Summary

Summary

This riveting debut set in 1534 England secured C. J. Sansom's place "among the most distinguished of modern historical novelists" (P. D. James). When Henry VIII's emissary is beheaded at an English monastery, hunchbacked lawyer Matthew Shardlake is dispatched to solve the crime. But as he uncovers a cesspool of sin, three more murders occur-and Matthew may be the next target.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A remarkable debut.” P. D. James, New York Times bestselling author
“This is a humdinger of a whodunnit. Read it!” Colin Dexter
“Sansom seems to have been born with, or instinctively acquired, that precious balance of creativity and research that lets a mystery set in another time walk a delicate line between history and humanity.” Chicago Tribune
“Sansom does a remarkably fine job of bringing the period and its larger-than-life characters (many real, some, like Shardlake, imagined) to life.” NPR
“A compelling historical mystery...Readers who want something a step up in complexity from Ellis Peters’ Cadfael series will find this satisfying fare.” Publishers Weekly
“Sansom’s first novel will not disappoint fans of historical fiction.” Booklist
