In a mild December in the year of our Lord 1141, a new priest comes to the parishoners of the Foregate outside the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul. Father Ailnoth brings with him a housekeeper and her nephew- and a disposition that invites murder. Brother Cadfael quickly sees that Father Ailnoth is a harsh man who behaves like a doom-saying raven. The housekeeper's nephew, Benet, is quite different, a smiling lad, a hard worker in Cadfael's herb garden but, as Brother Cadfael soon discovers, an impostor. And when Ailnoth is found drowned, suspicion falls on Benet, though many in the Foregate had cause to want the priest dead. Now Brother Cadfael is gathering clues along with his medicinals to treat a case of unholy passions, tragic politics, and perhaps divine intervention.

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:

Ellis Peters brings medieval England to life with rich and wonderful descriptions of scenery, clothing, manners, and ritual. Our hero, Brother Cadfael, is a Benedictine monk, late of the Holy Crusades, through which he acquired his medicinal knowledge from the better-educated Muslims. In Shrewsbury, 1141, he needs all the wisdom he can evoke to solve a murder with no forensic medicine extant. When the harsh and unpopular Father Ailnoth is found murdered one viciously cold winter morning, there are more than enough suspects to go around. Stephen Thorne is an old hand here, having narrated many titles in this delightful series. He gives Cadfael a deep, comfortable character, bringing his kindness and gentle wisdom to the fore as the story progresses. He has a voice as easy to listen to as any heard today.
