A Morbid Taste for Bones
by Ellis Peters (Macmillan, 1977); audiobook read by Johanna Ward (Blackstone, 1996)
More notable for its elegant prose and depiction of the Welsh people (High Middle Ages) than its rather slight mystery. Brother Cadfael is immensely likeable but doesn’t so much investigate matters as discern the ineffable truth and nudge events along. Audiobook recommended.
