The Devil's Seal by Peter Tremayne
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The 25th in Peter Tremayne’s Sister Fedelma series, murder mysteries set in 7th Century Ireland. If you’ve not read the series before you should absolutely start at the beginning with Absolution by Murder. The author is an authority on the period and the books are hugely enjoyable and absolutely fascinating. If you’re already a fan then you’re in for a treat as this is up there with Tremayne’s best.

If you like Peter Tremayne you might also like to read books by Lindsey Davis, Ellis Peters and Candace Robb.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. The year is 671 and the setting is the mist-shrouded landscape of rural Ireland where the secretive and sometimes reclusive inhabitants provide another mystery for Dark-Ages sleuth Sister Fidelma. Along with her friend Eadulf, Fidelma realises things are not quite as they seem when a deputation of religious personnel arrives. It isn’t long before the first death follows, and from then on there is bloodshed galore, which raises many questions about the religious delegation, a Roman scholar, and the forbidding Bishop Arwald. As ever, Peter Tremayne creates a tense atmosphere while weaving a beguiling whodunit with a difference.

Synopsis

The Devil's Seal by Peter Tremayne

Ireland, AD 671. When a curious deputation of religieux arrive in Cashel, death follows close behind. Sister Fidelma and her companion, Eadulf, seem unable to stem the bloodshed. Is one of the deputation responsible? What was the Venerable Verax, the scholar from Rome, hiding? Was there an evil secret behind the austere Bishop Arwald? Indeed, what was the real reason behind Eadulf's brother Egric's unexpected appearance at Cashel - could he be the culprit? Victims and suspects combine to make a tangled skein of mystery more complex and bloody than Fidelma and Eadulf have ever faced.
