Another great convoluted mystery! I have to admit that I might be slightly biased in my review as this is one of the few stories in which I guessed the murderer quite a ways from the end, but I thoroughly enjoyed this 5th volume of the series. Fidelma and Eadulf are once more paired together as she is asked by her brother King Colgu to investigate the murder of a small-town Celtic chieftain. What they discover is a nasty web of lies that the murderer seems determined to cover up as her investigation brings more evil to light, and the bodies alarmingly start to pile up. I find that the more books I read of this series, the more I am becoming attached to the characters.

In the spring of A. D. 666, murder cast a shadow on the peaceful town of Araglin. The village chieftain was found dead, his assumed killer, a local deaf-mute, standing over him, holding a bloody knife.

Advocate of the Brehon courts, Sister Fidelma is summoned to investigate. Locals are sure of the man's guilt, but when Fidelma and her friend Brother Eadulf are almost burned out of a nearby hostel, the two suspect a more tangled tale. What lies ahead in this seemingly tranquil place is a web full of secrets the whole village wants to keep hidden. And now Sister Fidelma must race to uncover the truth before she becomes the next victim....

If you like Irish history with an emphasis on Irish Christians,along with a heaping, helping of mystery, you will love this book. Sister Fidelma is still doing her thing in grand style.
