Descripción

This is a true UK first edition / first printing, numbered 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2 on the copyright page. It is the fourth book in the bestselling 'Shardlake' series ('Dissolution' being number one, 'Dark Fire' number two, 'Sovereign' number three and 'Heartstone' number five). The page edges could be a touch brighter. There is a tiny amount of shelfwear to the edges of the jacket. Otherwise, very nice. We protect all our books with a removable plastic cover, and send them with care. N° de ref. de la librería 001003

Sinopsis:

It is spring, 1543 and King Henry VIII is wooing Lady Catherine Parr, whom he wants for his sixth wife — but this time the object of his affections is resisting. Archbishop Cranmer and the embattled Protestant faction at court are watching keenly, for Lady Catherine is known to have reformist sympathies.

Matthew Shardlake, meanwhile, is working on the case of a teenage boy, a religious maniac who has been placed by the King's council in the Bedlam hospital for the insane. Should he be released as his parents want, when his terrifying actions could lead to him being burned as a heretic?

Then, when an old friend is horrifically murdered, Shardlake promises his widow — for whom he has long had complicated feelings — to bring the killer to justice. His search leads him to connections not only with the boy in Bedlam, but with Archbishop Cranmer and Catherine Parr, and with the dark prophecies of the Book of Revelation.

As London's Bishop Bonner prepares a purge of Protestants, Shardlake, together with his assistant Jack Barak and his friend Guy Malton, follow the trail of a series of horrific murders that shake them to the core. Murders which are already bringing about frenzied talk of witchcraft and a demonic possession, for what else would the Tudor mind make of a serial killer?
From the Hardcover edition.
