Product description

Review

Tudor England of 1549 is effortlessly evoked. The murder mystery absorbs, the characters are vivid and the history is seductive, but it's the author's inclusive humanity that lingers (Elizabeth Buchan Daily Mail)

Tudor terror tingles through C. J. Sansom's murder mystery novels . . . With remarkable expertise, sustained over more than 850 pages, Sansom weaves together a wide cast of characters and knits his murder story into a vivid tapestry of little-known historical happenings (Peter Kemp Sunday Times)

Sansom handles his huge cast with aplomb. This is a totally immersive and vividly written tale: compelling reading for history lovers and crime aficionados alike (Laura Wilson Guardian)

Sansom has the trick of writing an enthralling narrative. Like Hilary Mantel, he produces densely textured historical novels that absorb their readers in another time (Andrew Taylor Spectator)

Sansom blends impeccable historical research with a bloody good whodunnit (The Times)

Sansom has the rare knack of bringing the past to life in three dimensions . . . The honest Shardlake shines like a beacon (Daily Telegraph)

Tudor England has never seemed so vibrantly alive and viscerally authentic than in the pages of the extraordinary Matthew Shardlake novels and after a four-year wait, C.J. Sansom’s mild-mannered, middle-aged, hunchback lawyer makes a magnificent return. (Lancashire Evening Post)

Shardlake is a superb creation who gains more substance with each new book . . . A grand historical epic . . . 800 pages in Shardlake's company will always fly by (Stephanie Merritt Observer)

I really don’t think crime writing comes much better than this, and as always with Sansom there is a wealth of enjoyment in his rich storytelling . . . This novel may have been four years in the making but it was well worth the wait. (Nudge)

Few writers can keep readers interested over the length of 866 pages, but C. J. Sansom is one of those . . . Built on substantial research and written with such confidence that the prose is both smooth and colourful, Tombland is a superb achievement (Literary Review)

Book Description

With the country in crisis, Shardlake heads to Norwich in the seventh novel in C. J. Sansom's bestselling historical crime series.
