Sister Fidelma returns in The House of Death, the 32nd Celtic mystery by Peter Tremayne, acclaimed author of The Shapeshifter's Lair, Blood in Eden and Bloodmoon. If you love Ellis Peters, you'll be gripped by The House of Death and the Sister Fidelma series.

Ireland. AD 672. 

The Feast of Beltaine is approaching, and the seven senior princes of the kingdom of Muman are gathering at Cashel to discuss King Colgú's policies. Just days before the council meets, Brother Conchobhar, the keeper of the sacred sword, is found murdered.

Sister Fidelma and her brother, Colgú, fear that the killer had been trying to steal the sword that symbolises the king's authority to rule. And as rumours begin to spread of an attempt to overthrow Colgú, news reaches Cashel that a plague ship has landed at a nearby port, bringing the deadly pestilence to its shores. Amid fear and panic, Fidelma, Eadulf and Enda must work together to catch a killer as the death toll starts to mount....
