On an expedition to acquire a saint's remains, Brother Cadfael instead finds intrigue and murder It is 1137, and the ambitious head of Shrewsbury Abbey wishes to acquire the remains of Saint Winifred for the glory of his Benedictine order. Brother Cadfael is part of the expedition sent to the saint's final resting place in Wales, where he finds the villagers divided over the Benedictines' quest. When the leading opponent to moving the grave is shot dead with a mysterious arrow, some believe Winifred herself delivered the blow. Brother Cadfael knows that an earthly hand did the killing. But he doesn't know that his plan to root out a murderer may dig up a case of love and justice, where the waves of sin may be scandal—or his own ruin.
A MORBID TASTE FOR BONES :Brother Cadfael has settled to a quiet life in charge of the herbarium, after an adventure-filled youth.

A MORBID TASTE FOR BONES. In 1137 the head of Shrewsbury Abbey decided to acquire the remains of St Winifred. Brother Cadfael is part of the expedition sent to her final resting place in Wales and they find the villagers passionately divided by the Benedictines' offer for the saint's relics. Canny, wise and all too worldly, Cadfael isn't surprised when this taste for bones leads to bloody murder. ONE CORPSE TOO MANY. In 1138, war between King Stephen and the Empress Maud takes Brother Cadfael from the quiet world of his garden to the bloody battlefield. Not far from the safety of the Abbey walls, Shrewsbury Castle falls, leaving its ninety-four defenders loyal to the Empress to hang as traitors. With a heavy heart, Brother Cadfael agrees to bury the dead, but discovers ninety-five bodies awaiting his attention. MONK'S-HOOD. Brother Cadfael's herb garden is flourishing under his care, then a local dignitary is poisoned with one of the herbalist's own concoctions and Cadfael finds he has to defend himself and another suspect whom he is sure is innocent.

THE COMPLETE CADFAEL CHRONICLES: 21 ebooks in one. Seventy years have passed since the conquest of England by William of Normandy. But following the death of Henry I, with no male heir, the country is divided – the armies of Henry’s daughter the Empress Maud and her cousin, King Stephen, mass to the West and East. Each would claim the crown. Beset by civil strife, caught between Stephen’s forces and the kingdoms of Wales, life in the border town of Shrewsbury continues as best it can. Even the Benedictine brothers of the Order of St Peter and St Paul cannot escape the encroaching war. And more often than not, the Abbey herbalist, a healer and skilled observer of human nature, Brother Cadfael, is called upon to use his more worldly talents in pursuit of justice. Cadfael ap Meilyr ap Dafydd (known simply as Brother Cadfael) is a Welsh monk, herbalist and apothecary of Shrewsbury Abbey. He entered the Benedictine order in 1120 after sixteen years in the armies of Britain and Normandy. As a soldier and sea captain he fought in the Holy Land, serving at the fall of Antioch and the storming of Jerusalem. As a young man, he was betrothed to Richildis Gurney, but never married. He has an illegitimate son, Olivier de Bretagne, by the Saracen widow Mariam of Antioch. This ebook contains: A RARE BENEDICTINE: The Advent of Brother Cadfael. A MORBID TASTE FOR BONES.
