Another lovely read by Ellis Peters (Edith Pargeter’s nom de plume). Make sure you keep close attention to the story, for you will be certainly mislead to guess the killer in a character who did not commit the crime. I loved the ending with Bishop Roger de Clinton’s wisdom portrayed in an exchange with the young “Heretic’s Apprentice,” Elave. Also the minute description of a psalter is absolutely fantastic, breathtaking! Mrs. Pargeter had such way with words… Beware that Cadfael does not appear as much as in other prior stories, but that did not detract from the whole. Highly recommend.

There is no sin unless through a man's own will, and hence the reward when we do right things also of our own will. (Against Fortunatus, St. Augustine)
