This long awaited 7th novel in the Matthew Shardlake series is based around 1549 Kett s Rebellion and a mystery murder which Matthew is asked by the Lady Elizabeth to investigate As the Author himself admits the Rebellion is not as famous as the Peasants Revolt of 1381 We are presented with the reasons behind the rebellion we meet some historic figures and we get to know how the rebellion progressed Incredibly interesting I discovered CJ Sansom many years ago and read all his books as they were published so I ve followed Shardlake for 15 years now it might seem that the same pattern applied in the series would prove boring at some point which is often the case but far from that I thoroughly enjoy learning about history and solving mysteries with Matthew And I hope there will be CJ Sansom gives us historical fiction which is both entertaining and educational
