Set around the history of Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries, hunchback lawyer Matthew Shardlake is sent to investigate a closed room murder. A great story with a number of twists and superbly written. Samson combines superb story telling with eloquent writing and descritions which transport you right into the heart of Tudor England.

Dissolution is set in the 1530s, a time of great religious change in England. Cromwell's commissioner, Robin Singleton, has been found murdered, in the monastery, he was sent to investigate, at Scarnsea, on the Sussex coast. Lawyer, Matthew Shardlake, and his assistant Mark Poer have been sent to the monastery, to uncover the murderer.
I found this book a fascinating read. The descriptions, and attention to detail in the book really bring the Tudor era to life. You can almost feel the atmosphere of impending doom and desperation in the monastery, as the monastic way of life draws to its end, after hundreds of years.
