I prefer Sir Derek!
This is my 2nd favorite Cadfael novel. The book introduces Cadfael's son, one of my favorite characters in the entire series. BTW First favorite is Brother Cadfael's Penance in which also includes Cadfael's son.
Olivier, Cadfael's son who manages to get into what amounted to enemy territory and get back out without getting caught and still do what he was sent there for.
Tull's voice fits the book and it's characters but he has a tendency to get a bit carried away. I have listened to Derek Jacobi's versions of the Cadfael books. He played Cadfael in the British TV series based on the books. He does a better job IMHO by keeping the needed interest without going off the deep end the way Tull has a habit of doing, more so in this book than he did in the other Cadfael book I have of his, "One Corpse Too Many"
I have done so twice now and have also listened to it in parts during my working hours.
I like Tull's performance but I would like to see the unabridged versions by Derek Jacobi available as well. If they were available, I'd buy the lot!
