The Dove of Death

By Peter Tremayne

Published Jan 2010

Summer, AD670, An Irish merchant ship is attacked by a pirate vessel off the coast of Bro Waroch, one of the southern kingdoms of Breton peninsula. Murchad, the captain, and one of his passengers, a prince from the kingdom of Muman named Bressal, are killed in cold blood after they have surrendered.
Among the other passengers who manage to escape the slaughter are Sister Fidelma of Cashel and her faithful companion Brother Eadulf. Safely ashore, a grim task confronts Fidelma. Bressal was her cousin and Murchad had been a friend of long standing. Fidelma is determined to bring the killers to justice, spurred on not only by the fact that the killing demands family retribution, but also by her training as an advocate of the law system of her own land.
Fidelma’s task is not going to be easy; her only clue is that the attacking vessel was carrying on its sails the symbol of a dove. This quest will be the most dangerous she has undertaken and will lead her to the brooding fortress of Enez Lovr, the domain of the Lord of Brilhag, where she will confront Koulm Maro – The Dove of Death.
