Sister Fidelma returns in the twenty-first 7th-century Irish mystery, THE CHALICE OF BLOOD by Peter Tremayne, acclaimed author of THE DOVE OF DEATH and THE COUNCIL OF THE CURSED. If you love Ellis Peters you will be gripped by this novel.

PRAISE FOR THE SISTER FIDELMA SERIES: 'The background detail is brilliantly defined . . . wonderfully evocative' The Times, 'A brilliant and beguiling heroine. Immensely appealing' Publishers Weekly

Ireland AD 670. When an eminent scholar is found murdered in his cell in the abbey of Lios Mor, fear spreads among his brethren; his door was secured from the inside, with no other means of exit. How did the murderer escape? And what was the content of the manuscripts apparently stolen from the scholar's room?

Abbot Iarnla insists on sending for Sister Fidelma and her companion Brother Eadulf to investigate the killing. But even before they reach the abbey walls, there is an attempt on their lives. As the mystery deepens, Fidelma and Eadulf must also wrestle with problems of their own, which threaten to separate them for ever...

What readers are saying about THE CHALICE OF BLOOD:

'Excellent historical content as well as the usual intriguing mystery'

'Tremayne continues to satisfy Sister Fidelma mavens'

'Kept me guessing right up until the end. A great read'
