Cadfael: The Raven In The Foregate
Twelfth century Shrewsbury comes dramatically to life in Ellis Peters' bestselling story of Brother Cadfael - a good man in an evil world.
Seen on the PBS Mystery! series, this riveting tale stars Sir Derek Jacobi as Brother Cadfael, the intuitive crime-solving monk of medieval Shrewsbury. Father Ailnoth, the new parish priest, earns the scorn of all his parishioners. After refusing to baptize the illegitimate baby of a local woman, the priest is found dead in the river. With plenty of suspects but a shortage of clues, Cadfael confounds even his good friend Beringar, the Under Sheriff, in revealing just how the priest lost his life.
