Can anyone suggest any author's that are comparable in detail and accuracy to that of C J Sansom's Shardlake series? Of course they need to be a fantastic read also. Any suggestions would be greatly received.
The Great Stink by Clare Clark. Set a bit later on - in Victorian England during and after Crimean war. But a real gripping thriller just like C J Sansom. Feels like a really cool history lesson at the same time
May I suggest Bernard Knight's Crowner John series - read them in sequence, though. A series of well written mysteries against an impressive knowledge of 12th Century England coming to terms with Norman Law.
