Be warned people of Cashel – the son of chaos will reclaim this place and death and destruction will follow!
When a curious deputation of religieux arrive in Cashel, death follows close behind and Sister Fidelma and her companion, Eadulf, seem unable to stem the bloodshed and discover the sinister reason behind it.
Is one of the deputation responsible? What was the Venerable Verax, the elderly scholar from Rome, hiding? Was there an evil secret behind the austere and arrogant Bishop Arwald of Magonsaete? Indeed, what was the real reason behind Eadulf’s own brother, Egric’s unexpected appearance at Cashel to coincide with these events?
Victims and suspects combine to make a tangled skein that results in one of the most complex and bloody mysteries that Fidelma and Eadulf have ever had to face.
