Summer, 1546. King Henry VIII is slowly, painfully dying. His Protestant and Catholic councillors are engaged in a final and decisive power struggle; whoever wins will control the government of Henry's successor, eight-year-old Prince Edward. As heretics are hunted across London, and the radical Protestant Anne Askew is burned at the stake, the Catholic party focus their attack on Henry's sixth wife, Matthew Shardlake's old mentor, Queen Catherine Parr. Shardlake, still haunted by events aboard the warship Mary Rose the year before, is working on the Cotterstoke Will case, a savage dispute between rival siblings. Then, unexpectedly, he is summoned to Whitehall Palace and asked for help by his old patron, the now beleaguered and desperate Queen. For Catherine Parr has a secret. She has written a confessional book, Lamentation of a Sinner, so radically Protestant that if it came to the King's attention it could bring both her and her sympathizers crashing down. But, although the book was kept secret and hidden inside a locked chest in the Queen's private chamber, it has - inexplicably - vanished. Only one page has been found, clutched in the hand of a murdered London printer. Shardlake's investigations take him on a trail that begins among the backstreet printshops of London but leads him and Jack Barak into the dark and labyrinthine world of the politics of the royal court; a world he had sworn never to enter again. Loyalty to the Queen will drive him into a swirl of intrigue inside Whitehall Palace, where Catholic enemies and Protestant friends can be equally dangerous, and the political opportunists, who will follow the wind wherever it blows, more dangerous than either. The theft of Queen Catherine's book proves to be connected to the terrible death of Anne Askew, while his involvement with the Cotterstoke litigants threatens to bring Shardlake himself to the stake.… (més)

Another great book in the Matthew Shardlake mystery series. These are excellent stories, full of intrigue and are historically accurate. I look forward to the next one.

Probably the most tense and gripping of the series so far. I had huge difficulty in letting it go; I cared about Matthew and his 'team' so much. At one point I heard myself say 'oh no' out loud. The Tudor world and the people that occupied it are brought so vividly to life. Wonderful stuff. Can't wait for the next one. ( )

These go from strength to strength, although I think Shardlake is more unlucky than most in his choice of steward. There were quite a few fight scenes in this one - however benign Shardlake's case initially appears, it inevitably becomes perilous - all of which ended disastrously. This series is fascinating in its depiction of the way religion and politics and daily life were so intertwined. ( )

I have stepped away from C.J. Sansom's Matthew Shardlake series for a while. Now is the time to return. I absolutely love this series. Hate finishing a book and leaving the magnificent characters behind. ( )

Although I love murder mysteries and often enjoy historical fiction, I have little interest in the Tudor struggles with religious doctrine. This book spends more time on political intrigues than on a crime investigation. I found myself frustrated not only with the story but also the detective, whose one sided fascination with his Queen (I could not see the attraction) prompts him to put himself and other people at risk while being unable to see that he is being used.

In the course of reading this book, I found myself rolling my eyes often, at: people who go to war about religion even though they believe in the same god; their bone of contention (transubstantiation) sounding like either voodoo magic or cannibalism; and the purported villains of the story, the Anabaptists, who actually seem pretty cool, like peaceful egalitarian anarchists with a mindful approach to religion. Recommended for readers with an interest in British history and/or Christian history. ( )

"The rich period details burnish Sansom’s status as one of today’s top historical writers."
afegit per bookfitz | editaPublishers Weekly (Dec 15, 2014)
 
"Shakespearean characterization and Byzantine plotting: Amid all the stink and muck of Tudor London, Sansom offers a master class in royal intrigue."
afegit per bookfitz | editaKirkus Reviews (Dec 15, 2014)
 
"Lamentation, like its predecessors, is a triumph both as detective fiction and as a novel, and its 615 pages never drag."
afegit per bookfitz | editaThe Independent, Amanda Craig (Nov 8, 2014)
 
"There is little doubt that the popularity of the Shardlake series is partly due to the fact that the books fulfil the morbid function of Horrible Histories for grownups. Yet Sansom, who trained both as a historian and a solicitor, is no mere blood-and-guts entertainer."
afegit per bookfitz | editaThe Guardian, Alfred Hickling (Oct 29, 2014)

As heretics are hunted across London, and the radical Protestant Anne Askew is burned at the stake, the Catholic party focus their attack on Henry's sixth wife, Matthew Shardlake's old mentor, Queen Catherine Parr. Shardlake, still haunted by events aboard the warship Mary Rose the year before, is working on the Cotterstoke Will case, a savage dispute between rival siblings. Then, unexpectedly, he is summoned to Whitehall Palace and asked for help by his old patron, the now beleaguered and desperate Queen. For Catherine Parr has a secret. She has written a confessional book, Lamentation of a Sinner, so radically Protestant that if it came to the King's attention it could bring both her and her sympathizers crashing down. But, although the book was kept secret and hidden inside a locked chest in the Queen's private chamber, it has - inexplicably - vanished.
