Hardcover. 292 pp. The 20th in this genre-defining series of medieval mysteries set in 12th century England and featuring monk/ apothecary/ sleuth Brother Cadfael. In this entry, a key nobleman and a number of knights formerly loyal to Empress Maud turn to King Stephen's side and are captured. Some are ransomed but others remain imprisoned--one of whom (though he is unware of this) is the son of Cadfael, born during the Crusades before Cadfael became a monk. Brother C. leaves the abbey to search for him and encounters frustrations and even murder. Peters' creation was the basis for the internationally popilar ITV/PBS "Mystery" series with Derek Jacobi starring in the title role. As New Hardcover 9780892965991 (Item ID: NE21946)
