In all, Pargeter wrote twenty Cadfael novels between 1977 and 1994. Each draws upon the storyline, characters, and developments of previous books in the series.

Among the throng of pilgrims, some strange customers indeed begin to puzzle Brother Cadfael, and as events unfold it becomes clear that the murder is a much less remote affair that it first seemed. An Excellent Mystery: In 1141 England is still torn by civic strife. Among the victims of the carnage is the Abbey of Hyde Meade, totally destroyed. But as its brothers attempt to rebuild their lives, old wounds are re-opened, painfully relived and harsh deeds committed. Only Brother Cadfael can ultimately distinguish between victim, innocent and guilty party.

The Sanctuary Sparrow: Sudden drama strikes the Benadictine monastery at Shrewsbury when a young man, pursued by a lynching mob, claims sanctuary just in time to save his life. Cadfael senses the young man’s innocence and sets out to solve yet another tangle of human passions where love plays its inevitable part. The Devil’s Novice: The Benedictine monastery at Shrewsbury finds its new novice Meriet Aspley a disturbing presence. As events take a sinister turn, it falls to Brother Cadfael to detect the truth behind the young man’s predicament.

3 novels in one book in the Brother Cafael series: #9: Dead Man's Ransom; #10 The Pilgrim of Hate and # 11 An Excellent Mystery. DEAD MAN'S RANSOM: The year is 1141 and civil war continues to rage. When the sheriff of Shropshire is taken prisoner, arrangements are made to exchange him for Elis, a young Welshman. But when the sheriff is brought to the abbey, he is murdered. Suspicion falls on Elis, who has fallen in love with the sheriff's daughter. With nothing but his Welsh honor to protect him, Elis appeals to Brother Cadfael for help. And Brother Cadfael gives it, not knowing that the truth will be a trial for his own soul. THE PILGRIM OF HATE: The fourth anniversary of the transfer of Saint Winifred's bones to the Abbey at Shrewsbury is a time of celebration for the 12th-century pilgrims gathering from far and wide. In distant Winchester, however, a knight has been murdered. Could it be because he was a supporter of the Empress Maud, one of numerous pretenders to the throne? It's up to herbalist, sleuth, and Benedictine monk Brother Cadfael to track down the killer in the pious throng. AN EXCELLENT MYSTERY: In 1141, two monks have arrived in Shrewsbury from Winchester, where their abbey was destroyed. Now Brother Humilis, who is very ill, and Brother Fidelis, who is mute, must seek refuge at Shrewsbury. And from the moment he meets them, Brother Cadfael senses something deeper than their common vows binds these two brothers. And as Brother Humilis's health fails, Brother Cadfael faces a poignant test of his discretion and his beliefs as he unravels a secret so great it can destroy a life, a future, and a holy order.
  • There are about 20 novels in the Brother Cadfael series. I recommend you read them in order, as characters and events reappear in the later novels. In this omnibus, 'Raven in the Foregate' comes first, then 'The Rose Rent', then 'The Hermit of Eyton Forest'.

    Though one of the weaker novels, 'The Raven in the Foregate' is still well worth reading. Peters is a master of evocative descriptions, making it seem that you are watching the action along the Severn river.

    'The Rose Rent' is a gem. Like nearly all of Peters' plots, everything fits together and actions lead logically to one another.

    'The Hermit of Eyton Forest' links into a recurring theme in the series: the struggle between King Stephen and Empress Maud for control of England. Neither is strong enough to destroy the other, but together they are ruining the country.


  • I enjoyed the Brother Cadfael mysteries when they ran them on PBS - the Cadfael in the books is a bit different, but just as interesting. The writing is good and the characters are well-defined. You step back into the 12th century and learn a lot about the times and the church while you enjoy a good mystery. Also, the font in the book is large and easy to read.

  • Ironically, these three books fall near the middle of the 'Brother Cadfael' series, and they're three of my favorites. Ellis Peters was a first-class constructionist, with a truly Celtic sense of linguistic rhythm, and an excellent, even-handed grasp of the political stresses of the day. Very enjoyable read.

  • Ellis Peters is a little below her usual style in these books, especially below her great books like "One Corpse Too Many" or "The Virgin In The Ice." But these are still worth reading. They would be worth reading even just for the conversations between Cadfael and Hugh Beringar.

    Also, in the edition I received, pages 156-7 of "The Rose Rent" were actually pages 156-7 of a completely different book.

  • I watched the Cadfael series on PBS back in the 80's and decided to read the books. There is a lot more detail in the books that make it easier to understand what life was like almost 600 years ago.

  • Great book if you are into monks and things

  • Always enjoyed a good Cadfael mystery

  • Good book, fast service from the UK, and condition as advertised. I am very pleased with it.
