Summary
HISTORICAL MYSTERIES. 'Brother Cadfael sprang to life suddenly and unexpectedly when he was already approaching sixty, mature, experienced, fully armed and seventeen years tonsures.' So writes Ellis Peters in the introduction to A RARE BENEDICTINE - three vintage tales of intrigue and treachery, featuring the monastic sleuth who has become a cult figure of crime fiction. In this beautifully illustrated book legions of fans can now discover the story of Cadfael's entry into the monastery at Shrewsbury and the chain of events that led him into the Benedictine Order. These three tales show Cadfael at the height of his sleuthing form, with all the complexities of plot, vividly evoked Shropshire backgrounds and warm understanding of the frailties of human nature that have made Ellis Peters an international bestseller
