    Set in 1537, a time of revolution when England had seen its greatest changes since 1066, the trilogy starts with Dissolution. In this book, Henry VIII has proclaimed himself Supreme Head of the Church and has brought in new laws, rigged trials and the greatest network of informers ever seen. Meanwhile, Thomas Cromwell has sent a team of commissioners to investigate the monasteries in an attempt to dissolve them. Dr Matthew Shardlake is a lawyer and long-term supporter of Reform, but when he's sent to investigate a horrific murder of one of Cromwell's team he begins to doubt everything he ever believed...

    Dark Fire finds Shardlake trying to keep a low profile but this doesn't last long. He's soon sent to follow the trail of Greek Fire (the legendary substance with which the Byzantines destroyed the Arab navies) across the whole of Tudor London; and Sovereign finds Shardlake investigating the murder of a York glazier who may well be connected to the royal family...
