by | Read by Paul Scofield

Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1992

Paul Scofield sounds like a 12th-century monk--learned, formal and out of this world. He brings a very medieval interpretation to Brother Cadfael and the host of priors and abbots. Scofield reads slowly with a rich, melodic tone. The narration complements the story. Cadfael's voice, refined and resolute, has a beneficent tone. The web of the story may not be easy to follow except for experienced Cadfael fans. Here the monk tries to uncover the reasons for the theft of a holy relic and the murder of a young man. The unfamiliar names, titles and relationships are not for novices. The abridgment moves through the story quickly compounding the puzzle. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 93]
