I appreciate the wonderful way Ellis Peters had with descriptive prose to give me such a vivid sense of the world she has set these characters in. This novel has so much of the activity take place outside the walls of the Benedictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul and it was important to be able to picture exactly what the landscape was like. I also was interested in getting to know Hugh Beringar, presented with a personality which seemed as if it could go toward good or evil and I wasn't quite sure until almost the end of the novel how to react to him. Brother Cadfael has been given a young lad, Godric, to help him in the gardens of the Abbey while the world outside those walls shifts according to allegiance with King Stephen or his sister Queen Maud, both claiming the right to rule. When the battle for Shrewsbury is finished Brother Cadfael is given the responsibility of taking care of the disposal of the dead. Among those hanged for treason by King Stephen he finds one corpse who never was killed by the hangman's noose.

A thoroughly enjoyable story of life in the perilous times of 1138 England. This author is definitely high on my list for reading pleasure because she places the focus on what happens to the characters in this time period instead of the often unhealthy living conditions. Her mysteries are well plotted and keep you wondering throughout concerning who will be guilty of the crime.

While this may be Ms. Peter's first Brother Cadfael mystery, you'll feel like you've known him for years. If you've seen the 90's television series starring Derek Jacobi, I guarantee you'll hear his voice narrating this to you, as Derek Jacobi did such a fine job bringing this character to life. In closing, I think you'll find this quite a great series of period detective novels - and "One Corpse Too Many" is a great way to get to know one of literary world's great detectives - Brother Cadfael!

If you like/love historical mysteries and you haven't read Ellis Peter's Brother Cadfael series - you've really been missing out. I started the series in 1982 with number 6, "A Virgin in the Ice," and it's still my favorite. "One Corpse too Many" is the second one and this is where the historical background moves into the foreground. Either "Corpse" or "Virgin" are good places to begin. The first book, "A Morbid Taste for Bones" is interesting, but not a favorite. It functions as a prequel to the series. You don't have to read them in order, but once you get past the earlier books, you do lose a lot of story nuances if you don't read them mostly in order.

Brother Cadfael is a Benedictine monk with an herb garden who went into the monastery after serving as a man of arms in the Crusades. The specific time period is the civil war (the Anarchy) between two heirs of Henry I. Sometimes the war features in the book, as in this case, some times it doesn't. Sometimes religion is a factor, sometimes not.

Brother Cadfael uses his knowledge of herbs and people to solve a variety of crimes.

Peters' settings (and the descriptions of them) are gorgeous and the mysteries well done.

Run, don't walk, to read these. Peters' (real name Edith Pargeter) mediocre books are better than most peoples' great books. (I like her modern series featuring Inspector Felse and his family too, but they can be hard to find.)

There was also a TV series with Derek Jacobi as Brother Cadfael. The series didn't work for me mostly because the stories lacked, as videos frequently do, the depth of the books. The fact that they were presented out of sequence didn't help. The actor who played Hugh Beringar in series 2 & 3 didn't work for me because he didn't look - or act - as described in the books. I keep meaning to go back and see if time has mellowed my opinion.

After the battle of Shrewsbury castle, Brother Cadfael prepares the executed defenders for burial. There are supposed to be 94 corpses but he counts 95 bodies. An examination determines that one person was not slain in execution but was most foully strangled and his body left with the dead defenders. King Stephan grants Brother Cadfael permission to find the murderer.

Then things get complicated. It is discovered that there is a treasure to be found which the castle's defenders intended to be smuggled out to use in the fight against King Stephen. There is also a Lady of the castle in hiding that, if captured, could be used as a pawn by the king. A love interest develops between the lady, disguised as a boy, and a squire charged with saving the treasure from King Stephan. Cadfael is soon engaged in a battle of wits with a lord Beringer who is determined to seize the treasure and the lady for the king. Beringer himself had been betrothed to the lady but he has another lady that he is smitten with. Can Cadfael bring these events to a happy conclusion and then get on with discovering the murderer? Or, is this all tied in together?

I found this to be a very interesting story with good characters, fine dialogue and interesting plots and subplots. The wording may have been a bit ponderous at times but that all helped to keep the feeling of the time period. The book length may only be listed as 181 pages but it seems to read as being much longer than that.

I am rereading all of the Brother Cadfael books in order to get a more coherent look at the series, which is a top favorite.. I thought I read this years ago but did not remember any of it so perhaps not.

It was wonderful to read about how he and Hugh Beringar made their acquaintance, although it is often alluded to. A sad and desperate time in England with King Stephen and Empress Matilda warring over the throne. About Shropshire I learned this: "Historically, the county has been known as Shropshire as well as by its older, Norman-derived name of Salop." Since my L'Enfant family was here at some early stage from Normandy, it speaks to me.

Cadfael's evolution from soldier and adventurer in the Crusades to monk in Shrewsbury gets fleshed out even more. Love this series and understand why it was made into a series of TV movies
