Book 3 in the highly acclaimed Matthew Shardlake mystery series, now available from Vintage Canada.
 
Autumn, 1541. King Henry VIII has set out on a spectacular Progress to the North to attend an extravagant submission by his rebellious subjects in York. Already in the city are lawyer Matthew Shardlake and his assistant, Jack Barak. As well as legal work processing local petitions to the King, Shardlake has reluctantly undertaken a special mission for Archbishop Cranmer--to ensure the welfare of an important but dangerous conspirator who is to be returned to London for interrogation. But the murder of a York glazier involves Shardlake in deeper mysteries, connected not only to the prisoner in York Castle but to the royal family itself. And when Shardlake and Barak stumble upon a cache of secret documents which could threaten the Tudor throne, a chain of events unfolds that will lead to Shardlake facing the most terrifying fate of the age...

Praise for the Matthew Shardlake series and Sovereign: "Sansom deserves as wide a readership as P. D. James, Ruth Rendell, Ian Rankin and Minette Walters." —The Independent "Sansom has the perfect mixture of novelistic passion and historical detail."—Antonia Fraser, Daily Telegraph "Marvellously exciting and totally convincing." —The Spectator "Deeper, stronger and subtler than The Name of the Rose." —The Independent on Sunday "Sansom has returned to his excellent Matthew Shardlake series set in 16th-century England.... Brilliant." —The Globe and Mail
