Description
It is the summer of 1545, and Tudor England is at war, in this fifth book of C.J. Sansom's superb, Historical Dagger Award–winning mystery series. Matthew Shardlake is asked to journey to Portsmouth to investigate claims of "monstrous wrongs" committed by Sir Nicholas Hobbey against Hugh Curteys, the young ward of an old friend. While there, Shardlake also intends to investigate the mysterious past of Ellen Fettiplace, a young woman incarcerated in Bedlam. In Portsmouth, Shardlake and his assistant Barak find themselves in a city readying for war, as the king's ships prepare to sail against the approaching French fleet. The mysteries surrounding the Hobbey family, and the events that destroyed Ellen's family 19 years before, reunite Shardlake with both an old friend and an old enemy close to the throne.

"At once compulsively readable and highly satisfying.... Sansom handles a large cast and a complex narrative with great skill and his set piece scenes—the sinking of the Mary Rose, for instance—are simply stupendous. An entirely engrossing novel with an intriguing twist."—Daily Express
