When a troubled novice is blamed for the disappearance of a priest, Brother Cadfael seeks to save his soul--and his lifeOutside the pale of the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, in September of 1140, a priestly emissary for King Stephen has been reported missing. But inside the pale, what troubles Brother Cadfael is a proud, secretive nineteen-year-old novice. Brother Cadfael has never seen two men more estranged than the Lord of Aspley and Meriet, the son he coldly delivers to the abbey to begin a religious vocation. Meriet, meek by day, is so racked by dreams at night that his howls earn him the nickname?the Devil's Novice.? Shunned and feared, Meriet is soon linked to the missing priestly emissary's dreadful fate. Only Brother Cadfael believes in Meriet's innocence, and only the good sleuth can uncover the truth before a boy's pure passion, not evil intent, leads a novice to the noose.

Read the whole series years ago & loved every one!

Book 8 on the "Brother Cadfael" series and another superb story by Edith Pargeter (real name of Ellis Peters). Very well crafted, her writing is obviously not “old” English, but she brings to her words a taste of that time. I has just the right amount of mystery, intriguing characters and situations. The series of books was made into several movies with one of my favorite actors, Derek Jacobi, as Brother Cadfael. I watched the movies before reading the books and maybe that is the reason, but I can’t imagine another actor in the skin of Cadfael. When I read the books, I can’t help imagining Jacobi as the Benedictine monk!
