by C. J. Sansom

Dr Matthew Shardlake is not an obvious hero; the lawyer’s hunchback often makes him the subject of mockery but his charm and brain make him one of the most interesting detectives in fiction. C. J. Sansom’s atmospheric descriptions of Tudor life complement the sleuthing and will transport you back in time. This is the seventh story in the series and takes place two years after the death of Henry VIII. Against a backdrop of religious upheaval, war, economic collapse and rebellion, Matthew Shardlake must investigate the murder of Edith Boleyn, a distant relative of the future Queen Elizabeth.
