Publisher's Summary

After years of studying with the Bishop, young Father Ailnoth has come to take over the parish of Holy Cross. But soon Ailnoth's true nature surfaces - harsh, cold-hearted, and merciless - and someone lures him from his home and murders him. Who in Shrewsbury would kill a priest on Christmas Day?
Suspicion is cast upon a young man who arrived with the priest's train and was sent to work in Brother Cadfael's garden. Indeed, he is soon discovered to be an impostor. To Brother Cadfael, now falls the familiar task of sorting out the complicated strands of innocence and guilt.

Not Thrilled

I usually enjoy listening to Cadfael mysteries over and over, but I found this formulaic and disjointed. The dialog which is usually close to poetry just plods, and the plot was predictable.
The butter on the bun though was a mushy ending to a totally improbable story.

The performance was dead on, just not much to work with.

I Hesitated to write this so I listened again. It just isn't there.
