HEMLOCK AT VESPERS is Peter Tremayne's anthology of Celtic mysteries featuring the ever-popular 7th-century super-sleuth Sister Fidelma.

PRAISE FOR HEMLOCK AT VESPERS:
'This collection is an essential canonical text for Sister Fidelma Acolytes' Publisher's Weekly
'A treasure trove of small gems for historical mystery fans' Booklist
'A complex mesh of betrayals that also catch up the sleuth, exploting both Fidelma's strengths and vulnerabilities' Kirkus Reviews

Sister Fidelma originally made her debut as one of the decade's most interesting sleuths in short story form. The sharp-witted and astonishingly wise religieuse captured the hearts of many readers as she successfully tackled the most baffling of crimes in her other role as advocate of the law courts of Ireland, using the ancient Brehon Law system.

The overwhelming response to these stories launched Fidelma as the heroine of a bestselling series of Celtic crime novels. But it also created a demand for further short stories.

HEMLOCK AT VESPERS is the first collection of these stories ever to be published. With its breathtaking range of settings and crimes, it is guaranteed to entertain and intrigue - and is an anthology that no lover of Celtic culture or historical crime should be without.

What readers are saying about HEMLOCK AT VESPERS:

'Brilliant. These books get better and better'

'There are echoes in the story that still reverberate today'

Praise for previous novels:
'The Sister Fidelma books give the readers a rattling good yarn. But more than that, they bring vividly and viscerally to life the fascinating lost world of the Celtic Irish. I put down The Spider's Web with a sense of satisfaction at a good story well told, but also speculating on what modern life might have been like had that civilisation survived' Ronan Bennett
'sister Fidelma is fast becoming a world ambassador for ancient Irish culture' Irish Post
'A heroine whom many readers will willingly follow' Kirkus Reviews;
'A brilliant and beguiling heroine. Immensely appealing, difficult to put down' PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY;
'Definately an Ellis Peter competitor...the background detail is marvellous' EVENING STANDARD;
