The 1st instalment in the wildly popular Matthew Shardlake mystery series, now available from Vintage Canada.
 
It is 1537, a time of revolution that sees the greatest changes in England since 1066. Henry VIII has proclaimed himself Supreme Head of the Church. The country is waking up to savage new laws, rigged trials and the greatest network of informers it has ever seen. And under the orders of Thomas Cromwell, a team of commissioners is sent throughout the country to investigate the monasteries. There can only be one outcome: dissolution. But on the Sussex coast, at the monastery of Scarnsea, events have spiralled out of control. Cromwell's commissioner, Robin Singleton, has been found dead, his head severed from his body. His horrific murder is accompanied by equally sinister acts of sacrilege. Matthew Shardlake, lawyer and long-time supporter of Reform, has been sent by Cromwell to uncover the truth behind the dark happenings at Scarnsea. But investigation soon forces Shardlake to question everything that he hears, and everything that he intrinsically believes...

About the Author:

C. J. SANSOM was educated at Birmingham University, where he took a BA and then a PhD in history. After working in a variety of jobs, he retrained as a solicitor and practised in Sussex, until becoming a full-time writer.

From AudioFile:

In 1537, England, led by Henry VIII, began its fierce crusade against the Catholic Church, establishing instead the Church of England. Thomas Cromwell led this crusade by way of a severe crackdown on any loyalists of the old church through informants and loyalists. Simon Jones is superb in this account of Tudor England and spans the breadth of characters with smooth transitions. His rapport with the main character, Matthew Shardlake, is immediately clear. As a result, the story unfolds easily, making accessible the formality of Old World English speech. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
