What the Critics Say

"Parris writes with confident ease of Tudor London… The dialogue balances nicely on a tightrope of period phrases and cut-to-the-chase colloquialisms. More, please." (Times)

"Impossible to resist … Parris creates a convincing sense of the past, woven with so much intrigue that the head fairly spins" (Daily Telegraph)

    "Superb narration"

    I love this period of history, first finding it in the faction of Shardlake. I must say that Laurence Kennedy does an absolutely superb job of giving the characters in the book a real presence. Well done.

    "Getting better as a series"

    After a slow start in the first book, this story is a lot better and the characters seem to be hitting their stride, I was doubtful whether to continue, but glad I did, if you weren't overly impressed with book one, this is better

    Story
    "Very twisty plot but not totally unpredictable"

    I really enjoyed all the characters and the plot twists, but I did guess one of the ultimate protagonists early on. Still worth a read though.
