Pamela (bibliohound) | 248 comments I'm going to read Shroud for the Archbishop, second Sister Fidelma book. I enjoyed the first one so looking forward to it.

Sandy | 1137 comments I've finished Absolution by Murder and give it high marks for atmosphere and history but thought the characters were lifeless. As the series continues for thirty-ish books I must be in the minority, or the author improves. I doubt I will continue the series as I have too many in process already.

The series improves a bit. He starts having these mandatory characterization scenes to develop Fidelma usually at the end of the book. Let's just say that characterization is not his strength as a writer. He's actually a historian.

Pamela (bibliohound) | 248 comments I've just finished Shroud for the Archbishop, book #2 in the series. I quite liked the mystery and enjoy the relationship between Fidelma and Eadulf. There is a lot of historical background - this mystery is set in Rome and we learn lots about the history of the Catholic Church in Rome, its churches, catacombs etc - but it's not always integrated well into the story, it feels a bit like a text book at times. Still, I would definitely read more of this series.
