From Peter Tremayne, highly acclaimed author of THE DEVIL’S SEAL and THE SECOND DEATH, comes a digital short story featuring much-loved Irish super-sleuth Sister Fidelma.

PRAISE FOR THE SISTER FIDELMA SERIES: ‘The Sister Fidelma books give the readers a rattling good yarn. But more than that, they bring vividly and viscerally to life the fascinating lost world of the Celtic Irish’ Ronan Bennett

When Sister Fidelma arrives at the great Abbey of Durrow on a visit to her old mentor Abbot Laisran, she finds the community reeling from an act of murder.

One of their membership, Brother Sioda, has been discovered in his cell with multiple stab wounds to the heart. Everyone is certain that the eccentric Sister Scathach, who foretold the event through whisperings from the Otherworld, is responsible.

But Sister Fidelma could never accept such an explanation. For sometimes it is the simplest solutions that hide the most unexpected truths . . .

*Contains an extract from THE SECOND DEATH, Peter Tremayne’s 26th mystery featuring Sister Fidelma*
