Under the name of Ellis Peters she wrote crime fiction including The Chronicles of Brother Cadfael and a more 'modern' detective, Detective Chief Inspector George False.

Yet another gem from the Audio Partners Mystery Masters series. You're always in safe hands with the wonderful Stephen Thorne. His execution of Brother Cadfael is near perfection, injecting into the character all the intelligence and compassion that make him such a well-loved figure in crime fiction. After a near-fatal accident, Brother Haluin feels his sins heavy upon his soul and embarks, with the help of Cadfael, on a pilgrimage of atonement. Along the way old deceits and betrayals come to light, as well as another tragedy in the making that Brother Cadfael must put right. Altogether a good bet. Peters is the master of the medieval mystery, and any time spent with Stephen Thorne is time well spent. D.G. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
