Valley of the Shadow

By Peter Tremayne

Published Jan 2010

Sister Fidelma has been sent by her brother, king of Cashel, to Laisre, chieftain of Gleann Geis – the ‘forbidden valley’ – to negotiate permission to build a Christian church and school in his territory, replacing the pagan Druidic sanctuaries.

Entering Gleann Geis with the Brother Eadulf, she comes across the naked, slain bodies of thirty-three young men, positioned in a sunwise circle. Who is responsible for such evil, if not the heathen Laisre?
