About this title:
Synopsis:
'Brother Cadfael sprang to life suddenly and unexpectedly when he was already approaching sixty, mature, experienced, fully armed and seventeen years tonsures.' So wrote Ellis Peters in her introduction to A RARE BENEDICTINE - three vintage tales of intrigue and treachery, featuring the monastic sleuth who has become a cult figure of crime fiction. The story of Cadfael's entry into the monastery at Shrewsbury has been known hitherto only to a few readers; now his myriad fans can discover the chain of events that let him into the Benedictine Order. Lavishly adorned with Clifford Harper's beautiful illustrations, these three tales show Cadfael at the height of his sleuthing form, with all the complexities of plot, vividly evoked Shropshire backgrounds and warm understanding of the frailties of human nature that have made Ellis Peters and international bestseller.

About the Author:
Ellis Peters was the pseudonym of Edith Pargeter. She wrote twenty chronicles in the Cadfael series, which she produced annually until her death in 1995.

From AudioFile:
What better introduction to Ellis Peters's classic mysteries than this trio of stories introducing her well-loved medieval sleuth, Brother Cadfael? Beginning with Cadfael's transformation from crusading warrior to Benedictine monk and moving through devious doings at Shrewsbury Abbey, Stephen Thorne's narrative enhances the liveliness and detail of Peters's evocative characters and settings. As Cadfael blends herbal poultices in his apothecary, so Thorne's delivery blends clearly defined delivery with just the right proportions of vocal drama to yield a reading of rare enjoyment. While actor Derek Jacobi's version of Brother Cadfael on PBS's "Mystery" series presents a ready picture for the eye, the pure ear appeal of Cadfael's rolling Welsh burr in this recording provides a pleasure far more lingering. Move over Derek Jacobi, hello Stephen Thorne! P.H.M. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
