Aside from the heresy issues, which play a fairly peripheral role in the actual crime in question, this is a fairly standard (by Brother Cadfael standards) murder mystery. As always, romance plays a big role in both the heresy subplot and the murder investigation.
I normally give 4 stars to Brother Cadfael mysteries. I'm giving 5 here for the added value supplied by the heresy issues. Those who have no interest in theology and church history might want to give it a 3.
The Cadfael historical-thriller-mysteries keep multiple character lines skillfully afloat.
You find yourself invested and hoping for a certain outcome. You'll also find re-reading even more satisfying.
