Dissolution – C.J. Sansom

As a new season the The Tudors begins, I am reminded of my love of the Shardlake series of historical mysteries by C.J. Sansom. Set in the time of Henry VIII, they revolve around the life of lawyer Matthew Shardlake whose work keeps him in the periphery of the Court. In this first book, he is hired by Thomas Cromwell to facilitate the removal of stubborn monks refusing to leave their monastery. There are four other titles in this series. These are big books, well- researched with complex plots & well-drawn characters that put you right in the dirt, smells, and the political intrigue of 16th century London. (submitted by LL)
