Summer, 1545. England is at war. Henry VIII's invasion of France has gone badly wrong, and a massive French fleet is preparing to sail across the Channel. As the English fleet gathers at Portsmouth, the country raises the largest militia army it has ever seen. The King has debased the currency to pay for the war, and England is in the grip of soaring inflation and economic crisis. Meanwhile Matthew Shardlake is given an intriguing legal case by an old servant of Queen Catherine Parr. Asked to investigate claims of "monstrous wrongs" committed against a young ward of the court, which have already involved one mysterious death, Shardlake and his assistant Barak journey to Portsmouth. Once arrived, Shardlake and Barak find themselves in a city preparing to become a war zone; and Shardlake takes the opportunity to also investigate the mysterious past of Ellen Fettipace, a young woman incarcerated in the Bedlam. The emerging mysteries around the young ward, and the events that destroyed Ellen's family nineteen years before, involve Shardlake in reunions both with an old friend and an old enemy close to the throne. Events will converge on board one of the King?s great warships, primed for battle in Portsmouth harbour . . .… (mais)

Thank heavens this was less gruesome than the previous entry in the series! The mysteries were compelling, every answer leading to more questions, pulling me along. In the historical backdrop, religion has faded to a secondary concern as England prepares to defend itself against a French invasion. As usual, Sansom shows us the impacts on all people, especially the lower classes. Shardlake picks up a couple more waifs and strays, always nice for him. Can't wait to read the next one! ( )

Oh this was good! I nearly missed my bus stop several times. Shardlake & Jack Barak are two wonderful creations; very human and often annoy the hell out of each other but when the chips are down they see each other through. The answer to one of the two mysteries to be solved was a real shocker-didn't see it coming at all and very clever. Shardlake also has a nasty encounter with his old enemy Richard Rich. As ever beautifully rich in historical detail and just as you feel it would be like to live in Tudor England. ( )

This was very good as ever, and the wardship strand was clever - I thought I had worked it out at one point, but I hadn't. There was a bit too much detail of all the ships at Portsmouth and endless trekking around Hampshire for me to give it 5 stars, but this is still the best series I have read for a long time. ( )

I've enjoyed all the Shardlake series of books so far. This was a bit of a let down, rather slow and overlong. The second half of the book was better than the first. ( )

The Matthew Shardlake series by CJ Sansom continues to get better. ‘Heartstone’, the penultimate book of the six, involves a puzzle which kept me guessing until the reveal. Despite Shardlake vowing to take a back seat from Royal intrigues, the Tudor lawyer/detective is pulled into a case at the behest of Queen Catherine Parr. This is a great series to lose yourself in.
A tutor, son of one of the Queen’s staff, has alleged an injustice done against a former pupil, Hugh Curteys, by the Hobbey family who adopted Hugh and his sister Emma after the death of their parents. This complaint takes Shardlake before the Court of Wards, not Shardlake’s natural territory, where the lives and rights of orphaned minors are protected. In truth, it is rife with fraud and abuse and the case brings Shardlake face-to-face with old and new enemies.
A journey into Hampshire at the time King Henry VIII is mobilising his army and navy south to oppose the expected invasion by the French, is ill-advised. Normal life is suspended as Henry distributes new coinage, devalued to pay for his war, and men are conscripted in the fields and the streets. But Shardlake, as ever driven by the desire to correct injustice, becomes the scourge of the Hobbey family at Hoyland Priory, north of Portsmouth. Despite the misgivings of his clerk, Jack Barack, Shardlake also takes the opportunity to research another mystery; Ellen Fettiplace, a patient at Bedlam who featured in earlier novels, was born in a Sussex village and Shardlake takes the opportunity to research the events which led to her madness and imprisonment.
This is a clever series with legal cases providing the puzzles and Tudor politics – and this time, war – providing the scheming, manipulative characters. With the story climaxing on board the Mary Rose as it sets sail against the French, we all know the history but cannot know Shardlake’s part in it. This is a long book, encompassing the Curteys and Fettiplace mysteries and the preparations for war as Shardlake and Barak travel south with a company of archers destined to fight on one of the great warships. Stuffed with history and fascinating detail.

"Sansom brilliantly exploits the hindsight that we bring to the historical novel, for we turn the pages with bated breath, waiting for the inevitable, wondering who will survive."
