Wiosna 1543 roku. Król Henryk VIII zabiega o względy lady Katarzyny Parr, pragnąc, aby została jego szóstą żoną. Wybranka nie jest zachwycona tą propozycją. Arcybiskup Cranmer i zagrożone stronnictwo protestanckie na dworze uważnie obserwują obrót wydarzeń, bo lady Katarzyna jest znana z przychylności dla reformatorów.
W tym samym czasie Matthew Shardlake zajmuje się sprawą nastolatka, Adama Kite’a, religijnego maniaka, który na rozkaz Tajnej Rady został umieszczony w szpitalu dla obłąkanych w Bedlam. Gdyby został wypuszczony, jak chcieli rodzice, mógłby popełnić czyn, który zyskałby mu miano heretyka i doprowadził do spalenia na stosie.

5.0 Review: Revelation by CJ Sansom
With this installment in the Matthew Shardlake series, I think I can safely say that CJ Sansom has taken his place as my second favorite modern author (Sharon Kay Penman being my favorite). I have given this book some time to swirl around in my mind since I finished it, and I'm still not sure that I...

5.0 Revelation: A Matthew Shardlake Mystery

Meanwhile, the Bishop of London is busy persecut...

3.0 Serial Killer in the time of Henry VIII
Revelation has been, so far, the book I've liked the least in the series. In general I don't like serial killer plots - I think they are cop out because at the end you can pick almost anybody to be the killer and they always seem to be able to do crazy things without anybody catching them.
