Tremayne continues his excellent Sister Fidelma series with a traditional locked-room whodunit. When brilliant but inexplicably moody Brother Donnachad is found murdered in his cell at the Abbey of Lios Mor, Abbot Iarnla petitions Fidelma's brother, Colgu, king of Muman, for assistance. As Fidelma and her husband-companion, Brother Eadulf, undertake the investigation, they place themselves in mortal danger. Targeted by a desperate zealot who murders in the name of the faith, they must unravel a mystery that has its roots in the scholarly Donnachad's discovery of disturbing evidence that seemingly conflicts with accepted Christian dogma. Meanwhile, with a killer at large, and as issues of loyalty, belief, and ambition swirl about them, Fidelma and Eadulf struggle with their own disquieting relationship crisis. As always, Tremayne delves deep beneath the surface puzzle, peeling back layer upon layer of fascinating medieval Irish history. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
