Cross of Vengeance
A Mystery of Medieval IrelandBook - 2013
An unusual and beguiling murder mystery set in a sixteenth-century Ireland that is as lovely, innocent, and enchanting as Camelot—until murder befouls the setting. Mara, the Burren Brehon (maker of judgments), is wise, patient, fair, and kind, but all of these qualities are tested when a band of religious pilgrims comes through the Burren. Soon after their arrival, the Kilnaboy religious relic, which is the Burrenʼs most important attraction, is defaced and burned. Then one of the pilgrims is found murdered, his body spread-eagled and naked in crucifixion pose behind Kilnaboy Church. Determined to find the killer, Mara is completely puzzled: How did someone kill the pilgrim, who was a big man, remove his clothes, and haul him to the site where he was found? Was the killer one of the pilgrims or, more frightening, someone from the Burren?
