Professional reviews

"Narrator Steven Crossley delivers a compelling performance in this fourth mystery featuring lawyer and detective Matthew Shardlake. Despite his own doubts, listeners find him once again pursuing justice for those in trouble amid the religious upheaval of Henry VIII's reign. When Shardlake is asked by the woman he once hoped to marry to investigate the death of her husband, Crossley subtly conveys the romantic feelings the lawyer still has for her. As the dead multiply, Crossley builds the tension, narrowing listeners' focus to the perils that threaten the hero when not only is there a murderer on the loose but the government may decide to accuse him of heresy at the slightest provocation.
