    C. J. Sansom's whole Shardlake Tudor mystery series is terrific. I have enjoyed every one of the books, beginning with Dissolution. The blend of mystery and intrigue with historic detail is just right. Sansom's primary character, Shardlake, is realistic and fun to read about sort of a medieval Columbo, who always figures

    This is the 3rd. Sansom book I've read and the 3rd in the series of The Shardlake Mysteries. I have enjoyed all 3 and I think this one was my favorite. Each book takes the reader through some important event in the Tudor period of English history as the backdrop to a murder "who done it?" The mystery is always good and surprising

    Sovereign brings the reader into the unpredictability of an absolute monarch whose hold on sanity is slipping. Sansom has the feel and rhythm of the sixteenth century down to the smallest detail, and not just the big names. He gets the common people better than almost anybody else. Their problems and joys drive his plots, which are

    I have to agree with the one and two star reviewers as to the flaws in this book but I'll give it a 3 or maybe 3+ because I did find it good enough to go ahead and finish. I'd say the middle 60 70% of the book is boring and repetitious with the same things happening over and over: the hero walking around York, in and out of buidings

    So I’ve finished another Shardlake mystery. Most of it was good. Kept me guessing to the end. My only complaint is I think the book could of been shorter. The journey back to London while essential to plot, got a little tedious in some places. I don’t like it when authors take forever to get to point. Still it was a good mystery for the most part. I plan to keep reading of Shardlake mysteries.

    My third Shardlake read and, whilst I've enjoyed them all, this is my least favourite. For two reasons: one, now I'm in the the groove of how these stories pan out I'd worked out the real culprit by half way through; two, for some strange reason Ransom feels the need to give the York characters broad accents this results in phonetic spelling of the dialect. I don't have a problem with this if it's consistent w

    This is the third Matthew Shardlake novel, following on from Dissolution and Dark Fire. Shardlake is now a much established character, with Jack Barak as his foil and sidekick, and this is a much assured novel (which, considering how excellent the first two books are is very impressive). It is 1541 and, after the fall of Cromwell, S
