In February of 668 A.D., Fidelma of Cashel and her companion Eadulf are about to get permanently married. As the sister to the King of Muman, Fidelma's marriage ceremony is a major event; the High King of Ireland, as well as other kings and major figures, are going to be in attendance. On the eve of the ceremony, the fanatical and much disliked Abbot Ultan is found murdered in his chamber and one of the distinguished guests, the King of Connacht, is accused of the crime. Her wedding delayed, the high born guests restless, and the murder and its aftermath threatening chaos, it's up to Fidelma to uncover the murderer - and the truth behind the murder itself - if the often tenuous peace of the land is to be maintained.

Praise for A Prayer for the Damned

"A Prayer for the Damned is a blessing for the millions of Sister Fidelma's devoted fans around the world. [She] is a vibrant creation, a woman of wit and courage who would be outstanding in any era, but brings a special sparkle to the wild beauty of medieval Ireland. The  author sets the scene with meticulous care and develops the plot with intelligence. Well done!" --Morgan Llywelyn, best-selling author of Finn Mac Cool and The Last Prince of Ireland
 
"Tremayne writes so authentically about this remote time period that readers will feel they are there in every way. His densely plotted stories are a delight for those who love puzzle mysteries." --Library Journal (starred review) on Master of Souls
