This is my first week in The Sunday Salon. The book that I have been reading today is 'Revelation' by C.J.Sansom. This author has penned a few books about Tudor England in particular the time of Henry V111 's reign.
This novel's main character is Matthew Shardlake, a lawyer.He is asked to help release a young boy from a mental institution, Bedlam. On his way around the capital he sees the body of a close friend brutally murdered, in trying to solve this crime another is discovered . Politics and royalty play a part in the narrative. Courtiers, lawyers and the poor working man are all drawn into the plot.
I'm only 100 pages into the book (there are 500+) and I'm completely hooked, it's wonderful. You can just about smell Tudor London(not very pleasant at times).
I know I'm going to enjoy the rest of this book.
