St. Peter's Fair is a grand, festive event, attracting merchants from across England and beyond. There is a pause in the civil war racking the country in the summer of 1139, and the fair promises to bring some much-needed gaiety to the town of Shrewsbury. Until, that is, the body of a wealthy merchant is found murdered in the river Severn. Was Thomas of Bristol the victim of murderous thieves? And, if so, why were his valuables abandoned nearby?

Brother Cadfael, that shrewd but kindly monk, offers to help the merchant's lovely niece Emma. But while he is searching for the killer, Thomas of Bristol's wares are ransacked and two more men are murdered. Emma almost certainly knows more than she is telling - as others will soon realize. Cadfael desperately races to save the young girl, knowing that in a country at war with itself, betrayal can come from any direction - and even good intentions can kill.

St. Peter's Fair is the fourth chronicle of Brother Cadfael, of the Benedictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, at Shrewsbury.

    " Another wonderful episode in the series about Cadfael, a monk living in the England of almost a thousand years ago. Along with the intriguing story line and the fascinating historical details, the author blesses us with philosophical observations. Page 63: "Penitence is in the heart, not in the words spoken." "

    " Well, this one had a new twist, but the formula remains clear. We meet two new young people - girl/boy - there is another, duplicitous. There is a murder. Girl seems to fall for duplicitous one, gets in trouble. Is rescued by Brother Cadfael and/or the smitten lad. Still, very nice. "

    " Interesting mystery with a twist. Also loved this quote by Brother Cadfael: 'The manifold gifts of God are there to be delighted in, to fall short of joy would be ingratitude.' "
