This is not only a fun murder mystery, but it provides a glimpse into the conflict between the Irish church and the Roman church later known as Pelagianism.

A little faster paced than the debut, this second volume of Tremayne's series set in ancient Ireland finds Sister Fidelma and Brother Eadulf in Rome, where they are asked to investigate the murder of an archbishop. Tremayne is a master at twisting a puzzle yet giving the reader enough clues to figure out the solution, and the world of the 7th century is utterly fascinating.

As a historical fiction/mystery fan and of Irish descent I find this series intriguing. Peter Tremayne uses the detective thriller to educate on what could be dry history. I intend to read the entire series.

In the first book of this series, I figured out quickly who the killer was. In this one, I didn't know until the end. But then, not only did it make sense, but, having read the first book, I should have figured it out. Duh!
