Story by Story review

I'm going to attempt to do another in-depth story-by-story review, this time of something *not* in the SF/F field. The book is "Thou Shalt Not Kill," a fairly old (1992) anthology of mystery stories by ecclesiastical sleuths. This includes stories about Brother Cadfael, who I've already met and loved through multiple novels, and Rumpole of the Bailey, who I've encountered only through a very dour and pessimistic - but also very entertaining - British TV series of the same name. I'm particularly eager to see these two, especially as I'm pretty sure I've seen the episode based on this specific Rumpole story. (The Cadfael TV movies were all based on the books, and so far they've been pretty fair adaptations.)
