Absolution by Murder
By Peter Tremayne
Seventh-century Ireland is the scene of Celtic-style Christianity vs. Roman Christianity, warrior-kings, and brutal murder. Can Fidelma, sister to the king and judge in her own right, discover who has murdered the abbess of Kildare? A sister of the Celtic persuasion, Fidelma is teamed with her intellectual and spiritual equal, Brother Eadulf, who owes his allegience to Rome. First of a series.
