Murder in the twelfth century is no different from murder today. There is still a dead body, though this time with an arrow through the heart instead of a bullet. There is still a need to bury the dead, to comfort the living - and to catch the murderer. When Brother Cadfael comes to a village in the Welsh hills, he finds himself doing all three of those things. And there is nothing simple about this death. The murdered man's daughter needs Cadfael's help in more ways than one. There are questions about the arrow. And the burial is the strangest thing of all.

    " Great fun. I had seen a few episodes of the PBS series, but, of course, the books are much more fun. The solution was a bit contrived, but that's no big problem. I will happily read more Cadfael mysteries. "

    " 3.75 stars. I really enjoyed the first in this Brother Cadfael series, and look forward to continuing with it. It wasn't a page-turner that constantly called me back to it, but I was happy to spend time with the characters when I did pick it up. There is a lot to like about Brother Cadfael, I love the setting, and am slowly learning about medieval history, which is great. I also like a series in which religion figures prominently and positively, and people try to be good to one another, and show real remorse when committing a wrong. I look forward to getting to know Brother C and the rest of his order in this lengthy series by Ellis Peters. "

    " I have read all of these books a couple of times. I enjoy learing about that historical period in England, I enjoy the mystery, and I have enjoyed the few PBS movies of various of these books that have been filmee. "
