England is torn between supporters of the Empress Maud and those of her cousin Stephen. The civil strife is about to jeopardize not only Cadfael’s life, but his hopes of Heaven.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> While Cadfael has sometimes bent the abbey’s rules, he has never broken his monastic vows—until now. Word has come to Shrewsbury of a treacherous act that has left thirty of Maud’s knights imprisoned. All have been ransomed except Cadfael’s secret son, Olivier de Bretagne. Conceived in Cadfael’s soldiering youth and unaware of his father’s identity, Olivier will die if he is not freed. Like never before, Cadfael must boldly defy the abbot. The good brother forsakes the order to follow his heart—but what he finds will challenge his soul.<br /><br /> “As usual, Miss Peters creates her magic, resurrecting a long-gone age and its people for our delight.” —<i>The Washington Times</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “One of the best in the Chronicles.” —<i>The Buffalo News</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “One of Cadfael’s most moving adventures, one that touches his own generous heart most closely.” —<i>Kirkus Reviews</i><br /><br /> Ellis Peters is a pseudonym of Edith Mary Pargeter (1913–1995), a British author whose Chronicles of Brother Cadfael are credited with popularizing the historical mystery.

The team’s goal is to collect the holy remains of Saint Winifred, which Prior Robert hopes will boost the abbey’s reputation, as well as his own. But when the monks arrive in Gwytherin, the town is divided over the request.<br /><br /> When the leading opponent to disturbing the grave is found shot dead with a mysterious arrow, some believe Saint Winifred herself delivered the deadly blow.

Description :  <b>A hitchhiker is caught in a murderous web</b><br /><br /> His whole life, William Banks has been trying to escape his mother, who wants desperately for him to become a lawyer. Banks wants to paint, and when he gets the opportunity to attend art school in the next county, he jumps at the chance. It’s only forty miles, but it’s a start. Getting to class, however, will be a deadly proposition.<br /><br /> On his way there, Banks is picked up by Alf, a down-on-his-luck crook who has dreamed up a plan involving a fire, a burned body, and a dead hitchhiker. By all rights, Banks shouldn’t live to see morning, but a stroke of luck—and a very helpful village girl—help him escape death without his ever knowing he was in danger. Caught up in a bizarre case of missing identity, Banks must think quickly to save his own life—once he finally realizes someone is trying to kill him.<br /><br /><b>Praise for Ellis Peters</b><br /> “A beguiling writer.” —<i>The Daily Telegraph</i><br /><br /> “A cult figure of crime fiction.” —<i>Financial Times</i><br /><br /> “Charm’s not usual in murder mysteries, but Ellis Peters’ stories are full of it.” —<i>The Mail on Sunday</i><br /><br /> Ellis Peters is a pseudonym of Edith Mary Pargeter (1913–1995), a British author whose Chronicles of Brother Cadfael are credited with popularizing the historical mystery.

Description :  <b>Buried secrets from the Nazi era threaten to destroy an Austrian composer</b><br /><br /> It’s been years since Lucas Corinth, world-renowned composer, has set foot in the town of his birth. In that time, Europe has been torn apart by war, but Gries, an exquisite little village nestled deep within the Alps, has not been touched—at least not perceptibly. In this high-altitude paradise, the scars lie just below the surface.<br /><br /> As a young man, Corinth worked with the resistance, helping refugees evade the Nazis and escape across the Swiss border. When the operation was discovered, he escaped. His best friend was not so lucky. Back in Gries as the guest of honor for the town’s annual music festival, Corinth receives a message: The past has not been forgotten, and vengeance will be exacted. Corinth was born in Gries, and if he’s not careful, he’ll die there too.<br /><br /><b>Praise for Ellis Peters</b><br /> “A beguiling writer.” —<i>The Daily Telegraph</i><br /><br /> “A cult figure of crime fiction.” —<i>Financial Times</i><br /><br /> “Charm’s not usual in murder mysteries, but Ellis Peters’ stories are full of it.” —<i>The Mail on Sunday</i><br /><br /> Ellis Peters is a pseudonym of Edith Mary Pargeter (1913–1995), a British author whose Chronicles of Brother Cadfael are credited with popularizing the historical mystery.
