"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)

"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.
"Great Tudor who-dun-it"
A very involving 'listen' with lots of enjoyably accurate historical detail. Nicely read, in a way which grows on you!
