When word reaches Cashel that the culprit will be executed under new law, a larger conflict threatens. Dispatched to investigate, Sister Fidelma and her companion Eadulf discover that the man facing punishment is Gorman, the commander of the King's bodyguard. But Fidelma cannot believe Gorman would carry out such an act and yet he was found locked in a chamber with the body, weapon in hand. The evidence is stacked against him. If they are to save Gorman and keep the peace between the kingdoms, Fidelma and Eadulf must find the true culprit. As the threat of war looms, the date of execution drawers ever closer.

Fans of Sister Fidelma of Cashel should be delighted by the most recent installment in the series. We have a medieval murder mystery - actually, a relatively simple mystery shrouded in multiple layers of political intrigue, fierce theological debates, courtroom shenanigans, rollicking brigandage, and plenty of background in early Irish culture.
