Publisher's Summary

King Stephen's bloody siege against the town of Shrewsbury has reduced many of its stores and homes to rubble. The townspeople, busy preparing for the annual St. Peter's Fair, complain that the Shrewsbury monks have not shouldered their fair share of the burden. Cadfael, hoping to assuage flaring tempers, is drawn into a worse kind of violence on the eve of the festival.


What the Critics Say

"With colorful, convincing details on the workings of a medieval fair - a graceful and informative case for Peters' engaging herb-gardening monk." (Kirkus Reviews)

A perfect listen - outstanding narration

Patrick Tull (god rest his soul) could perform the encyclopedia and make it entertaining. His rumbling voice, grasp of dialect, and acting skills are perfect for Brother Cadfael, and the Cadfael books are a great vehicle for him. The mysteries are of the heart and spirit, with enough twists to engage and surprise. I'll confess the happy-enough endings are comforting.
