9780708825518: One Corpse Too Many: The Second Chronicle Of Brother Cadfael

In the summer of 1138, war between King Stephen and the Empress Maud takes brother Cadfael from the quiet world of his garden to the bloody battlefield. Not far from the safety of the Abbey walls, Shrewsbury Castle falls, leaving its 94 defenders loyal to the empress to hang as traitors. With a heavy heart, Brother Cadfael agrees to bury the dead, only to make a grisly discovery: 95 bodies lie in a row, and the extra corpse tells Cadfael that the killer is both clever and ruthless. But one death among so many seems unimportant to all but the good Benedictine. He vows to find the truth behind disparate clues.

About the Author:

Ellis Peters is a pseudonym of Edith Mary Pargeter (1913 1995), a British author whose Chronicles of Brother Cadfael are credited with popularizing the historical mystery. Cadfael, a WelshBenedictinemonk living atShrewsbury Abbey in the first half of the twelfth century, has been described as combining the curious mind of a scientist with the bravery of a knight-errant. The character has been adapted for television, and the books drew international attention to Shrewsbury and its history.Pargeter won an Edgar Awardin 1963 for"Death and the Joyful Woman", and in 1993 she won theCartier Diamond Dagger, an annual award given by theCrime Writers Association of Great Britain. She was appointedofficer of the Order of the British Empirein 1994, and in 1999 the BritishCrime Writers Associationestablished theEllis Peters Historical Daggeraward, later called the Ellis Peters Historical Award.

Stephen Thorne trained at RADA and played several seasons with the Old Vic Company and the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford and London. He has worked extensively in radio, with over two thousand broadcasts for the BBC, including Uncle Mort in the Radio 4 comedy series and the part of Treebeard in "The Lord of the Rings". His television work includes "EastEnders", "Boys from the Bush", "Death of an Expert Witness", and "David Copperfield".

From AudioFile:

Brother Cadfael, the twelfth-century herbalist and monk, has another murder to solve. This story, the second in the series of 20, brings us to Shrewsbury Abbey, which is caught amid the battle for the throne between King Stephen and Empress Maud. Narrator Johanna Ward is warm and lively as she transports us back in time. Her voice animates the many characters congenially as conspiracy and intrigue abound. This narration leaves the listener yearning for more Brother Cadfael. B.J.L. AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
