Ireland AD 671; the Great Fair of Bealtain is almost upon the fortress of Cashel, and a line of gaudily painted wagons brings entertainers to mark the occasion.

Sister Fidelma and her companion, Brother Eadulf, journey to a remote Irish valley whose inhabitants still adhere to ancient Druidic traditions, only to become embroiled in an investigation into the deaths of thirty-three young men, who may have been thevictims of pagan sacrifice
  • Urllet
A pagan stronghold in a valley area in Mumar has requested that a representative come and discuss building a church in the area. Fidelma is appointed by her brother to be both his and the church's negotiator. Eadulf comes along to 'see more of the kingdom'. On the way a group of 33 men are killed and placed ritualistically. Fidelma thinks it is meant to scare her off. The chieftain seems the only one who wants to see her as the pagan community seems to find those of the New Faith dangerous to their way of life. Another cleric is there sent from the North where Bishop of Armagh thinks he is in authority over the whole island not just his see. Tempers flare and Fidelma thinks that something more sinister is afoot. Of course it was. I as usual figured out a few of the pieces but never quite got the last piece to slip in place. Great story and nice character growth
  • Preve
This story has many plot twists. It was fascinating to read how Fidelma unwinds the mystery. I wish it showed more of true Christianity, not warped Christianity, but it still is an interesting plot!

Was it ghostwritten under Tremayne's name by someone with little knowledge of grammar and spelling, not to mention syle? Was it rushed through to make a fast buck? Was there no time or budget for a copy editor? Could this pseudonymous Celtic scholar really not know the difference between "affect" and "effect?" "Lie" and "lay?" Was someone trying to sabotage his reputation?

I am only 1/3 of the way through Valley of the Shadow, which I eagerly anticipated, having read all the preceding ones in the series. Now, I'm not sure I can stand to finish it. While the others could have used a good editor, the stories were engaging enough that I could overlook a few mistakes for the sake of a good escape.

I hope the writer and publisher heeded the critics and hired an editor for subsequent editions. I do want to continue to occasionally get caught up in Sister Fidelma's world...

Even if the theology presented is a little contrived and not necessarily accurate, this is a good story. I fail to understand what Fidelma sees in Eadulf. He seems a little dense to me and she has an amazing mind and heart.
  • Original
This is the best combination of fiction and history I have read in recent years. If you want a really good novel with terrific characters, I heartily recommend it.
  • Winn
Another great book about Fidelma. This time she is accused of murder! I won't tell you the conclusion, but its a dilly!
  • Uthergo
This is the 10th Sister Fidelma Irish mysteries that I have read. I love the history of the Church during the 600AD in Ireland and also the code of ethics among the Irish tribes...no death penalty...women are equal to men. The mysteries keep me coming back for the intelligent discovery that Sister Fidelma gives each death or deaths. Taking a break to read another genre and then back to finish the 8 or 9 books left.
I love Peter Tremayne and his early Celtic setting. The setting and the characters are great fun, and the mystery is not obvious (even to one who has been reading mysteries for 50 or more years).
