Sister Fidelma-sister to the king of Muman, a religieuse, and an advocate of the Brehon law courts-is sent to investigate. En route, she encounters a Gaulish merchant ship under full sail off the Irish coast-one whose crew and cargo have vanished without a trace. Faced with a tense local situation, Fidelma must discover first the identity of the body in the well and uncover who was responsible, then find out what happened to the missing crew of the adrift merchant ship, and, finally, determine how these bizarre events are connected.

The Sister Fidelma Mysteries are unique in their setting and in the knowledge of their author, Peter Tremayne. I have never come across any other series of books set over 13 hundred years ago. They are written with so much detail of the time they are set in, that you would think Tremayne had lived in those times himself.
