Heartstone, the latest in the C.J. Sansom Shardlake, Tudor England mysteries carries forward the authors great images and twists and turns of the reign of Henry VIII and the characters developed that are always tangential to the Throne, the Queen and the Court.
Heartstone is no exception and those of you who were introduced to this series by my earlier blog ( April 2, 2011) will not be disappointed. Sovereign, and Revelation are also excellent reads but my choice from among the series remains Dissolution.
From a historical point of view, Heartstone is set against a background of Henry VIII embarking on yet another war with France. Yes, there is the usual Sansom twist in the plot that I doubt you will guess until the very end.
