Product description

"We can't recommend this book too highly; it's another virtuoso performance from a truly great talent." -"The Denver Post" Readers across America are discovering C. J. Sansom's marvelous Shardlake novels. Now, with the brilliant fourth installment in the series, "Revelation" is poised to bring his highly praised historical thrillers to an even wider audience. In 1543, while Tudor England is abuzz with King Henry VIII's wooing of Lady Catherine Parr, Matthew Shardlake is working to defend a teenage boy, a religious fanatic being held in the infamous Bedlam hospital for the insane. Then, when an old friend is murdered, Shardlake's search for the killer leads him back not only to Bedlam but also to Catherine Parr-and the dark prophecies of the Book of Revelation.

Review quote

Praise for the Matthew Shardlake series: "Remarkable. . . . The sights, the voices, the very smell of this turbulent age seem to rise from the page."--"P.D. James ""Terrific . . . a remarkable, imaginative feat. It is a first-rate murder mystery and one of the most atmospheric historical novels I've read in years."--"The Mail on Sunday ""Historical crime fiction is sometimes little more than a modern adventure in fancy dress. Not so the novels of C. J. Sansom, whose magnificent books set in the reign of Henry VIII bring to life the sounds and smells of Tudor England . . . Dark Fire" "is a creation of real brilliance."--"The Sunday Times "(UK)
