My, how things have changed not, sadly. Sansom drops you straight in it, stink and all. I love the Matthew Shardlake series, but I find I have to come up for 4. I love the Matthew Shardlake series, but I find I have to come up for air before diving into the next book.

I find I also have to forgive some glaring anachronisms in dialogue. The rest rings so true that it compensates for any lapses. It does mean I rounded down to 4 stars instead of up to 5, though. The peasants have to provide all the food, contribute to a stash of gold to be presented to the King, and put up with their fields being muddied and trashed by soldiers and others camping in them.

Shardlake and his young offsider, Jack Barak, are also on a mission for Archbishop Cranmer his former employer, Thomas Cromwell having been beheaded recently , who has given Shardlake his seal to assure him safe passage and entry into the city.

At York Castle, he reports to Master Radwinter and looks out the window of his office. The moat is surrounded by reeds, and Radwinter explains that they are being gathered to make rushlights. But who are the people standing in the water, picking at their legs? A rather forward, quite lovely, young woman cleverly contrives to meet them, as she seems to have her eye on Barak, and he is easily smitten. Tamasin becomes a major character in this story, as do the women she works for who report to the Queen.

The divide between wealth and poverty was like the divide between humans and livestock. Farmers and peasants were on the land at the pleasure of the landowners — the nobles. As I mentioned before, in some places, things are still just as bad. Yes, bones hanging from a loft where a man had died slowly, in chains, and finally been picked clean, while various body parts of other miscreants or just someone who was out of favour at the wrong time decorate bridges and pikes and fences everywhere.

Keep him alive long enough to be tortured. Not what he had in mind for a career but he needs the money. Where was I? Shardlake is always noticeably avoided because of his hunched back, but Jack Barak can move in and out of pubs and chat to the locals. It was foolish, I that had once had Thomas Cromwell for a friend and confronted Richard Rich and the Duke of Norfolk, reduced to such a jelly.

Yet this was not an official or nobleman I was approaching now. In those few seconds I believed it all. A cult devised to excuse divorce, and eventually excused everything. Do not forget he is chosen by God, appointed by Him to guide England into the paths of wisdom and truth. I love and recommend this series.
