Sister Fidelma is summoned to the court of the King of Muman to solve two murders and ensure that the crimes do not ignite a war, but the nun soon discovers that there are far more sinister forces at work than mere political intrigue, in a mystery set in seventh-century Ireland.

Blackwell North Amer
In A.D. 644, the Venerable Dacan, a respected scholar of the Celtic Church, is murdered while on a visit to the Abbey of Ros Ailithir in the Irish Kingdom of Muman. Dacan, unfortunately, was the close confidant of the hot-headed young king of the neighboring kingdom of Fearna, who is using Dacan's murder as an excuse to provoke war.
Sister Fidelma, an advocate of the Brehon courts, is summoned by the dying King of Muman to solve the brutal killing and also to prevent the incipient war between the two kingdoms. But, at the remote abbey, Fidelma soon discovers that there are far more sinister forces than mere political intrigue at work behind the mystery of Dacan's death. She must quickly unravel a most complicated mystery if she is to prevent the coming war - and preserve her own life as well.

I didn't find this mystery as good as the last couple (or first couple depending on your perspective). I miss having Brother Eadulf in the story and am hoping that when he returns to the story, the books will return to their former promise.
