The novels, set mainly in 7th century Ireland, also include a great deal of history, which is not surprising given that the author is actually Peter Berresford Ellis, a noted Celtic historian. Some of the essays analyze aspects of the novels, focusing especially on the protagonist and her partner in detection and, ultimately, husband, Brother Eadulf. Other essays place Fidelma and the novels within the tradition of detective fiction.

Still others explore the historical, intellectual, spiritual and geographical contexts for her labors. Also included are accounts of the novels appearance in print in the Irish language, the authors career, the International Sister Fidelma Society, and the biennial Sister Fidelma conferences held in Cashel, Ireland.
