As an advocate she investigates problems and crimes and advises both church and civil authorities. A dalaigh may prosecute, defend, or even serve as judge in a criminal proceeding. A Prayer for the Damned is the seventeenth in the Sister Fidelma series. As this story begins, Fidelma and her partner Brother Eadulf are preparing for their wedding ceremony. Since Fidelma is also the sister of the local king, distinguished guests from throughout Ireland have gathered for the celebration.
