This was quite a surprise. It actually exceeded my expectations for a first historic mystery novel. I picked it up quite by chance as I'm intrigued by all things Scottish and/or Medieval and this seemed as if it would fit the bill. Muirteach McPhee is tasked with finding the murderer of his father a not-so-holy prior.And it goes on from there. Great characters, great scenery and except for one itty-bitty-nit, great history. I have never heard of Tir Na Nog referenced as a Scottish story and so the reference to it seems a bit out of place. I could be wrong but I've just never seen it with any Scottish connotation at all.I liked this so much I bought the next 2 in the series so I'm off to #2!
