9780751527322: The Holy Thief (The Cadfael Chronicles)

In the chilly, damp Autumn of 1144, two groups of visitors seek the hospitality of the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, and Brother Cadfael fears the trouble has come in with them. Among the first arrivals is Brother Tutilo, a young Benedictine with a guileless face and- to Brother Cadfael's shrewd eyes- a mischievous intelligence. The second group, a ribald French troubadour, his servant and a girl with the voice of an angel, seems to Brother Cadfael a catalyst for disaster. All of Cadfael's fears become manifest as rising flood waters endanger the abbey's most sacred relic, the remains of Saint Winfred. When the bones disappear and a dead body is found, Brother Cadfael knows that carnal and spiritual intrigues are afoot. Now, in a world that believes in signs and miracles, Brother Cadfael needs his prayers answered- as well as some heavenly guidance to crucial clues- to catch a killer hell-bent on murder.

About the Author:

Ellis Peters is one of the pseudonyms of Edith Pargeter who wrote several books under her own name and also Peter Benedict, Jolyon Carr and John Redfern. She was the recipient of the Crime Writers Association and the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award. She died in 1995.

From AudioFile:

Paul Scofield sounds like a 12th-century monk--learned, formal and out of this world. He brings a very medieval interpretation to Brother Cadfael and the host of priors and abbots. Scofield reads slowly with a rich, melodic tone. The narration complements the story. Cadfael's voice, refined and resolute, has a beneficent tone. The web of the story may not be easy to follow except for experienced Cadfael fans. Here the monk tries to uncover the reasons for the theft of a holy relic and the murder of a young man. The unfamiliar names, titles and relationships are not for novices. The abridgment moves through the story quickly compounding the puzzle. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
