A collection of short stories featuring Sister Fidelma, a nun of the Celtic Church and advocate of Ireland's ancient Brehon law courts, offers background details of her life in seventh-century Ireland.

McMillan Palgrave

Sister Fidelma-an Eognacht princess and sister to the king of Cashel, a religieuse of the Celtic Church and an advocate of the Brehornn court-is one of the most interesting and compelling figures in contemporary mystery fiction. In this collection of short mysteries, Tremayne fills in many of the background details of Fidelma and seventh-century Ireland not found in the novels, and weaves his always-beguiling mix of history and mystery.

& Taylor

A first collection of "Sister Fedelma" stories reveals why this seventhcentury royal nun is stirring the pot in the mystery world in medieval Ireland. Original.

6th century Irish 'nun'/'lawyer' solves crimes - good characterization - fascinating scenes - introductions get a bit boring (i.e., repetitive) when reading a collection like this but easily skimmed over
