ABSOLUTION BY MURDER : A SISTER FIDELMA MYSTERY
New York : Signet, 1994
||The story takes place in medieval
England in the seventh-century. King Oswy of
Northunbria has called an assembly of representatives from
Ireland, Britain and Rome to determine which Church
doctrine the Kingdom of Northumbria will follow. There is
a divide between the Irish faction and the Roman
faction. But all this takes a new direction when one
of the main speakers is murdered. Sister Fidelma, an
advocate of the courts of Ireland, is called upon to solve
the murder. Did the murder have anything to do with
the assembly? Or were there other motives involved?
This is the first of a series about Sister Fidelma.
