SYNOPSIS
The sub-title is 'A Mediaeval Whodunnit' so this intriguing novel stands out from those contemporary mysteries that find their strength in ' forensic detail, promiscuous sex and so on. i' A delightful detective makes his ' appearance in the person of Brother Cadfael, in charge of the herb-gardens in the Benedictine Monastery of Shrewsbury. Cadfael is not very unworldly, since he entered the cloister late in life. But his role becomes a very vital one when his superiors become , obsessed with the notion of acquiring the bones nf an obscure saint from a remote Welsh village.
