The Virgin in the Ice - Ellis Peters
A monk is found on the road, nearly dead, and his fevered ravings may lead them to the missing children. But on the way, Cadfael happens open the scene of a gruesome murder, which leads him to believe there’s far more going on than just three missing young people.
This story does end up being very layered – a lot of stuff packed into such a slim volume. I think that’s what I like so much about these books – there’s always a central mystery, but so much else is going on in the world of these stories- they’re so interesting to read.
