As Henry VIII lies on his deathbed, an incendiary manuscript threatens to tear his court apart. Summer, 1546. King Henry VIII is slowly, painfully dying. His Protestant and Catholic councilors are engaged in a final and decisive power struggle; whoever wins will control the government. As heretics are hunted across London, and radical Protestants are burned at the stake, the Catholic party focuses its attack on Henry's sixth wife--and Matthew Shardlake's old mentor--Queen Catherine Parr. Shardlake, still haunted by his narrow escape from death the year before, steps into action when the beleaguered and desperate Queen summons him to Whitehall Palace to help her recover a dangerous manuscript. The Queen has authored a confessional book, Lamentation of a Sinner, so radically Protestant that if it came to the King's attention it could bring both her and her sympathizers crashing down. Although the secret book was kept hidden inside a locked chest in the Queen's private chamber, it has inexplicably vanished. Only one page has been recovered--clutched in the hand of a murdered London printer. Shardlake's investigations take him on a trail that begins among the backstreet printshops of London, but leads him and his trusty assistant Jack Barak into the dark and labyrinthine world of court politics, a world Shardlake swore never to enter again. In this crucible of power and ambition, Protestant friends can be as dangerous as Catholic enemies, and those with shifting allegiances can be the most dangerous of all.

One of the great overlooked historical detective series continues with this mystery for fans of Hilary Mantel, set in a time of great political upheaval in Tudor-era England. Spring, 1549. Two years after the death of Henry VIII, England is sliding into chaos. The nominal king, Edward VI, is eleven years old. His uncle, Edward Seymour, Lord Hertford, rules as Edward's regent and Protector. In the kingdom, radical Protestants are driving the old religion into extinction, while the Protector's prolonged war with Scotland has led to hyperinflation and economic collapse. Rebellion is stirring among the peasantry. Matthew Shardlake has been working as a lawyer in the service of Henry's younger daughter, the lady Elizabeth. The gruesome murder of one of Elizabeth's distant relations, rumored to be politically murdered, draws Shardlake and his companion Nicholas to the lady's summer estate, where a second murder is committed. As the kingdom explodes into rebellion, Nicholas is imprisoned for his loyalty, and Shardlake must decide where his loyalties lie--with his kingdom, or with his lady?

Número 1 en Reino Unido durante más de ocho semanas. Una novela de intriga en la corte de los Tudor. Verano de 1546. El rey Enrique VIII agoniza lenta y dolorosamente. Sus consejeros, católicos y protestantes, se enzarzan en una lucha por el poder; quien gane, logrará el control del gobierno. Mientras se persigue a los herejes por todo Londres y los protestantes radicales acaban en la hoguera, el grupo católico centra sus ataques en la sexta esposa de Enrique, la reina Catalina Parr. Shardlake entra en acción cuando la acosada y desesperada monarca lo llama a su presencia en el Palacio de Whitehall para que la ayude a recuperar un peligroso manuscrito. La reina ha escrito un libro confesional, Lamentación de una pecadora, tan radicalmente protestante que, de llegar a oídos del rey, podría suponer su caída y la de sus simpatizantes. A pesar de hallarse escondido en un cofre cerrado en los aposentos privados de Catalina, el libro ha desaparecido inexplicablemente. Sólo se ha recuperado una hoja: la que aferraba la mano de un impresor de Londres asesinado. Las investigaciones de Shardlake lo llevan a seguir un rastro que se inicia en las imprentas clandestinas de Londres, pero acaba introduciéndolo, a él y a su fiel ayudante Jack Barak, en el sombrío y laberíntico mundo de la política palaciega. En este crisol de poder y ambición, los amigos protestantes pueden resultar tan amenazadores como los enemigos católicos, y quienes cambian de bando a menudo son los más peligrosos de todos. Reseñas: «Una serie extraordinariamente entretenida. La Historia nunca había parecido tan real.» The New York Times Book Review «Esta novela es la confirmación del talento de Sansom a la hora de combinar una absorbente trama de misterio con un héroe encantador, todo ello respaldado por el profundo conocimiento del período que trata.» The Observer «Apasionante… Sansom se ha convertido en uno de los mejores escritores del momento.» The Spectator «Una clase magistral de intrigas reales.» Kirkus Reviews «Todo funciona a la perfección en cada nueva novela de Sansom protagonizada por Matthew Shardlake.» Publishers Weekly «Esta serie de novelas supone un excelente ejemplo de una imaginación inteligente al servicio de la historia.» The Wall Street Journal «Leí el libro en un fin de semana y solo interrumpí la lectura para dormir. Una lectura imprescindible.» The Globe and Mail
