First book by this author - excellent story line. The research that went into this time period shows and Sister Fidelma is brilliant without ever stepping over the line of the period

Tremayne continues to confound with twisted plots and multiple murders. Fidelma is sent by her brother King Colgu to negotiate the establishment of a Christian church in a remote mountain enclave resistant to the new faith. On the way there with her companion Brother Eadulf, they come upon what appears to be the pagan ritual murder of 33 unfortunate victims. Fidelma is determined to investigate and fulfill her task before returning to her brother but only encounters more mysteries to puzzle her. Things take a turn for the worse and the stakes are raised when she finds another dead body and is herself accused of murder.

I think this is the book where Sister Fidelma begins to evolve somewhat. There was more action adventure to the mystery. This book to me seemed to read faster.

A very good mystery with a somewhat surprise ending when the evil doer is revealed. However, shortly before the end, you are offered a good hint as to who the evil doer is, if you pay attention. And finally Brother Eadulf gets to do more than look on and make mistakes. Although getting drunk wasn't one of his better ideas.
