clues that brother cadfael has tucked away...These books are mysteries for readers who like to become involved in the puzzling, can you think as well as Brother Cadfael and puzzle out the murder before they escape?
