Matthew Shardlake faces a dilemma over his loyalties in CJ Sansom’s magisterial novel, which places the well-connected lawyer at the heart of the peasants’ rebellion of 1549 in East Anglia. While under siege and suspicion from rebels, Shardlake and his fellow investigators attempt to solve the shocking murder of a woman who had supposedly disappeared several years earlier.
