    15 thriller masters. 1 masterful thriller! Former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, within it's handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to the U.S. to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins.

    BSquared67 says: "A rollicking thriller"
    "a nice start but a disappointing ending"
    Overall

    I think the idea to have bunch of authors work together for a thriller is a good one. The trouble is, they have to work in a coordinated way. This novel starts very nicely, but a lot of the plots and figures that seem to be important at the very beginning were destroyed unexpected in the middle (e.g., the FBI agent) and the ending seems just too artificial.

    This riveting debut set in 1534 England secured C. J. Sansom’s place “among the most distinguished of modern historical novelists” (P. D. James). When Henry VIII’s emissary is beheaded at an English monastery, hunchbacked lawyer Matthew Shardlake is dispatched to solve the crime. But as he uncovers a cesspool of sin, three more murders occur - and Matthew may be the next target.

    What did you love best about Dissolution?

    The mixture of history and criminal investigation is superb. The writing is very vivid and one can almost smell and touch the life of medieval England. The main figures are not quite likable, but very real. The author is very skillful presenting a multi-layered, internally conflicting personality of the main characters.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The murder plot is actually quite simple, but the twists with the main characters personal feeling and changes of attitude are the main factors attract me from listening it.
