5.0 out of 5 stars Matthew Shardlake Rides Again!, 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heartstone (Matthew Shardlake 5) (Paperback)
I'm addicted to C J Sansom's 'Shardlake' novels and Heartstone, the fifth book, is equally as brilliant as the previous four. If you have a love of history and enjoy a good crime novel, then you won't be disappointed. Heartstone takes the reader back to 1545, when Henry VIII was married to Catherine Parr. As with all the Shardlake novels, there is always a link between the heart of the tale and those close to the King (much intrigue!). The story takes us from London to Portsmouth and contains a lot of detail relating to the Battle of the Solent, when the Mary Rose sank. Once again, I was transported back to 16th century England; Sansom recreates so well the essence of English life 500 years ago. Although this is a stand-alone novel, I would advise reading them in order, because you really feel you're building a relationship with the hero as you move through the novels. Difficult to put down, yet didn't want to reach the end!
