The Abbey of Imleach, in the south-west Irish kingdom of Muman, now rivals Armagh as the centre of the faith in Ireland. For the founder of the abbey was none other than St Ailbe, the man who brought Christianity to Muman, converted its king and baptised him at Cashel in AD448. But now, calamity has struck the community of the abbey. Not only has an elderly monk suddenly disappeared, but the holy relics of St Ailbe have also vanished. These sacred relics are not just the concern of the abbey's community but are a priceless icon and political symbol of the entire kingdom. So who would have dared to take them? Sister Fidelma, together with Saxon Brother Eadulf, are asked to investigate. It seems there is more to the disappearances than meets the eye; much more. Fidelma gradually uncovers a sinister conspiracy, in which the participants will stop at nothing - even murder - to achieve their aims ...

The Monk Who Vanished is the seventh novel in the Sister Fidelma series. Sister Fidelma of Cashel, a town in Ireland, lived in the seventh century A.D. Although most of Europe was suffering the Dark Ages, Ireland was a progressive land where gender discrimination was rare. In Ireland any citizen could aspire to any profession. Sister is a very talented and accomplished woman. Fidlema has a graduate education where she earned the degree of anruth, similar to a masters degree today. Fidelma works as a dalaigh, an advocate in the courts. As an advocate she investigates problems and crimes and advises both church and civil authorities. A dalaigh may prosecute, defend, or even serve as judge in a criminal proceeding.

This is a tale of political intreague. The story begins with the disappearance of a monk, Brother Mochta, and the holy relics from the Abbey at Imleach. Shortly after the priceless holy relics, symbols of the power of the King, disappear, King Colgu of Cashel and Prince Donennach of the Ui Fedgente are shot in an assassination attempt.
The Ui Fedgente, a longtime enemy of Cashel, accuse Colgu of plotting the assassination, which Colgu denies. A hearing is ordered and Sister Fidlema agrees to investigate.

The case is very complex, the assailants were quickly killed and there were no witnesses to the theft of the holy relics. Fidelma faces further confusion as various organizations and people attempt to influence her. Have the Ui Fedgente plotted this themselves to give them and advantage over Cashel? Did someone in Fidlema's own kingdom devise a plot to unseat their own king? Is there some outside agency or force behind this?

Fidlema conducts the investigation with her usual energy and wit but encounters numerous barriers that interfere with her progress. Many of the people she interviews attempt to control her efforts. Some people lie to Sister, while others avoid her or simply do not answer her questions. Sister is led on false trails. Fidlema becomes suspicious that she is up against an organized resistence.

This is a rousing tale full of action and intrigue. The characters appear to be real people full of doubts, agendas, fears, and flaws. This is a good story that kept me interested. I recommend this book.

I am a student of Celtic history, particularly Celtic Christianity. I am also a fan of mystery stories. I do not mind in the least that sometimes I tend to forget the plot while discovering some insight into Irish Celtic culture or into the tension between the Roman Church and the Celts. Not a problem, as the plot is compelling and this book is a great read.

I do like the Sister Fidelma books but every once in a while I read one that annoys me a bit because the she takes so long understand what is obviously going on, ex. Suffer Little Children. Then, since her sidekicks (generally Brother Eadulf) is supposed to be behind her in figuring it out they end up excessively... well let's just say it take them waaay too long to figure anything. However, a bright bit in this book is Brother Eadulf's bravery and heroism (I do like him a lot ) that I won't tell you about and you'll just have to read.

I admit it I am a fan of this series. I love medieval history, but did not know that Irish medieval history was so different than English and more enlightened. Peter Tremayne is a scholar in this area and his combining of History and mystery is great for the person like me who likes both.

Fidelma always has a twist, leaving one always unsure about whO is going to be the baddie! Love the different slant on religious history as well, gives one food for thought, that things have not always been the way we think it has!
