I Love Cadefael Mysteries, but...

...this one seems like an afterthought. I found it dragging and a little hard to get into.

Yes, A Very Excellent Mystery Indeed!

Would you listen to An Excellent Mystery again? Why?

I really liked this story and performance. I probably will listen again at a later date.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I Knew early on who Brother Fidelis really was, and one faithful to their master. The silence was another clue.However, clever writing had me hooked and somewhat concerned that I might have been mistaken. Truly loved the ending and the quote from the Book of Common Prayer.

What does Patrick Tull bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His booming but pleasant Welsh tongue.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I almost did. Three sittings was a record for me.

Any additional comments?

Ellis Peters does not get stale in this series, as some often do. While the events are closely linked in time and history she always has uniquely different plots. Incredible!
