AdvantagesEngaging characters, interesting plot

DisadvantagesA bit unrealistic at times

So far there are four books in the Shardlake series, "Dissolution", "Dark Fire", "Sovereign" and "Revelation".

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

When an old friend is horrifically murdered Shardlake vows to bring the killer to justice. His search leads him to Cranmer and Catherine Parr - and to the dark prophecies of the Book of Revelation.
