I’™m reading C J Sansom’™s book Revelation. Don’™t worry there are no spoilers here!
This is the fourth in the Matthew Shardlake series and he’™s working on the case of a teenage boy held in the Bedlam Hospital for the insane (or is he possessed?) and also investigating a series of brutal murders. The murderer is using a chapter in the Book of Revelation as the pattern for the killings.
There’™s a lot more to say about this book, which will have to wait for a later post. I’™m about half way through the book and am wondering just who is the murderer ‘“ I’™m picking up clues, but are they red herrings? I’™m always tempted to turn to the end of the book and see who done it, but I don’™t want to.
But this morning I couldn’™t resist just a little peek. So just opening the book enough to see just a few words on the last page I read part of the last sentence ‘“ with my hand over the rest of the page ‘“
‘œOut there in a chapel in a palace, the King had finally married Catherine Parr.’
So no surprises there then!
