Dissolution by C.J.Sansom

untitledDissolution by C. J.Sansom. Recommended by Fiona (Reader Development Team and Whitefield Library.)

Henry VIII has ordered the dissolution of the monasteries and England is full of informers. At the monastery of Scarnsea events have spiralled out of control with the murder of Commissioner Robin Singleton. Matthew Shardlake, a lawyer, and his assistant are sent to investigate

‘Fans of “Wolf Hall” will be fascinated to encounter a different angle on Thomas Cromwell, as he sends out his Commissioners to dissolve the ancient monasteries of England in 1537. Matthew Shardlake, however, is sent by Cromwell on a slightly different mission, to solve the murder of one of these men, killed in a monastery while carrying out his duty. A brilliant murder mystery which will keep you guessing until the end, and which leaves Shardlake wondering where his loyalties should really lie.’ Fiona
