    Peter Tremayne í 9 SUMMARY Absolution by Murder (PDF) What to label Absolution by Murder? Celtic propaganda? A hit piece on ancient Angle Saxon and Roman cultures? A theological and philosophical debate? A sexless romance novel? A murder mystery?

    Absolution by Murder (PDF) Great setting and a time and place I knew next to nothing about It was fun to hear the echoes of How the Irish Saved Civilization And it's a fairly competent mystery; although the minor characters are cutouts and like others I suspected the perp all along I didn't really put it together until the denouement But I agree with other tw

No wild beasts are so cruel as the Christians in their dealings with each other Ammianus Marcellinus c AD 330 95The mid 7th century was a time of many conflicts both religious and political Although Europe was becoming universally Christian there were conflicts between Rome and other factions In this novel the leaders of the Celtic Church of Ireland and the leaders of the Church of Rome meet in the land of the Saxons for a synod to clear up some points of contentionOn the opening day of the synod an Abbess on the Columbra side Iona Ireland and other Celtic nations is murdered She was well known for her oratory skills and the synod was nearly derailed at this point as rumours began to break out that it was a power play by the Rome delegation or the attempt to make it look like one by the Columbra delegationOswy the King could see not just the disintegration of the synod but also the possibility of this being used as a political power play to destroy his hard earned kingdom Abbess Hilda and King Oswy reuested Sister Fidelma s assistance to discover the murderer The King also imposed the condition that Sister Fidelma work together with Brother Eadulf of the SaxonsSo why would Sister Fidelma be asked by such high ranking people to sort this mess out Some background information might help here During this time and for a few centuries prior and later under Brehon Law women had rights and protection than any other western law code at that time or sinceAlthough this time is referred to as the Dark Ages for Europe in Ireland it was a period of Golden Enlightenment Schools and universities thrived as Ireland was the center of knowledge and students from all over Europe including royalty and through to the highest ranks of other scholars went there to become educatedStudents included both sexes and women accelerated as uickly through the levels of educational hierarchies as did men with the same abilities and intelligence Sister Fidelma was one of these and she achieved the level of anruth which is just one degree from the top level of ollamh or professor This ualified her to investigate all situations of law and to advise the highest levels of politics and religion on all matters of law as an eualAs Sister Fidelma and Brother Eadulf continue to investigate the murder the synod limps along loudly and with passionate outbursts on both sides There follows another murder and soon the pressure is mounting to resolve these before a permanent break down occurs in the synod andor a civil war takes placeThis is a fascinating book about a time in history that is eually fascinating As the opening uote suggests we must remember that these were known as the Dark Ages for a reason Many Angles Saxons and other factions of people at the time were completely ignorant Many could not read or write and many never learned to reason They were ruled by and through fear Make the punishments severe and grotesue enough and surely people will stay on the path laid out for them Of course if that reasoning really worked there would not have been the many bodies killed and strewn about for other people to witness Although some of that does occur in this book there are also people who care enough about the barbarity to recognize that changes need to be made and are willing to dedicate their lives to effecting those changes In other words although there are times in this book that are not pretty there is hopeI have read several books in this series but I also missed several as the Library didn t have access to many of the earlier ones and many times I would also have to read them out of order I am looking forward to proceeding through the gaps and reading as many of this series as I can in the coming year

It was ok I am willing to give Tremayne the benefit of the doubt and just assume he hadn t yet uite figured out his fiction voice yet since this WAS the first fiction book he d written His history books are better and he is clearly comfortable with that genre since he was simply unable to refrain from adding in somewhat irrelevant historical facts to this book It wasn t terrible just not very good I think he also needs a better editor I found numerous grammatical errors and a few times he would use one word when clearly he meant a different word like using indifferent instead of diffident And his characters grimaced a lot So his fictional writing style needs some polishing It was a predictable plot as well I figured out who did it almost first thing and it was confirmed in the immediate aftermath of Etain s murder I did like Sister Fidelma though and will most likely be reading of this series I have a weakness for medieval mysteries AND Ireland so between the two the series does have a continuing hold on me I just won t be running out logging on really but whatever to buy the next one But I am sure I will eventually
