The nominal king, Edward VI, is 11 years old. His uncle, Edward Seymour, Lord Hertford, rules as Edward's regent and Protector. In the kingdom, radical Protestants are driving the old religion into extinction, while the Protector's prolonged war with Scotland has led to hyperinflation and economic collapse. Rebellion is stirring among the peasantry. Matthew Shardlake has been working as a lawyer in the service of Henry's younger daughter, the lady Elizabeth.

Loved all prior Matthew Shardlake mysteries, this one is still good but there is WAY too much bad language, not sure why authors think they have to add so much of this, seriously considering stopping where I am and returning this book. GIVE ME THE STORY WITHOUT ALL THE CURSING! I do not say these words and do not like hearing them!

After an overhaul of leadership at the FBI's New York field office, A. X. L. Pendergast is abruptly forced to accept an unthinkable condition of continued employment: the famously rogue agent must now work with a partner. Pendergast and his new teammate, junior agent Coldmoon, are assigned to Miami Beach, where a rash of killings by a bloodthirsty psychopath are distinguished by a confounding M.O.: cutting out the hearts of his victims and leaving them - along with cryptic handwritten letters - at local gravestones, unconnected save in one bizarre way.

I LOVE Mrs. Pollifax! Read them all years ago and am thrilled to see them on Audible. Please add the whole series, and all the rest of Dorothy Gilman's books!
