I enjoyed the book from a historical fiction point of view because it looked at religious events under Henry VIII from a new angle, the common man rat..Show More »her than palace. The information about the Tindale bible was fascination. The story concerns an actual unsolved crime from 1536. Unfortunately, the main character is flat and a bit thick. He sees violence all around him yet is confused when his actions set off reactions. He seems so naive at times. The book is missing the drama and intensity of the Matthew Shardlake books by C.J. Sansom.
The narrator does an excellent job. I would listen to other books narrated by David Thorpe.
