The ruler of Riseholme, happier than he of Russia, had no need to fear the finger of Bolshevism writing on the wall, for there was not in the whole of that vat which seethed so pleasantly with culture, one bubble of revolutionary ferment.

This debut, which was nominated for the Best First Edgar, had a lot of potential but I felt the storyline had far too much going on and that the characterizations were weak.

I’ve watched quite a few episodes of Scooby Doo, The Road Runner, and Looney Tunes in my time, so a lot of the twists and turns in this story were spoilered for me long before I started listening to this book. Also, for many years, after I first heard the title of this book in high school, I though...

Cadfael must sort through a thorny mystery involving a young widow and the house she rents to the monks for the yearly price of a single rose. Listened to the audio version read by the always professional Nadia May.
