Shardlake is trying to keep a low profile, believing himself to be out of favour with Thomas Cromwell but trying to maintain his London-based legal practice. He has been pulled, against his better judgement, into defending Elizabeth Wentworth, charged with murdering her cousin. But Elizabeth refuses to plead either guilty or not guilty. As a result she will be crushed under weights until she pleads or dies. Shardlake is powerless to help the girl yet she is suddenly granted a reprieve - courtesy of Cromwell. The cost of the reprieve to Shardlake is two weeks once again in the service of Cromwell. Cromwell, however, is no longer the triumphant, irresistible force he once was, not least because of the ill-fated marriage he arranged for the King with Anne of Cleves. Cromwell is running out of options, but he has one more card to play: Greek Fire, an ancient weapon considered lost long ago, which has turned up again in the hands of two alchemist brothers. This is the kind of gift to guarantee the King's favour, it is also the kind of gift that people kill for...Hide synopsis

Sansom writes great historical fiction! This is book 2 in a series, narrated by a lawyer trying to navigate his way through the legal and religious upheavals of Henry VIII, while retaining his own head. Each book contains a mystery of it's own, and wonderful historical characters and settings. Sansom ...
All of C.J. Sansom books I highly recommend, including Dark Fire. C.J. throws you back in time to London during King Henry VIII reign and at a most historic and dangerous time. Then trail along with Matthew Shardlake as he tries to solve a murder, and keep his own head.
'Dark Fire' skillfully develops the characters and settings that Sansom created in 'Dissolution' and has given us another excellent read. The central character, Mathew Shardlake, is well-rounded: a gentle, vulnerable man with the professional strength and integrity to make him an effective observer ...
