Do You Want To Know the End?

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!

  1. I’ve heard such good things about this author. I have Dissolution, but I don’t think it’s the first in the series? I need to give this author a try soon!


  2. Danielle, Dissolution is the first in the Shardlake series – then Dark Fire, then Sovereign. All great books.


  3. As you say ‘No surprises there’. I can’t wait to get this book . I love them. I think the author is interviewed in the latest Waterstone’s magazine . Next time I’m in town will get a copy.
