Additional Information

Sister Fidelma has been sent by her brother, king of Cashel, to Laisre, chieftain of Gleann Geis - the 'forbidden valley' - to negotiate permission to build a Christian church and school in his territory, replacing the pagan Druidic sanctuaries. Laisre is known to be hostile to the new religion, and Fidelma knows her mission will be no easy task. Entering Gleann Geis with the Saxon Brother Eadulf, she comes across the naked, slain bodies of thirty-three young men, positioned in a sunwise circle. Each body bears the marks of stabbing and garrotting; every skull has been smashed. Who is reponsible for such evil, if not the heathen Laisre?

The two ride into horror. They discover the naked bodies of thirty young men. The bodies are laid out in a ritualistic circle, and every man has been garroted, stabbed, and had their skulls crushed. This is the three-fold death of the Pagan Religion. The bodies have attracted a large flock of carrion ravens, who are feasting on the unburied bodies.

The dead prove to be either religieaux or sympathetic to the cause of the Irish Christian Church. It seems they have run afoul of a helmeted, beautiful young woman who leads a band of marauders responsible for the massacre. The woman states that all people... Read more
