Inhaltsangabe: Eastern horsemen rampage across the European mainland, trampling underfoot the emergent kingdoms, unwieldy empires, and fledgling principalities that comprise medieval France and Germany. These are the Tartars, and in 1268 they reach the end of a long ride. Now, having driven their pillage to the very ends of the earth, they cross the English Channel under a banner of peace. They claim to seek audience with the king - but can they be trusted?
The people of Oxford, as unwilling hosts to the Tartar delegation, greet their arriving guests with cold silence. When the visitors stage an enormous banquet outside the city walls, that silence gives way to a sense of murky foreboding. Within hours, the Tartar ambassador is dead. It appears someone murdered him, but how? Magic?
Master William Falconer doesn't think so. On the case once again, this committed scientist knows a rational explanation lay behind the emissary's death . . . or he thinks he knows. But the numbers just don't add up, and before the mystery is solved, Master William may come to doubt his own methods. And, even if he figures out the murder, the great Falconer must still trick the murderer into revealing himself.
Falconer and The Great Beast chronicles the medieval sleuth's fifth case - his most complicated yet - in this classic murder mystery series.
Vom Hörbuch: Move over, Brother Cadfael! Falconer is a worldly priest, teaching and solving crimes in Oxford during the time of Henry II. The great beast of the title is an elephant, a gift to His Majesty from the Mongol delegation that has come for secret negotiations on behalf of Kublai Khan. When the principal delegate falls victim to an unknown assassin, Falconer must unearth the perpetrator. This brief historical whodunit offers vividly drawn characters and an intriguing plot. Narrator Stephen Thorne underplays the dramatic moments and excels at impersonating the dramatis personae. Y.R. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
