Dissolution (Audio CD) ... 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. Matthew Shardlake, lawyer and long-time supporter of Reform, has been sent by Cromwell into this atmosphere of treachery and death.

Having read a few reviews about several books in C J Sansom's historical mystery series featuring Matthew Shardlake, I've had these books on my 'to be read' list for quite some time and whilst mooching through the audio books at the library recently, I came across the first of the series, Dissolution, and decided I'd borrow it and listen to it as my walk-to-work entertainment. Although I can't profess to being a great fan of the Tudors (a bunch of monsters sprung from a usurper with a very tenuous claim to the throne, if you ask me) there's no denying that the reign of Henry VIII was a difficult and dangerous period of political and religious turmoil that ...
