5.0 out of 5 stars
A great read, 18 May 2010
Great read, entertaining, fast paced and gripping. Having read all Shardlake books i cant wait for Number 5 coming later this year. Sansom must have done a lot of research, London of Henry XIII times is described in detail. One doesnt appreciate fully today what people went through when he abolished the catholic church and how he achieved this. The characters are developed fast and i felt immersed in a time long gone. If you like historical thrillers with lot of facts and historical figures in it this whole series is a wonderful read!
