Wow - what a story! Warning - do not read reviews of this book if you don't want to ruin the anticipation and suspense created by not knowing exactly what this story is about. Suffice it to say that this installment in the Matthew Shardlake series was a bit of a surprise and departure from the others but I loved it! I spent 3 nights up until after 1 AM following this sharp thriller as it twisted and turned through several plot lines while trying to figure out which character was the bad guy and how this story would all end! What I will give away is that this tale is a bit gruesome and not for the feint of heart BUT if you like historical fiction and true crime stories you will find this completely enthralling.
I cannot wait to see how C.J. Sansom follows this one!!
