Suffer Little Children (Sister Fidelma Mysteries Book 3)

Sister Fidelma follows a trail that is as suspenseful as it is tortuous in the riveting third novel in Peter Tremayne’s unputdownable series.

PRAISE FOR THE SISTER FIDELMA SERIES: ‘Tremayne’s super-sleuth is a vibrant creation’ Morgan Llywelyn, ‘A brilliant and beguiling heroine. Immensely appealing’ Publishers Weekly

In the mid-7th Century AD, the Venerable Dacán, a much respected and beloved scholar of the Celtic Church, has been found murdered while on a visit to a remote abbey in the Irish Kingdom of Muman. When Dacán’s foul death is used by a neighbouring kingdom to demand reparation from Muman, bloody war seems imminent. Summoned by Muman’s dying king to investigate, Sister Fidelma is asked to solve the mystery of the brutal killing and by doing so to prevent the inevitable war breaking out between the two opposing kingdoms. She sets out for the remote abbey with a warrior named Cass – and very little time. But there are more sinister forces at work behind Dacán’s death than just political intrigue…
