Mystery & Suspense • 6.9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1984

This entry in Peters's Brother Cadfael series finds the sixteenth-century monk hosting pilgrims who have traveled to Shrewsbury to commemorate the translation of St. Winifred's bones to the Benedictine abbey. The murder of a knight has political implications which reach Cadfael and involve him and some of the pilgrims in a mystery. Stephen Thorne, who has recorded several of Cadfael's adventures from Chivers, skillfully evokes the time and place with a fully voiced performance. Although the political and historical background presented as conversations in the opening pages results in a slow start, the story, intriguing characters and atmosphere soon captivate the listener.
