A funeral, a runaway villain, a murder, and an abduction give Brother Cadfael plenty of opportunities to puzzle his way through combined events and reach a satisfactory conclusion. Patrick Tull easily transports us back to the twelfth century and Shrewsbury Abbey, but this is a story that needs an attentive listener. Because of the voices and different accents used by Tull, it's easy to miss some of the dialogue, especially Cadfael's Welsh overtones. The language used is appropriate to the time, and descriptions of the area are lyrical and evocative. Once one becomes accustomed to the accents, the book is a delight!
