A servant has been murdered. The baby in her charge has been abducted. Fidelma of Cashel has solved even more horrendous crimes in her career as an advocate of the ancient Brehon Courts of Ireland. But this case is different. For both Sister Fidelma and her companion, Brother Eadulf of Saxmund's Ham, the case is unique because of the personal emotions involved. The baby who has been abducted is their son.

What is the motive for their crime? Could someone seeking vengeance on Fidelma and Eadulf have done the deed? They have made a lot of enemies in their pursuit of justice.

Fidelma and Eadulf, ignoring protests that they are too emotionally involved to undertake the investigation, set out on what proves to be one of the most dangerous cases they have ever undertaken...

Sometimes a series such as this can get a little stale after more than a dozen books, but Leper's Bell is one of the strongest Fidelma mysteries so far. A good balance between plot twists, character development, and action, all shrouded nicely in the richness of historical and cultural flavor.
