9780330450799: Dissolution

Matthew Shardlake, a keenly intelligent hunchback lawyer, is in the service of Lord Thomas Cromwell, an ambitious advisor to King Henry VIII. Shardlake, and many like him, sought to create a world in which faith and charity would be enough to settle differences. But following England's break with the Roman Catholic Church, Cromwell is charged with suppressing the country's monasteries and confiscating their land. By the winter of 1537, his actions have led to rebellion and executions. The disembodied heads of accused traitors line the spikes on London Bridge was a warning to others.

Harsh new laws, rigged trials, networks of informers, and Queen Anne Boleyn herself executed on questionable charges—the scene is set for reform and for Cromwell supporter Matthew Shardlake to enter a hellish cauldron of personal, social, and political upheaval. As Shardlake starts to doubt Cromwell's methods for achieving reform, he is sent to investigate a monastery murder that only serves to fuel his suspicions, even as his own loyalty comes under the microscope.

About the Author:

CHRISTOPHER (C. J.) SANSOM earned a Ph.D. in history and was a lawyer for the disadvantaged before becoming a full-time writer. He lives in London.

Originally from Wiltshire, England, award-winning narrator SIMON JONES is perhaps most often recognized as ‘Arthur Dent’ in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (both radio and TV versions) or as ‘Bridey’ in the classic TV mini-series “Brideshead Revisited”.

He has been seen in such films as Privates in Parade, Brazil, 12 Monkeys, Miracle on 34th Street (remake), and Devil’s Own; most recently on TV as a judge in OZ and as ‘C.S. Lewis’ in PBS’s A Question of God; and regularly on stage, including 10 major roles on Broadway. In 2004 his audio book narrations won him AudioFile magazine's "Golden Voice" award, and Publisher’s Weekly "Narrator of the Year."

From AudioFile:

In 1537, England, led by Henry VIII, began its fierce crusade against the Catholic Church, establishing instead the Church of England. Thomas Cromwell led this crusade by way of a severe crackdown on any loyalists of the old church through informants and loyalists. Simon Jones is superb in this account of Tudor England and spans the breadth of characters with smooth transitions. His rapport with the main character, Matthew Shardlake, is immediately clear. As a result, the story unfolds easily, making accessible the formality of Old World English speech. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Descrizione libro Pan Macmillan. Paperback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Dissolution (Tenth anniversary ed), C. J. Sansom, Henry VIII has proclaimed himself Supreme Head of the Church and the country is waking up to savage new laws, rigged trials and the greatest network of informers ever seen. Under the order of Thomas Cromwell, a team of commissioners is sent through the country to investigate the monasteries. There can only be one outcome: the monasteries are to be dissolved. But on the Sussex coast, at the monastery of Scarnsea, events have spiralled out of control. Cromwell's Commissioner Robin Singleton, has been found dead, his head severed from his body. His horrific murder is accompanied by equally sinister acts of sacrilege - a black cockerel sacrificed on the alter, and the disappearance of Scarnsea's Great Relic. Dr Matthew Shardlake, lawyer and long-time supporter of Reform, has been sent by Cromwell into this atmosphere of treachery and death. But Shardlake's investigation soon forces him to question everything he hears, and everything that he intrinsically believes . Codice libro della libreria B9780330450799
