Can you elaborate on why you think they're "very similar", apart from being religious men who solve murder mysteries? I've read those books, and I'm really not seeing it.

Hi folks I need a bit of help with an example(s) from a Special Efforts thread. See InstantDeathBullet Sandbox for more details Links to threads are in the description.

Any help, suggestions, or other info can be posted to The Special Efforts thread

Are guns ever used in the seires even primitive early guns? If so are they instant death bullet occurences?

The below example may fit better under an archery trope.

  • In the Brother Cadfael series, they are instant death crossbow bolts.
