Investigating a murder that could require her brother the king to pay a hefty honor-price, Fidelma stumbles over two massacres of children as well as a number of other events that may or may not be related. The story culminates in a long courtroom scene, closer to Perry Mason than Brother Cadfael.
I figured out part of the whodunit but got royally snagged by some red herrings. And I don't like children-in-danger stories, period. Fidelma missed an awful lot and made some very bad decisions, which made her less likable. But Tremayne's worst offense was a deus-ex-machina rescue that almost had me throwing the book across the room in disgust. I did finish it, The title was marginally related but a refernce to Herod would have been more clever and quite appropriate.
