PRAISE FOR VALLEY OF THE SHADOW: ‘Tremayne’s discriminating sense of history distinguishing ever-finer conflicts… creates an equally complex mystery for history-mad readers with eyes as sharp as Fidelma’s’ Kirkus Review

Sister Fidelma has been sent by her brother, king of Cashel, to Laisre, chieftain of Gleann Geis – the ‘forbidden valley’ – to negotiate permission to build a Christian church and school in his territory, replacing the pagan Druidic sanctuaries. Laisre is known to be hostile to the new religion, and Fidelma knows her mission will be no easy task.
