    "This book as many customers to left positive reviews. I myself felt the book was really good. While reading I would often lose track of time. I highly recommend it to family and friends who enjoy mystery books."

    "This is the first book of a great series. If you love history or mystery, you will love this book. If you love them both, even better. This book transfers you to another time in history. The mystery will keep you on the edge of your chair. "

    "More of political history. Don't expect knights in radiant armor."

    "England under Henry VII and Cromwell was transitioning from Catholic to Protestant -- with the king as the head of the church as well as the country. This book treats all points of view fairly, but also without any rose colored glasses. It's as interesting to read for its portrayal of rich and poor, papist and reformer as it is for its plot."

    "This is a really interesting look at what could have happened during a murder investigation in 15th century England. I definitely appreciated the blurb about the history of that time period at the end. I'm not an Anglophile by any means, but I thoroughly enjoyed this read."

    "I love historical fictions and this one is no exception. I finished this series last week and I can wholeheartedly say it might be one of my favorites. I believe C.J. Sansom has accomplished something great here."

    "I haven't read a novel from this period before. At first I found it hard going, the language was strange to me and I didn't like Shardlake. The story--about an emissary from Thomas Cromwell/King Henry VIII being killed in a monastery--didn't capture me at first either. But I am glad to have read it, the change that Shardlake is slowly undergoing, the new perspective on the dissolution of monasteries and the worries of an uncertain time, are all very interesting themes. I just wish it had been about a hundred pages shorter and I think it could have been. I did like the twisty ending! "
