    C. J. Sansom's whole Shardlake Tudor mystery series is terrific. I have enjoyed every one of the books, beginning with Dissolution.

    This is the 3rd. Sansom book I've read and the 3rd in the series of The Shardlake Mysteries. I have enjoyed all 3 and I think this one was my favorite. Each book takes the reader through some important event in the Tudor period of

    A friend bought 5 of this series at a discount book store and she asked if I'd be interested in reading them. I love historical novels and this was a chance to read a historical mystery. I was hooked about 20 pages in and finished the first book in about 2 days. Then I read the second and ordered this book because it was the only one that the bookstore didn't have. It's an absolute page turning just like the 2 before i

    I have to agree with the one and two star reviewers as to the flaws in this book but I'll give it a 3 or maybe 3+ because I did find it good enough to go ahead and finish.

    My third Shardlake read and, whilst I've enjoyed them all, this is my least favourite. For two reasons: one, now I'm in the the groove of how these stories pan out I'd worked out the real culprit by half way through; two, for some strange reason Ransom feels the need to give the York characters broad accents this results i

    This is the third Matthew Shardlake novel, following on from Dissolution and Dark Fire. Shardlake is now a much established character, with Jack Barak as his foil and sidekick, and this is a much assured novel (which, considering how excellent the first two books are is very impressive). It is 1541 and, after the fall of Cromwell,
