9780751511024: One Corpse Too Many (The Cadfael Chronicles)

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 ninety-four 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: ninety-five bodies lies 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: a girl in boy's clothing, a missing treasure, and a single broken flower - the tiny bit of evidence that Cadfael believes can most easily expose a murderer's black heart.

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
