In the gentle Shrewsbury spring of 1140 the midnight matins at the Benedictine abbey suddenly reverberates with an unholy sound- a hunt in full cry. Pursued by a drunken mob, the quarry is running for its life. When the frantic creature bursts into the nave to claim sanctuary, Brother Cadfael finds himself fighting off armed townsmen to save a terrified young man. Accused of robbery and murder is Liliwin, a wandering minstrel who performed at the wedding of the local goldsmith's son. But his supposed victim, the miserly craftsman, is still alive, although a strongbox lies empty. Brother Cadfael believes that Liliwin is innocent, but finding the truth and the treasure before Liliwin's respite in sanctuary runs out may uncover a deadlier sin than thievery- a desperate love that nothing, not even the threat of hanging, can stop.… (més)

When a man escaping from an enraged mob claims sanctuary, Cadfael is ordered by his abbot to begin investigation of whether the mob's claims are legitimate. When a body is found on the river's edge, the mob suspects the man but Cadfael suspects otherwise. As he approaches the truth, he discovers that someone had weaved a perfect crime. Confronting the murderer is much more complicated considering the life of a maid is at stake & a man's innocence. ( )

Also read this previously in the 90's somewhere, I'm sure. Another good Cadfael mystery. All the usual things. ( )

Not the best one I've read so far. My favourite part was Liliwin's sanctuary, and the time he spent with the brothers. I ended up skimming the whole scene between him and Rannlit because it was all too sweet and twee for me. Peters seemed to spend a lot more time describing scenery and settings in exhaustive detail, and I'd catch myself half way through thinking alright already. I was also certain as to who the killer was long before the half-way mark. Sometimes the biggest clue is the way the author draws the character, and such was the case in this book; in trying to write a nondescript character, Peters created the only plausible suspect. There were details I did miss though that added to the complexity of the plot, and they were well crafted. The ending was a little eye-rolling, but not so much as the ending of book 6, if I recall correctly. Peters seemed to like daring escapes, for a bit, at least.

Not a bad book, but not the best of the 7 I've read either, by a long shot. ( )

Slightly out of the usual pattern for the Cadfael books and even better than usual. Surprising villain, quiet and competent, a daughter driven to desperate means by a tight fisted proud grandmother and matriarch. A lovely innocent pair of lovers in the falsely accused troubadour and the hard working maid taken finally for hostage. And of course justice is served at the end. ( )

It began, as the greatest of storms do begin, as a mere tremor in the air, a thread of sound so distant and faint, yet so ominous, that the ear that was sharp enough to catch it instantly pricked and shut out present sounds to strain after it again, and interpret the warning.
