Dead Man's Ransom summary Ö 108 Man But when the sheriff is brought to the abbey he is murdered Suspicion falls on Elis who has fallen in love with the sheriff's daughter With nothing but hi. The Cadfael series has a well established reputation of being high uality historical mysteries They do fall into two camps the narrative dominated by the mystery and the book that progresses the historical events that are effecting England at that time This book in the series is part of the latter Much of the story revolves around the civil war and the way the lords of the land manipulated the unrest to their own advantage We return to the border country to the west of Shrewsbury and to the uneasy and turbulent alliance with the Welsh border lords Owain Gwynedd is an honourable man and doesn t want to fight a losing battle with his English neighbours An exchange of men for the seriously wounded Sheriff of Shrewsbury is thwarted when he suddenly dies Cadfael realises the death is an unnatural one and investigatesThe plot is a simple one albeit an enjoyable read So much of the peace of the county rests on determining who was the murderer and bringing them to justice as soon as possible so that the air is clear on both sides Chivalry plays a very important part in the storyline something that is easily forgotten in our contemporary timesThe murder is really the side plot that drives the narrative The real story is the social civil and political unrest during a very messy period often recorded as the Anarchy or petty civil war between Empress Maud and King Stephen
