Journal Entry 3 by wingDiane-Fraserwing at Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear United Kingdom on Monday, June 24, 2013

8 out of 10

Autumn 1541. King Henry VIII has set out on a spectacular Progress to the North to attend an extravagant submission by his rebellious subjects in York.

Already in the city are lawyer Matthew Shardlake and his assistant Jack Barak. As well as legal work processing local petetions to the King, Shardlake has reluctantly undertaken a special mission for Archbishop Cranmer - to ensure the welfare of an important but dangerous conspirator who is to be returned to London for interrogation.

But the murder of a York glazier involves Shardlake in deeper mysteries, connected not only to the prisoner in York Castle but to the royal family itself. And when Shardlake and Barak stumble upon a cache of secret documents which could threaten the Tudor throne a chain of events unfolds that will lead to Shardlake facing the most terrifying fate of the age...

" so compulsive that, until you reach its final page, you'll have to be almost physically prised away from it" - Sundy Times

Me- This is the third book in the Shardlake series that I have read, the size of it has put me off adding it to the top of Mount TBR a couple of times - 661 pages but it finally made it for the BC Olympic Marathon Challenge :)

I love the way all the factual historical events are entwined with the fiction in this book and have already got book four of the series waiting to be added nearer the top of my TBR!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Welcome to Bookcrossing!

You have found a travelling book. Why not join in the fun? Read, release and pass on but don't forget to write a Journal Entry telling us where you found the book, if you read it what you thought about it and where you are going to leave it. If you join bookcrossing before you do the entry you will get an alert when the next person writes up about it and can track its travels. If you prefer to just leave an Anonymous Journal Entry, it will brighten up my day either way. Oh and if you like the book sooooo much you just don't want to let it go that is fine too, maybe one day eh :)

Enjoy!!

Releasing for the BC Olympic game Marathon Event - 661 pages read. Release made with Gold coin - supposed to be a sovereign but for some reason Cars are No1 is imprinted on it! :))
