One Corpse Too Many
hardcover
176 pages
Second crime novel about Cadfael, monk, herbalist, and detective. In 1138 King Stephen and Empress Maud, grandchildren of William the Conqueror are fighting a civil war to decided to will inherit the throne. Shrewsbury Castle is a bastion of Maud's forces under FitzAlan and Adeney untill it's conquered by Stephen's army. 94 of Maud's soldier are killed and Brother Cadfael is called upon to prepare the 94 corpses for burial.

Things get interesting when discovers an extra dead body, which clearly shows signs of murder. Now he must discover the murderer's identity and purpose..

All the characters are having quite a modern feel to them which might not be quite historically accurate. The plot is perhaps a bit thin, but the characters are built up well and it's rather enjoyable altogether really
Recommendable!
