's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction

One of those book series you wish would never end. I like books that give time for the characters to develop and aren't full of explosions and scooting around at warp speed. The Shardlake series is everything I love - history, a long story that doesn't end too soon for a fast reader, well rounded characters you get to know well when the story moves peacefully forward, and an underlying theme that carries through all the books in the series. Here, again the plot was excellent. I began to have a hunch who was behind the disappearance of the queen's book, but the story was again so well told that I thought I had to be wrong - until the end almost. Such a good story, much recommended (and you can read it even if you haven't read the previous volumes in the series).

Marie Nice review, Leena! It's such a well-written series, unlike so much of the dreck that purports to be literature these days. Definitely not intended for the "lowest common denominator" reader! Here's to Matthew Shardlake, long may he detect!
