It is 1540 and the hottest summer of the sixteenth century. Matthew Shardlake, believing himself out of favour with Thomas Cromwell, is busy trying to maintain his legal practice and keep a low profile. But his involvement with a murder case, defending a girl accused of brutally murdering her young cousin, brings him once again into contact with the king?s chief minister - and a new assignment . . . The secret of Greek Fire, the legendary substance with which the Byzantines destroyed the Arab navies, has been lost for centuries. Now an official of the Court of Augmentations has discovered the formula in the library of a dissolved London monastery. When Shardlake is sent to recover it, he finds the official and his alchemist brother brutally murdered - the formula has disappeared. Now Shardlake must follow the trail of Greek Fire across Tudor London, while trying at the same time to prove his young client?s innocence. But very soon he discovers nothing is as it seems . . .… (mehr)

There were two mysteries running in parallel, and the one I was less interested in got more attention. Shardlake also bungled that one a bit, which is never endearing in a mystery novel. However, Sansom is keeping up the good work with showing how the religious and political turmoil in England is affecting people in all ranks of life and the variety of religious experiences, including Shardlake's own doubts. Also, I still find Shardlake eminently likable, even crush-worthy. I found it hard to put down and stayed up late to finish it. I'm definitely eager to get my hands on the next volume. ( )

501 pages: 300 pages too long...

All the intrigue, double dealing & ignoring what was in front of their faces all along....

The book deals with Cromwell's betrayal & his grasping to save himself with an ancient "Dark Fire" a most voluble substance & against Norfolk's machinations.

There were other story lines, but they served as distractions... and the blindness of Shardlake & Cromwell's retainer inability to figure out who was the betrayer as well as who was behind the plot to discredit Cromwell was amazingly boring & over=written.

Won't be reading another one of these mysteries again. ( )

I am very much enjoying the Matthew Shardlake series. ( )

This is the second book in the series I have read. Incidentally, I haven't read the first, it was a later one. I enjoyed both and I intend to buy the others in the series. They are set in Tudor England. Lots of famous names are dropped in these stories. The stories are purely fiction but the historical background has been well researched.Good mysteries. ( )

Interesting story! At times it moved slowly--seemed to take a long time for Shardlake to unravel the mystery. Overall though, the plot was well-developed. ( )

Man is an angry, savage being. Sometimes faith becomes an excuse for battle. It is no real faith then. In justifying their positions in the name of God, men silence God.
