Publisher's Summary

Sister Fidelma - an Eognacht princess and sister to the king of Cashel, a religieuse of the Celtic Church and an advocate of the Brehornn court-is one of the most interesting and compelling figures in contemporary mystery fiction. In this collection of short mysteries, Tremayne fills in many of the background details of Fidelma and seventh-century Ireland not found in the novels, and weaves his always-beguiling mix of history and mystery.

Lots of Sister Fidelma.

This book had so many stories, I began to get lost with the characters.

The timeline explanation at the beginning was very helpful.

The beginning of Fadelma...

I liked learning how the author developed the Fadelma character and how she began her reputation.

Short stories of a female medieval Irish detective

Enjoyed most of the stories, though some are a tad dry. Excellent narrator. I enjoy the short story format on Audible for Sister Fidelma more than the regular book version. On the whole, I found it to be entertaining and informative.

Fills in gaps and rounds out Fidelma!

Wonderful! Thank you to production team and especially the narrator! These short stories provide some great background to Fidelma's personality.
