Historical Mystery Set for
Discussion on April 9
Dark Fire, the second book in CJ Sansomís critically acclaimed Matthew Shardlake mystery series set in Tudor England, will be the subject of Lynette Ingram's book discussion April 9 at 6:00 p.m. This novel won the Ellis Peters Historical Dagger Award in 2005 and Sansomís Revelation was named USA Todayís Best Book of the Year in 2009.
According to the publisher's synopsis, it is 1540 and Henry VIII has been on the throne for thirty-one years. Lawyer Matthew Shardlake has been called to help a young girl accused or murder who refuses to speak in her own defense even when threatened with torture. On the verge of losing his case, Shardlake is suddenly granted a reprieve. His benefactor is Thomas Cromwell, the kingís feared vicar general, who offers him two more weeks to investigate further. In exchange, Shardlake must find a lost cache of "Dark Fire," an ancient weapon of mass destruction. What ensures is a page turning adventure filled with period detail and wonderful characters.
As usual, the meeting will be held at BookmanBookwoman in Hillsboro Village.
