THE NINETEENTH CHRONICLE OF BROTHER CADFAEL
In the spring of 1145 a precious reliquary is stolen from the Benedictine Abby of Saint Peter and Saint Paul at Shrewsbury and the question arises: was the theft for profit, or a Holy one? Brother Cadfael, a monk with a bent for sleuthing, turns his mind to the problem – but before the answer is found a young man is brutally murdered and the finger of suspicion points to a gifted young musician who is, perhaps, using the Church for his own purpose. Cadfael must work fast if justice is to be done…
Ellis Peters has woven a splendid tale for Brother Cadfael's nineteenth outing, enthralling, romantic and brilliantly effective.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
To make them even more interesting, as I investigate my ancestry, some of my ancestors came from that area and were infact sheriffs of Shrewsbury and Knights and barons etc so it makes all the stories far more interesting and believable, even some Welsh among them.

of them several times. However, I didn't think this was one of her best and probably will not
read it again. I am glad I bought it on offer.
It did have the usual wonderful characters that the author portrayed so well, but I didn't think
it had enough action.
I was also disappointed when it finished at 84% as I was expecting more. I think the ending
could have been expanded upon and the killer's motives explored more. Also, though I was
delighted that the odious Brother Jerome at last got his "comeuppance", I thought that his
punishment could have been handled in more detail.
The usual boy meets girl scenario occurred, but again, not in any great detail.
Altogether, this was an o.k. read but nothing special.
