Fiction. Mystery. Historical Fiction. HTML:The twelfth-century Welsh monk is caught up in civil war and captured by Danish mercenaries, in the Silver Dagger Award??winning medieval mystery series.
In the summer of 1144, a strange calm has settled over England. The armies of King Stephen and the Empress Maud, the two royal cousins contending for the throne, have temporarily exhausted each other. On the whole, Brother Cadfael considers peace a blessing. Still, a little excitement never comes amiss to a former soldier, and Cadfael is delighted to accompany a friend on a mission of diplomacy to his native Wales.

But shortly after their arrival, the two monks are caught up in another royal feud. The Welsh prince Owain Gwynedd has banished his brother Cadwaladr, accusing him of the treacherous murder of an ally. The reckless Cadwaladr has retaliated by landing an army of Danish mercenaries, poised to invade Wales. As the two armies teeter on the brink of bloody civil war, Cadfael is captured by the Danes and must navigate the brotherly quarrel that threatens to plunge an entire kingdom into cha

Cadfael accompanies the Bishop of Lichfield's representative as interpreter on a journey to the newly-revived Welsh diocese of St Asaph. The journey is more eventful than expected. The Danish fleet is sighted approaching the Menai Strait, a girl disappears and a corpse is discovered. [return][return]Cadfael goes back home into Wales, to act as interpreter between the new abbot, and the local princes. [return][return]Problems occur, when the younger brother of one of the princes, who has been disowned from his land, arrives back in Wales with an army of Danes over from Dublin.[return][return]Not exactly full of tension - the Danes are decent folk, and Owain and Otin have no quarrel with each other, preferring to watch Owain's brother make an eejit of himself, but an enjoyable quick read none the less ( )

A fairly accurate portrayal of the time period and characters and the working out of the mystery. ( )

La primavera del año 1144 se presenta hermosa, y fray Cadfael siente en sus venas un conocido hormigueo: la vieja añoranza de una vida más activa. ¿Será casualidad o milagro que en esos momentos aparezca por la abadía de San Pedro y San Pablo su antiguo discípulo y amigo fray Marcos? Porque éste está encargado de una misión diplomática en un obispado galés, y necesita alguien que hable el idioma del país. Alguien que lo hable tan bien como fray Cadfael. Así pues, los monjes viajarán a Gales: en la corte de Owain Gwynedd se verán envueltos en las consecuencias de la traición del hermano de éste, el atolondrado Gadwaladr, quien, desposeído de sus tierras por su comportamiento, no duda en aliarse con los daneses para invadir el reino de Owain...

When an old acquaintance Brother Mark, a special envoy from the Bishop, requests Brother Cadfael to assist him to Wales, neither of them expected to be in the middle of a Welsh brotherly feud which brings Irish pirates to pillage & plunder. In the midst of the chaos, a Welsh nobleman is found dead, a bride to be goes missing, & a deadly confrontation nearly gets both Cadfael & Mark killed. Will Cadfael discover the murderer before all hell breaks loose? Read & find out. ( )

Brothers Cadfael and Mark head into Wales on a diplomatic mission that escalates into conflict between Welsh royalty and Danish invaders. Not so much a mystery as an interesting story about 12th Century politics and relationships. ( )

The extraordinary events of that summer of 1144 may properly be said to have begun the previous year, in a tangle of threads both ecclesiastical and secular, a net in which any number of diverse people became enmeshed, clerics, from the archbishops down to Bishop Roger de Clinton's lowliest deacon, and the laity from the princes of North Wales down to the humblest cottager in the trefs of Arfon.
