That it's excellent is not a Revelation

AdvantagesEngaging characters, interesting plot

DisadvantagesA bit unrealistic at times

""Revelation" is the fourth book in the Matthew Shardlake series by C. J Sansom. The Shardlake series is set in 16th century England in the reign of Henry VIII and follows the adventures of Matthew Shardlake, a hunchback lawyer. So far there are four books in the Shardlake series, "Dissolution", "Dark Fire", "Sovereign" and "Revelation". Shardlake works on commissions from Thomas Cromwell in the first two books and then for Thomas Cranmer in the following ..." Read review

Revelation by C. J. Sansom

AdvantagesA very absorbing and compelling read

DisadvantagesI don't think it's in paperpack yet and the hardback version is rather heavy to hold!

"...you to another place. Revelation is the fourth in a series of good stories written by C. J. Sansom, the first three being Dissolution, Dark Fire and Sovereign. All of these novels are set during the period of Henry VIII’s reign and written in the voice of Matthew Shardlake, a hunchback lawyer who lived and worked in London. Due to his integrity and competence, Shardlake repeatedly finds himself involved in all sorts of political and religious intrigue, ..." Read review
