Publisher's Summary

A gripping BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation based on the second novel in C. J. Sansom's best-selling Tudor crime series.

Summer, 1540. It has been three years since the terrible events at Scarnsea monastery, and lawyer-detective Matthew Shardlake is living a quiet life in London - until a summons from Cromwell sees him embarking on another dangerous secret assignment.

Someone has stolen the last barrel of 'Greek Fire': a legendary, highly potent incendiary weapon thought lost since the fall of Constantinople. Shardlake is tasked with tracking it down - and he must move quickly, for Cromwell is out of favour with the King and is relying on the precious substance to save his skin.

But Shardlake has another, equally urgent case to deal with - defending an orphan girl, Elizabeth Wentworth, who is accused of murdering her young cousin. Aided by Cromwell's man, Barak, Shardlake must race against time to solve both cases, for the fates of both Cromwell and Elizabeth depend on him....

Winner of the 2005 CWA Ellis Peters Historical Dagger Award, Dark Fire is the second thrilling instalment in the 'Shardlake' series. This atmospheric crime drama, starring Justin Salinger as Shardlake, Bryan Dick as Barak and Robert Glenister as Thomas Cromwell, features deception, dark secrets, captivating characters and a vibrant historical setting. Duration: 2 hours 30 mins approx.

    "Good Adaptation."

    A very good BBC adaptation of Dark Fire it kept to the story & didn't omit anything that would detract from the mystery. I love the Shardlake books & this was a very good adaptation.

    "LOVE THIS ❤️"

    I just love these Shardlake full cast productions and have them all. These are thrilling atmospheric and full of Tudor life it is as if we are taken back in time to the horrifying times of King Henry 8th’s dark days of treachery, treason, murder & religious mania. Dark & dangerous times. I think myself lucky not to be born in that era.

    Justin Salinger & Brian Dick work well together bringing the characters Shardlake & Barack to life. These are well produced and well directed radio shows which I hope there will be many more. These shows are why I am a member of Audible.uk & have been for 6 years. Great audible books as well as full casts plays at fantastic prices. LOVE THIS ❤️
