I spent the first half of the book INSANELY confused as to why it kept jumping between a present day murder mystery, an eighth-century monastery, and England in 1947. To the point where I actually said "Why the hell is this at all relevant?!?!" out loud a couple of times.

But in the second half of the book, everything pulled together, and it all made sense. Well, mostly. I'm still not entirely sure why (view spoiler) if you don't know where or how... And the ending was a bit "Dun dun DUUUUUUUUUUUN" for my liking.

That said, it was still an enjoyable (if at times confusing!) read.
