WHISPERS OF THE DEAD is a sumptuously rich feast of fifteeen short mystery tales, featuring the brilliant and beguiling Sister Fidelma, the seventh-century sleuth of the Celtic Church.

PRAISE FOR THE SISTER FIDELMA SERIES: 'A brilliant and beguiling heroine. Immensely appealing' Publishers Weekly, 'Definitely an Ellis Peter competitor

Sister Fidelma originally made her debut as one of crime fiction's most interesting sleuths in short story form. The sharp-witted 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.

This collection contains an astonishing range of crimes and misdemeanours and seamlessly blends historical detail, character and story into mysteries that will confound and surprise.

WHISPERS OF THE DEAD is the second collection of these stories to be published in the UK. With its breath-taking 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 WHISPERS OF THE DEAD:

'Beautifully written with style and wit'

'An excellent collection - I had a hard time putting it down'

'The Sister Fidelma novels are taking on almost cult proportions and are becoming ever more popular with each offering from the author, whose obvious knowledge of the times and subjects shine out like a beacon on the shore'
