9780751517408: The Raven in the Foregate (The Cadfael Chronicles)

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:

The humble sinners of Holy Cross have a new priest, a dark, arrogant man with a heart as cold as the ice on the mill pond. He is accompanied by two others who are not quite what they appear to be. This medieval whodunit has Peters's usual richness of detail, intricacy of plot and satisfying characterization. Thorne brings to life all the folk of the abbey and town, especially our beloved sleuth, Brother Cadfael. This superb recording will entertain listeners as they consider both the king's justice and God's. D.L.G. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
