9780747267836: Hemlock at Vespers: Vol 1

Sister Fidelma—an Eognacht princess and sister to the king of Cashel, a religieuse of the Celtic Church and an advocate of the Brehornn court-is one of the most interesting and compelling figures in contemporary mystery fiction. In this collection of short mysteries, Tremayne fills in many of the background details of Fidelma and seventh-century Ireland not found in the novels, and weaves his always-beguiling mix of history and mystery.

About the Author:

Peter Tremayne is the fiction pseudonym of Peter Berresford Ellis, an authority on the ancient Celts, who has used his knowledge of the Brehon law system and 7th-Century Irish society to create a new concept in detective fiction.

Review:

Praise for previous novels:'The Sister Fidelma books give the readers a rattling good yarn. But more than that, they bring vividly and viscerally to life the fascinating lost world of the Celtic Irish. I put down The Spider's Web with a sense of satisfaction at a good story well told, but also speculating on what modern life might have been like had that civilisation survived' Ronan Bennett'sister Fidelma is fast becoming a world ambassador for ancient Irish culture' Irish Post'A heroine whom many readers will willingly follow' Kirkus Reviews;'A brilliant and beguiling heroine. Immensely appealing, difficult to put down' PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY; 'Definately an Ellis Peter competitor...the background detail is marvellous' EVENING STANDARD; A treasure trove of small gems for historical mystery fans * BOOKLIST * VALLEY OF THE SHADOW'Tremayne's discriminating sense of history distinguishing ever-finer conflicts...creates an equally complex mystery for history-mad readers with eyes as sharp as Fidelma's' Kikus Reviews This collection is an essential canonical text for Sister Fidelma acolytes * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY * ACT OF MERCY'The background detail is brilliantly defined...
