    Review quote
    "This second volume in Hilary Mantel's planned trilogy about Thomas Cromwell, right-hand man to Henry VIII of England, is a perfect marriage of the written and spoken word...Simon Vance's silken tones and expert pacing keep us engaged throughout...Vance enhances the story with instructive vocal portraits of key players and a listenable tempo that keeps us clear and entranced until the end." - "AudioFile "Magazine, winner of an "AudioFile "Earphones Award Can one improve Hilary Mantel's tale of Tudor intrigue, Bring Up the Bodies, which has racked up both sales and awards?

Mantel's language is extraordinary - it's as though she's channeled Cromwell from beyond and burrowed into his mind - and Simon Vance's impeccable reading is a perfect match. A wonderful way to celebrate audio month." - BookPage "Narrator Simon Vance's skillful presentation enhances Mantel's outstanding description and dialogue. His gorgeous sound, tone and accent add to the beauty and horror of the compellin
