A historical mystery set in a monastery during Tudor England.

Lawyer Matthew Shardlake is sent by vicar general Thomas Cromwell to investigate the murder of his commissioner at a monastery in southern England. As Matthew uncovers layers of intrigue and the bodies start piling up he fears for his own life even as he starts to question his own ardent Reformist convictions. This title is the first in a series so there is a feast of greed, menace, and conspiracy to come if you enjoy this one.
