    C.J. Sansom is one of the most entertaining historical fiction authors I have ever encountered. I was sick and tired of crime fiction. Most of the novels I read relied on tried and tested concepts to tell stories I had heard a thousand different times.

    Then I came across ‘Sovereign,’ a novel set during the reign of King Henry VIII, a period that caught my interest because of the many TV shows that have explored the Tudor era.

    Unlike all those shows, Sansom’s book was crime fiction. At the center was Mathew Shardlake, a lawyer with a hunchback that had to solve a murder. ‘Sovereign’ was as fresh and exciting as crime fiction could get. After reading every novel in the series, I have spent the last two years waiting for a new Mathew Shardlake installment.

    From the looks of this list, it isn’t out yet. I am hesitant to read the author’s interviews just in case he confirms what I fear: that this series is well and truly over. I don’t want to hear that. I want more.
