One Corpse Too Many by Ellis Peters

This was an interesting and fun read! It is part of a series of mysteries starring Brother Cadfael. Brother Cadfael is a monk who has had a fascinating past first as a soldier in The Crusades and as a sailor. At some point in his life he left behind the wiles of the world and chose a devotion to God. In this story a war is raged between two monarchs and in the aftermath of battle many are taken prisioner. These, too, must die and the monks led by Brother Cadfael must care for the dead. Brother Cadfael, however, finds one corpse different from the others and hunt for a killer begins. This was different from other mysteries I have read, and I came to truly enjoy it. I followed the clues along with Brother Cadfael and was as surprised along the way as was he. I would recommend these books to anyone who loves mysteries and history.
