Publisher's Summary

When the village of Shrewsbury's own sheriff, Gilbert Prestcote, is taken prisoner by the Empress Maud's forces, its citizens are prepared to exchange him for a man of equal value they have within their possession. But soon after Prestcote arrives for the prisoner exchange, he dies. Was it death by natural causes or a most unnatural murder?

Anther enjoyable read about the Welsh Monk...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

When it comes to this series of books I have enjoyed them all...this one also kept you wondering what was going to happen...it is nice to escape into the narrative...I would recommend this one if you are collecting this series...

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like Hugh Barringard as well as Cadfael...

What about Patrick Tull’s performance did you like?

easy to listen to...nice inflections when needed...

Cadfael is always a steady course

I know I can never go wrong when listening, or reading a Cadfael story. There is always something as you round the corners. And best of all, you never see it coming. Its human mystery at its best!
