"The dead always whisper to us. It is our task to listen to the whispers of the dead." Fidelma of Cashel - sister to the King of Muman, a religieuse of the Celtic Church and an advocate of the Brehon courts - returns in this new collection of tales. From the death of a young peasantwoman, to the discovery of a body in a saint’s tomb, Sister Fidelma is on hand to investigate the crimes of misdemeanours of the communities she visits. The stories are full of theft and murder, guilt and innocence, and blend historical detail with gripping mysteries and fascinating characters.
