Description

Super sleuth Sister Fidelma returns in the eighth historical mystery by Peter Tremayne, acclaimed author of THE MONK WHO VANISHED, VALLEY OF THE SHADOW and many more. PRAISE FOR ACT OF MERCY: 'Wonderfully evocative' The Times When Sister Fidelma sets out on a pilgrimage in the autumn of AD 666, her main preoccupation is to reflect on her commitment to the religious life and her relationship with the Saxon monk, Eadulf, whom she has left behind.

Complications arise during the first night on the ship when one of the pilgrims is apparently washed overboard.

The discovery of a blood-stained robe raises the question of murder and Fidelma finds herself having to focus all her abilities on solving the mystery.

Death dogs the tiny band of pilgrims in the close confines of the ship, but is not until the Holy Shrine is almost reached that the amazing truth is uncovered...

What readers are saying about ACT OF MERCY:'I never tire of reading about the escapades of this very self-opinionated young woman and her interactions with some very strange characters!

Another great read!''So many twists I could not put it down!

Pilgrims and pirates - Fidelma has trouble finding the truth''An intriguing glimpse of Fidelma's interior life and past'
