Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the late 7th Century, the High King of Ireland is killed at night in the middle of his compound.  Who killed him is not in question - there are unimpeachable witnesses that point directly to the clan chieftain responsible. Dubh Duin is, after all, found by the High King's guards in the High King's bed chamber holding the murder weapon. But with impending civil war in the balance, the motive for the murder becomes of paramount importance.
The Chief Brehon of Ireland asks Fidelma of Cashel - sister to the King of Muman and a dailagh - to investigate.  What her investigations reveal is an intricate web of conspiracy and deception that threatens to unbalance the five kingdoms and send them spiralling into a violent and bloody civil war and religious conflict.  And it's up to Fidelma to not only see to justice but to prevent the violent fracturing of an increasingly fragile peace.

Synopsis:

In the winter of 669 C.E., the High King of Ireland is murdered and all evidence points to a particular clan chieftain. Now, it's up to Fidelma to uncover the motive for the murder.
