‘The dead always whisper to us. It is our task to listen to the whispers of the dead’. Whispers of the Dead is a sumptuously rich feast of fifteen short mystery tales, never before published in book form, featuring the brilliant and beguiling Sister Fidelma, the seventh-century sleuth of the Celtic Church. Sister Fidelma has become one of the most fascinating and compelling figures in contemporary fiction. A red-haired, quick-witted and extraordinarily wise religieuse, Fidelma successfully tackles the most bewildering of crimes. This collection contains an astonishing range of crimes and misdemeanours and seamlessly blends historical detail, character and story into mysteries that will confound and surprise. Whispers of the Dead is Sister Fidelma at her very best.
