1 Review
Sister Fidelma originally made her debut as one of crime fiction's most interesting sleuths in short form.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. Whispers Of The Dead is the second collection of these stories to be published in the UK. 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.

The number of stars is mainly because I'm not a big fan of the short story format. I much prefer the full-length novels. Read full review
