It is 1509 and, for the people of the Burren in western Ireland, the Michaelmas Fair is a joyous time for trade and celebration, signaling the start of autumn. It's a chance to gather, buy and sell their wares, and pay tribute to the lord of their clans. But this year is different.  The greedy steward of the MacNamara clan has decided to raise the amount demanded for its tribute, and it's not long before tempers are running high.

When the steward is found beaten to death in the local churchyard, it falls upon Mara, the Burren's Brehon Judge, to piece the puzzle together. Was it revenge, greed, or something more sinister that motivated the murder? When another body is discovered and alleged a suicide, Mara is unconvinced. And despite the distraction of a surprising offer of marriage, it is up to her to bring the killer to justice before there can be yet another death.

This was a quickly refreshing take on Medieval Irish history, with addition of new style names that separated out the droll of the soon to dominate Christian era. Neat plot, and sudden changes, easy engrossing read. New author for me, though will be looking for more of the same in future.

I love to travel back in time and read about the practice of law in Medieval Ireland. The rich history of the clans that live on the Burren, one of the largest karst landscapes in Europe, spiced up with a murder or two to keep you turning the pages.
