About This Item

The First UK Printing published by Macmillan, London in 2003. The BOOK is in near FINE condition with a hint of pushing at the spine tips. The text block remains very clean. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The WRAPPER is complete and in FINE condition. The scarce promotional WRAPAROUND BAND is complete and is in FINE condition. The wrapper and band look very striking in the removable Brodart archival protector. The book has been SIGNED by C.J.Sansom to the title page. The ticket for the signing event will be provided as provenance - This has also been Signed by the author. The first title in the hugely successful 'Shardlake' series. C.J.Sansom is a very reluctant signer these days. Scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

Synopsis

Exciting and elegantly written, Dissolution is an utterly compelling first novel and a riveting portrayal of Tudor England. The year is 1537, and the country is divided between those faithful to the Catholic Church and those loyal to the king and the newly established Church of England. When a royal commissioner is brutally murdered in a monastery on the south coast of England, Thomas Cromwell, Henry VIII’s feared vicar general, summons fellow reformer Matthew Shardlake to lead the inquiry. Shardlake and his young protégé uncover evidence of sexual misconduct, embezzlement, and treason, and when two other murders are revealed, they must move quickly to prevent the killer from striking again.
