Staff Reading Pick
Book: A Morbid Taste for Bones by Ellis Peters
Recommended by: Joseph, Adult Nonfiction Librarian
In this first novel of Brother Cadfael, the medieval monk and amateur sleuth, Peters takes us along as the Benedictine brothers travel to a small Welsh village in order to claim the relics of a neglected saint as their own. But when the community's most outspoken opponent of the relocation is murdered, Cadfael sets out to discover the killer and ends up becoming involved in the miracles attendant upon the saint. A wonderful, short mystery that has become a classic in the genre.
The television adaptation starring Derek Jacobi is also highly recommended.
