Dead Man's Ransom
A medieval Brother Cadfael detective story
Ellis Peters (pen name of Edith Pargeter) was awarded the Crime Writers' Association and the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award for her medieval whodunnits. Philip Madoc stars as Brother Cadfael, priest-turned-sleuth, solving mysteries in Shrewsbury in a series of BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisations that teem with twelfth-century suspense.
In Dead Man's Ransom, Brother Cadfael is drawn from the peace of the Abbey to the civil war raging in the outside world and uncovers a tale of mystery, murder, romance and deceit.
Five episodes of approx 30 minutes each in high quality MP3.
Adapted by Bert Coules and produced by Neil Cargill.
