Brother Cadfael must intervene when a prisoner exchange is interrupted by love and murder, in the Silver Dagger Award-winning medieval mystery series. In February of 1141, men march home from war to Shrewsbury, but the captured sheriff Gilbert Prestcote is not among them. Elis, a young Welsh prisoner, is delivered to the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul to begin a tale that will test Brother Cadfael's sense of justice--and his heart.   By good fortune, it seems, the prisoner can be exchanged as Sheriff Prestcote's ransom. What no one expects is that good-natured Elis will be struck down by cupid's arrow. The sheriff's own daughter holds him in thrall, and she, too, is blind with passion. But regaining her father means losing her lover. The sheriff, ailing and frail, is brought to the abbey's infirmary--where he is murdered. Suspicion falls on the prisoner, who has only his Welsh honor to gain Brother Cadfael's help. And Cadfael gives it, not knowing the truth will be a trial for his own soul.… (més)

After a battle up north ends in King Stephen's imprisonment & the disappearance of the town's Sheriff, rumors fly that the Sheriff is still alive but the abbey has no bargaining chip until a foolish noble gets caught attempting to break into a nunnery. The Welsh family agrees to the exchange except that the Sheriff ends up dead in the Abbey's infirmary after the exchange. Cadfael knows there are more than 2 suspects & only one of them carried out the crime. Will Cadfael get to the killer before the bandits return to wipe out the nunnery? ( )

History raids and battles play the largest part of any Cadfael mystery in the series up to this point.
In a series pretty well known for

happy endings and romances blossoming, this book was a surprise in that the murderer not only gets away but he also gets the girl. Eliud kills the sheriff so that his cousin, the hero of the story Elis can marry the sheriff’s daughter Melicent. That leaves the way open for Eliud to marry Elis’ betrothed Cristina. In the end the murderer Eliud is snuck back to Wales to marry. Hugh and Cadfael aren’t to bothered by the outcome, so I guess I’m not either.

Adequate entry in this entertaining series, and I didn't guess the culprit before it was revealed. ( )

Sheriff Prescote is wounded and a prisoner of the Empress Maud's forces. An exchange is being arranged and he is brought back to the Abbey at Shrewsbury where Brothers Edmund and Cadfael can care for him. However he has made enemies and is murdered in the infirmary. So what happens to the young man to be exchanged! And who murdered the sheriff, who as a dead man cannot be ransomed.

In this book, we see medieval Wales under Owain Gwynedd (the grandfather of Llewelyn, "the one, true and only Prince of Wales," as well as the continuing feud between King Stephen and the Empress. A book well worth reading! ( )

On that day, which was the seventh of February of the year of Our Lord 1141, they had offered special prayers at every office, not for the victory of one party or the defeat of another in the battlefields of the north, but for better counsel, for reconciliation, for the sparing of blood-letting and the respect of life between men of the same country - all desirable consummations, as Brother Cadfael sighed to himself even as he prayed, but very unlikely to be answered in this torn and fragmented land with any but a very dusty answer.
