It is Christmas, A.D. 1141, Abbot Radulfus returns from London, bringing with him a priest for the vacant living of Holy Cross, also known as the Foregate. The new priest is a man of presence, learning, and discipline, but he lacks humility and the common touch. When he is found drowned in the millpond, suspicion is cast upon a young man who arrived with the priest's train and was sent to work in Brother Cadfael's garden. Indeed, he is soon discovered to be an impostor. To Brother Cadfael, now falls the familiar task of sorting out the complicated strands of innocence and guilt.

3.0 The Raven in the Foregate: The Twelfth Chronicle of Brother Cadfael (Brother Cadfael Mysteries)
King Stephen is back on the throne of England but Brother Cadfael and company are more concerned with a local death. This is the first book in the series that I have actually read and, while I did miss Patrick Tull's narration, the mix of history and mystery along with the great characters made it ...

5.0 The Raven in the Foregate
I love Brother Cadfael, and now that I've seen the series with Derek Jacobi, I find myself picturing him in my head when I read Ellis Peters's books starring the former Crusader-turned-monk/detective.
