The seventh omnibus edition of Ellis Peters' compulsive and bestselling mediaeval mysteries.
THE HOLY THIEF: At the height of the hot summer of 1144, the abbey at Ramsey is in danger. When heavy rain brings the threat of floods to Shrewsbury and the holy relics must be removed to a place of safety, the subsiding waters reveal a robbery has been committed. The master sleuthing of Brother Cadfael is put to the test once more, but to the crime of theft is soon added a murder...
BROTHER CADFAEL'S PENANCE: In the year of our Lord 1145, the bitter rift between King Stephen and Empress Maud at last has a chance of reconciliation, particularly the question of the prisoners of war. Brother Cadfael learns that amongst the prisoner is Olivier de Bretagne; his son. His determination to come to his son's aid prompts a perplexing investigation of a uniquely personal nature.
A RARE BENEDICTINE: In these three vintage tales of intrigue and treachery: 'A Light on the Road to Woodstock,' 'The Price of Light' and 'Eye Witness,' emerges the events that have turned Cadfael from a crusading and seafaring past to the momentous decision of entering the Benedictine Order in the Abbey of St Peter and St Paul at Shrewsbury.
