Ogni anno, nel cuore dell'estate, Shrewsbury si popola di una folla variopinta di mercanti, viaggiatori, dame e cavalieri. È la fiera di San Pietro, occasione di affari, divertimenti, ma anche di intrighi. In mezzo all'allegra confusione del mercato, fratello Cadfael scruta i volti, ascolta i discorsi, insegue gli indizi più minuti: sta braccando uno spietato assassino e non tornerà alle sue erbe senza aver dato un nome a chi ha osato insanguinare la fiera dell'anno del Signore 1139.

Everybody knows about this fabulous writer of historical cozy mysteries, murders and crimes, so what can I add? Just that, don't read the first of the Brother Cadfael series and think, that isn't SO impressive, and stop there! This was better than A Morbid Taste for Bones , the very first in the seri Leggi tutto
What a pleasure it is to find a character and a series that I consistently enjoy. Four books into the Chronicles of Brother Cadfael, and I am well and truly hooked. So I am well pleased to see that I still have 16 books ahead of me. The trick will be not to read them too quickly! Brother Cadfael is a Leggi tutto

Dašak srednjovjekovne političke intrige, dašak romantike i rješenje niza ubojstava. sasvim dobro!
(Upon my third reading, May 25, 2016) “The manifold gifts of God are those to be delighted in, to fall short of joy would be ingratitude.” Better with each reading. I discovered Cadfael twenty years ago. I have read each book at least twice since as well as watched all thirteen ITV episodes. Though th Leggi tutto
These are starting to grow on me. I read my first Cadfael, oh, I guess it was ten or so years ago. I wasn't all that into it. Not that it was terrible, I just wasn't thrilled by it. Since then I've gotten more into mysteries, so I figured I'd give Peters' stuff another go. I tried the hermit one abo Leggi tutto
It's always a treat to spend time with Brother Cadfael and the monks of Shrewsbury Abbey. I have the entire series now and plan to go through it... slowly.
I liked this one a lot.
Another great installment in the Cadfael series. I'm really enjoying these mysteries and the time I get to spend enjoying England of that era (without the aromas). This book like the earlier ones is richer, more complex and more enjoyable than the television series that was based on them. This is pa Leggi tutto
