Dissolution Dissolution is the first in the phenomenal Shardlake series by bestselling author, C. J. Sansom. The bestselling Dissolution is followed by Dark Fire, Sovereign, Revelation, Heartstone and Lamentation.

It is 1537, a time of revolution that sees the greatest changes in England since 1066. Henry VIII has proclaimed himself Supreme Head of the Church. The country is waking up to savage new laws, rigged trials and the greatest network of informers ever seen. And under the orders of Thomas Cromwell, a team of commissioners is sent throughout the country to investigate the monasteries. There can only be one outcome: dissolution.

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.

Matthew Shardlake, lawyer and long-time supporter of Reform, has been sent by Cromwell to uncover the truth behind the dark happenings at Scarnsea. But investigation soon forces Shardlake to question everything that he hears, and everything that he intrinsically believes . . .


  • Loved it!

    Really enjoyed this book. I’m a major geek when it comes to anything even remotely linked to the Tudor period so this was right up my street! Very much enjoyed how the author clearly sets the scene, descriptions of the people and situations are vivid and make you feel that you are there in the room with them ( or do I just have a vivid imagination?!). Once I downloaded the book I found it hard to put down. Now downloaded the next in the series and again look forward to settling down with my book and a cuppa. Thoroughly recommend this book and the author has a new fan.
