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.

How is that relevant to this particular book? Oh..it isn't, you should post this somewhere relevant to get the answers you want.

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.

Don't forget the Cadfael series.

Check out Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle starting with Quicksilver (there's 3 books in all). I'm reading them the second time around and enjoying them all over again - I really rate this guy!!!

Edith Pargeter(aka Ellis Peters) does nice one on The Brothers of Gwynnedd Quartet, and I'm fond of Iain Pears's
An Instance of the Fingerpost - gripping even second time round!

Can't believe it over 3 years since I mentioned Bernard Knight (above ! ) Those lovely People who sell Books have a set of his Crowner John series.
