Review quote

"When historical fiction clicks, there''s nothing more gripping . . . and C.J. Sansom''s fantastic "Sovereign" left me positively baying for more. It''s that good. . . . Rebellion, plots, torture, fanaticism, a murder mystery and a real historical scandal come alive in this deeply satisfying novel." -Deirdre Donahue, "USA Today" "Authors of the caliber of P. D. James, Ruth Rendell, Ian Rankin, and Minette Walters remain rare. C. J. Sansom''s Sovereign . . . deserves as wide a readership as any of the above. . . . It''s deeper, stronger, and subtler than most novels in the genre." -"The Sunday Independent" (London)
