Booklist Monthly Selections - #2 September 2002

Sister Fidelma, premier seventh-century sleuth and advocate of the Brehon law courts of Ireland, returns to solve another mystery steeped in authentic medieval detail. This time, Fidelma has a decidedly more personal stake in the outcome of her investigation since it is her dear friend Brother Eadulf who stands accused of a heinous crime. With Eadulf's execution date already set, she races against the clock to prove him innocent of the rape and murder of a 12-year-old novitiate. Though an eyewitness has identified Eadulf as the perpetrator, Fidelma probes beneath the surface of the circumstantial evidence, exposing a despicable white slavery ring masterminded by an embittered female cleric. Underscoring this tautly constructed whodunit is a fascinating subplot involving the historical clash between the Celtic Church of Ireland and the Roman Church. Tremayne provides another evocative and intelligent chapter in the Sister Fidelma chronicles. ((Reviewed September 15, 2002)) Copyright 2002 Booklist Reviews

In Our Lady of Darkness: A Celtic Mystery, by British author Peter Tremayne (the pseudonym of Celtic historian Peter Berresford Ellis), Roman Penitential law and traditional Irish law come into conflict as Sister Fidelma finds herself defending her good friend, Saxon monk Brother Eadulf, from a rape and murder charge. This is another solid installment in this well-established medieval series. Agent, Michael Thomas.
