Book review

martyrHaving been a fan of C J Sansom’s books for quite a while, I’ve been looking around for other authors who also set crime novels in Tudor England. I’ve come across Rory Clements whose books feature a John Shakespeare (and yes there is a connection to William!) who works as part of Walsingham’s extensive network of spies. His first is “Martyr”, which I’ve enjoyed, as it’s well researched and believable.It’s also a very satisfyingly long novel, again like the Shardlake series. There are others in the series and I’d certainly recommend them to anyone who enjoys C J Sansom’s novels.
