Great entertainment!

I heard about these books after hearing an interview with the author on the BBC. I thought the books would be interesting, but didn't anticipate lying in bed until 2 am still plugged in to my iPod, because I couldn't wait to hear what happened next. The story abounds with wonderful characters, excellent twists of plot and a well-researched ambiance. I'm looking forward to listening to the entire Matthew Shardlake series.

What a ride!

Okay, it moves a bit slow at times but this book packs plenty of tension and mystery. I was able to figure some things out before Master Shardlake yet that did not dim my enjoyment one whit! The time covered was one of religious strife in England. I came away with a new appreciation of what an intelligent person in England must have gone through during those time. I also came away with a real sense of just how EVIL Henry VIII was.
This man brought terror to a land that had been fairly content.
