I finished Revelation which took some doing as the thing could be a doorstop with its size....methinks Sansome's caught a case of Stephen King Itis LOL I don't want to go into a whole lot of detail because it will just ruin it for the rest of ya. Suffice to say yesm indeed there do be a crazed religious serial killer & Shardlake is recruited by the brothers Seymour & Cranmer to stop that nonsense because tis right round when Henry casts his eye on Catherine Parr & the murders keep happening in her London 'hood & it does turn out later that she is a "whore of Babylon" target for the nutcase. Shardlake is taking it personal-like because the 1st victim is a lawyer pal of his artistically arranged in a fountain in Lawyerland for finding (yknow, they were all clumped together in a 'hood round the Knights Templar church, I just can't recall which they were in, methinks Chancery). Dude opens a whole lot of vials LOL before they manage it. Inventive interpretations translating into creative murders lemmee tell ya. Gruesome even. Didja know corpses were sprinkled with rosemary ere wound into the sheet to keep em from making the mourners puke? Yesm I didn't need to know that either LOL Impatiently waiting for Henry to die to see how Shardlake gets along with Mary in the next adventure. Go read, tis nice.
