Peter Tremayne, highly acclaimed author of THE DEVIL'S SEAL and ATONEMENT OF BLOOD, presents THE SECOND DEATH, another gripping Celtic mystery featuring super-sleuth Sister Fidelma.

PRAISE FOR THE SISTER FIDELMA SERIES: 'Tremayne's super-sleuth is a vibrant creation' Morgan Llywelyn, 'A brilliant and beguiling heroine. Immensely appealing' Publishers Weekly

Ireland, AD 671. The Great Fair of Bealtain is almost upon the fortress of Cashel, and a line of painted wagons carries entertainers to mark the occasion. But preparations take a deathly turn when one carriage is set alight, and two corpses are found, lying poisoned, within.

As Sister Fidelma and her companion, Eadulf, investigate, they are plunged into the menacing marshlands of Osraige - where the bloody origin of the Abbey of Cainnech is wreaking his revenge.

Fidelma and Eadulf must face untold mortal danger before they can untangle the evil that strikes at the very heart of the kingdom.

What readers are saying about THE SECOND DEATH:

'It is impossible not to be impressed by the author's depth of knowledge of the period'

'A thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable read'

'Delivers another winning dose of mystery in ancient Ireland. Murder, mayhem, intrigue and a web of lies'
