The Piccadilly Plot - Susanna Gregory Summary

'Fans will be pleased to hear that Susanna Gregory has yet again hit on a winning formula of taking a likeable main character, involving him in a gripping plot and setting them within a commendably realistic setting. It is another bravura performance' - Historical Novels Review -------------------------- The seventh adventure in the Thomas Chaloner series. Thomas Chaloner is relieved to be summoned back to London. His master, the Earl of Clarendon, has sent him to Tangier to investigate a case of corruption. Chaloner will be glad to be home, to be reunited with his new wife, but the trivial reason for his recall exasperates him - the theft of material from the construction site of Clarendon's embarrassingly sumptuous new house just north of Piccadilly. Within hours of his return, Chaloner considers these thefts even more paltry as he is thrust into extra investigations involving threats of assassination, a stolen corpse and a scheme to frame the Queen for treason. Yet there are connections from them all which thread through the unfinished Clarendon House... 'Pungent with historical detail' (Irish Times) 'A richly imagined world of colourful medieval society and irresistible monkish sleuthing' (Good Book Guide) 'Corpses a-plenty, exciting action sequences and a satisfying ending' (Mystery People)

A Poisonous Plot - Susanna Gregory Summary

The twenty first chronicle in the Matthew Bartholomew series. In 1358, over a century after its foundation in Cambridge, the college of Michaelhouse is facing a serious shortfall of funds and competition from upstarts rivals such as Zachary Hostel. Their problems are made no easier by the hostility of the town's inhabitants who favour the university moving away to the Fens. This simmering tension threatens to break into violence when a well-known tradesman is found dead in one of the colleges. Matthew Bartholomew knows he was poisoned but cannot identify the actual substance, never mind the killer. He also worries that other illnesses and deaths may have been caused by the effluent from his sister's dye works. Torn between loyalties to his kin and to his college, he fears the truth may destroy both his personal and professional life, but he knows he must use his skills as a physician to discover the truth before many more lose their lives entirely. 'A first-rate treat for mystery lovers' (Historical Novels Review) 'Susanna Gregory has an extraordinary ability to conjure up a strong sense of time and place' (Choice)

The Clerkenwell Affair - Susanna Gregory Summary

In the spring of 1666 everyone's first reaction to a sudden death at the palace of White Hall is that the plague has struck, but the killing of Thomas Chiffinch was by design, not disease. Chiffinch was holder of two influential posts - Keeper of the Closet and Keeper of the Jewels - and rival courtiers have made no secret of their wish to succeed to those offices. To Thomas Chaloner, ordered to undertake the investigation, such avarice gives a whole host of suspects an ample motive for murder. The same courtiers are at the heart of the royal entourage endorsing the King's licentious and ribald way of life, and Chaloner has some sympathy with the atmosphere of outrage and disgust at such behaviour. London's citizens, already irked by the wealthy fleeing to the country at the outbreak of the plague, have scant patience with the Court on its return. The city is abuzz with rumours of dissent and rebellion, fuelled by predictions from a soothsayer in Clerkenwell of a rain of fire destroying the capital on Good Friday. Chaloner initially dismisses such talk as nonsense, but as he uncovers ever more connections to Clerkenwell among his suspects, he begins to fear that there is also design behind the rumours - and that, come Easter Day, the King and his Court might find themselves the focus of yet another rebellion.

A Grave Concern - Susanna Gregory Summary

For the twentieth anniversary of the start of the Matthew Bartholomew series, Sphere is delighted to reissue all of the medieval monk's cases with beautiful new series-style covers. ------------------------------------ The twenty second chronicle of Matthew Bartholomew. Identifying the murderer of the Chancellor of the University is not the only challenge facing physician Matthew Bartholomew. Many of his patients have been made worse by the ministrations of a 'surgeon' recently arrived from Nottingham, his sister is being rooked by the mason she has commissioned to build her husband's tomb, and his friend, Brother Michael, has been offered a Bishopric which will cause him to leave Cambridge. Brother Michael, keen to leave the University in good order, is determined that the new Chancellor will be a man of his choosing. The number of contenders putting themselves forward for election threatens to get out of control, then more deaths in mysterious circumstances make it appear that someone is taking extreme measures to manipulate the competition. With passions running high and a bold killer at large, both Bartholomew and Brother Michael fear the very future of the University is at stake.

Lamentation - C.J. SANSOM Summary

Sombres machinations, passions dévastatrices et tensions religieuses au cœur de l'Angleterre tourmentée des Tudor ; une nouvelle enquête de Matthew Shardlake, le talentueux avocat bossu, confronté au plus grand des défis : sauver la reine. Angleterre, été 1546 Rien ne va plus au royaume des Tudor : alors que le tyrannique Henri VIII s'apprête à pousser son dernier soupir, le pays se retrouve de nouveau en proie aux pires tensions religieuses. À l'heure de recommander son âme à Dieu, Henri VIII, bâtisseur de la foi anglicane, entreprend un ultime rapprochement avec Rome et le catholicisme. La chasse aux hérétiques protestants est de nouveau ouverte, et les bûchers ne désemplissent pas. C'est dans ce contexte explosif que l'avocat bossu Matthew Shardlake se voit contacté par la reine Catherine Parr, sixième épouse du souverain. Celle-ci se trouve dans une situation délicate : protestante convaincue, la reine a déposé ses pensées dans son journal intime, sous l'intitulé " Lamentation d'une pècheresse ". Un journal qui a disparu et dont quelques feuillets ont été retrouvés chez un imprimeur fraîchement assassiné. Et si les conseillers catholiques du roi avaient en leur possession la preuve de l'hérésie de la souveraine ? Quelle machination se cache derrière le vol du journal ? Que risque-t-elle si l'affaire arrive jusqu'aux oreilles d'Henri VIII ? Prêt à tout pour aider sa fidèle protectrice, Shardlake se lance dans une enquête épineuse et particulièrement dangereuse. À qui se fier ? Et si les amis protestants étaient plus dangereux que les ennemis catholiques ? Comment pénétrer le milieu des activistes religieux sans prendre le risque d'être soi-même accusé d'hérésie et de finir au bûcher ?
