Sansom died in April 2024.


Sansom’s meticulous attention to historical detail and vivid characters make this Tudor mystery as gripping and vital as any modern thriller
*The Times*

The fourth in C. J. Sansom’s superb Tudor detective series . . . As with the previous books, Samson’s narrative is highly visual and Revelation will clearly make a white-knuckle film . . . don’t expect to put the book down until you’ve seen it through to the apocalyptic finale

Sansom’s deeply resonant novel depicts Tudor London as a benighted city overrun by fundamentalist fanatics, heretic-burners and the madness of crowds, while his narrative’s tingling intrigues will have you hooked from first page to last
*Sunday Times*

Historical mysteries are all the rage, but Sansom’s are in a class of their own. His sheer narrative skill is matchless
*Mail on Sunday*

This ambitious panorama of a book, the fourth in Sansom’s series set in not-so-merrie Tudor England, more than lives up to the promise of the previous three . . . With wonderful scene-setting . . . plus some deft plotting, Revelation is an absorbing and thought-provoking window on the Tudor world

Terror stalks Tudor London in this latest pungently atmospheric novel from the master of the historical murder mystery
*Sunday Times Culture*

Sansom’s powerful and seductive historicism militates against the particular and the personal, or, indeed, the naturalistic. His vivid Tudor London is larger than life, just as we fondly imagine it to be: dangerous, dirty, noisy, picturesque and, above all, different

C. J. Sansom’s novels, set amid the stench and scandal of the sixteenth century, are impressive both for their intricate detail and serpentine plot twists
*Independent's 'Books of the Year’*
