An Excellent Mystery
by Ellis Peters. This is the eleventh of the Brother Cadfael mystery series. Amid the continuing
civil war, which gets closer the Shrewsbury with the sacking of nearby Benedictine abbeys and
convents, two refugee brothers show up at the abbey. They bring with them some mystery including
a 3-year old missing person story. Brother Cadfael and Hugh Beringer work together to unravel the
mystery with discretion so as not to bring disaster. The book definitely lives up to its title.
