Ellis Peters fooled me again. As the plot unfolded, I assembled a list of five possible suspects in the murder, two of which I suspected were red herrings. Since Peters often lets characters you grow to love or admire do the killing, I didn't overlook those either. So I was surprised at the end of the book, when the murderer turned out to be someone not even close to being on my list.

Who does it better than Ellis Peters? Cadfael manages to solve the mystery with little modern technology but with good observational skills and forensic technique.

The Sherif of Shrewsbury is captured, a prisoner exchange is planned, and complications ensue that test Brother Cadfael's Welsh Honor, and faith. Psychological Mystery. Excellent. Part of a many volumes Series this is book #9. These well crafted stories, can stand alone, but after reading a few you want to keep reading more of the series.

This is a series which is fascinating and you can fall in love with the character development over time.
